Mental health injury compensation FAQs.

You’ll need to show you have a psychological injury that occurred in the course of your employment, or your work was a significant contributing factor. This can be difficult to prove, but our workers compensation lawyers can build the evidence to support your claim. Building the evidence may include:

  • Meeting with you and your family to gain a detailed understanding of your situation
  • Interviews with your work colleagues and management
  • Medical and psychological assessments
  • Compiling witness statements

If you witnessed a traumatic event while you were working and it led to a psychological injury like PTSD, then it’s likely you can claim workers compensation.

Yes, PTSD is a diagnosable condition that qualifies for compensation under the NSW CTP scheme.

A lot of medical negligence claims are based on misdiagnosis of an illness. If your misdiagnosis led to the wrong treatment or delayed treatment, and that resulted in a worsening of your condition, then you may be able to make a medical negligence claim.

Shanelle's story

Shanelle's story

I didn't choose to seek compensation, I needed to

When department manager and devoted mother Shanelle was refused surgery for her injury, she turned to us for help.

“It was the best decision I’ve ever made. It’s just good to know that there are people out there who actually care that I’m injured. And that’s what Law Partners is about – they care.”

We all had one thing in common

I had no income so I was pretty stuck

Financial hardship as a result of serious injury is not only devastating to the individual but also their family. These people have managed to come out the other side and we’re honoured to have helped them on their journey.

John's story

I didn't want to wake up the next day

A freak work accident suffered years ago completely altered the course of John’s life. He could no longer work, he lost his family, suffered financially and effectively lost the will to live.
