It is your employer's responsibility to provide a safe working environment, but there are a range of common workplace hazards that can contribute to injury.
Some of the injuries we see on a regular basis include:
If you’ve been injured at work or believe you have suffered an illness that is work related, you may be entitled to compensation. There are several steps involved in making a claim, starting with discussing your situation with a doctor, reporting your injury to your employer as well as your employer’s Workers’ Compensation insurer.
We can help you if:
Our No Win - No Fee* arrangement is generally available for all types of Workers Compensation claims. This means you do not pay for legal fees unless your case is successful. If your case is successful, we'll then charge our professional fees. Fees are not a percentage of your compensation entitlement, but are agreed to at the beginning of your case - meaning no nasty surprises for you at the end.
You'll receive a document setting out the details of the No Win - No Fee* arrangement after your first appointment. You've not committed to anything until you sign and return the document to us. This is so you can take the time to understand your options and make a decision you're happy with.
