If you have been injured at work, you may be entitled to benefits through WorkCover for loss of wages, medical expenses and rehabilitation costs. Importantly, you may also be able to claim damages if your injuries were caused as a result of negligence by your employer. For example, the negligence may involve an unsafe system of work, unsafe equipment, or an unsafe work environment. It can also cover the negligent actions of a co-worker. You may even be able to claim damages if you suffered injuries on someone else’s premises.
There are however time restrictions for lodging an application for WorkCover benefits. It is important to note if there has been negligence on behalf of your employer, you may be able to obtain more compensation via a Common Law claim than through the usual statutory process.
There are, however, time restrictions for lodging an application for WorkCover benefits or a Common Law WorkCover claim. We are able to assist you with your application. You need to contact us as soon as possible so we may protect your legal rights and discuss your entitlements.
Most of our compensation claims can be run under our “No Win/No Fee” policy. In other words, you will only need to pay our professional fees if there is a judgment or settlement in your favour.
