Workers’ Compensation

Personal service by real people

If you suffer an injury at work you may be entitled to Workers’ Compensation.

Workers’ Compensation is available to support workers who have been injured on the job. If you are injured at work, you may be able to claim compensation for the following:

  • Weekly payments of income maintenance
  • Medical and rehabilitation expenses
  • Lump sum for non economic loss (i.e. pain and suffering) and economic loss where a permanent impairment is suffered

Claims & compensation

To claim the above benefits no one needs to be at fault as long as you were injured in a situation that is covered.  For example, while actually undertaking the activities for which you are employed.

In certain circumstances a worker will also be entitled to a common law claim for damages where an injury has arisen as a result of the negligence or fault of a third party or parties.

Additionally, from 1 July 2015 common law claims for damages against an employer have been reintroduced if you are a seriously injured worker. A seriously injured worker is a worker who has been assessed as having a permanent whole person equivalent impairment of at least 30%. A Common Law claim will often give rise to more generous compensation. If you have been injured at work you may be unaware that such a claim is available to you.

Our experienced lawyers will advise you of all options available to you at an initial obligation free consultation.

Your interests are ours.
