Workers Compensation Lawyers Sydney
Who can make a workers compensation claim?
All employers are required to have workers compensation insurance for their employees in their workplace.
Due to this, all workers, including volunteers and those doing work experience are eligible to access worker’s compensation entitlements if they are injured or ill because of their work regardless of whether they’re full-time, part-time or casual.
What types of workplace injuries can I claim?
There are a number of workplace injuries which can be claimed for including:
- back, neck and head injuries
- upper and lower limb injuries
- soft issue and eye injuries
- shock, anxiety and depression
- psychological injury claims
Our team of experienced workers compensation lawyers in Sydney can discuss whether your injury falls under Common Law or WorkCover and help achieve the best outcome you deserve.
Our ‘No Win – No Fee‘ policy is available for workplace injury compensation claims and we offer home or hospital visits if you are too ill to come to us.
How long will it take?
The majority of workers compensation claims are able to be finalised within six to eighteen months of the claim starting. If your claim proceeds to court, it would add another six to twelve months to the duration of the claim. However, it is highly unlikely that your compensation claim will proceed to court, as most cases claiming workers compensation are resolved prior to this stage.
