Wendy’s Story

Work-related injuries are caused by a range of circumstances including dangerous workplace environments, poor safety equipment and even badly designed office workstations. They can happen through no fault of your own, or from a simple lapse of concentration – we all make mistakes. A work injury can develop over time, or it can be the result of an everyday accident that has a serious impact on your life. Wendy’s story is an example of a situation we’ve come across many times over the years – what started as a typical day at work turned into a major life-changing event.

Wendy slipped and fell on a wet floor working at a supermarket. She sustained a back injury, but didn’t realise how serious it was at the time. Wendy pushed through the pain and carried on working. When she finally reached the point where she couldn’t work, her employer denied responsibility and wouldn’t approve workers compensation to pay for her surgery. After calling Law Partners for advice she formed a close bond with her solicitor, and we pursued Wendy’s claim.

Getting to know Wendy and her family

When we first met Wendy she had been funding her own treatment through private health insurance. We discovered that Wendy relied heavily on pain medication which had side effects and her weight had ballooned. She was struggling with mounting debts, constant pain and depression. So in addition to compensation for Wendy’s original injury, we built a case to claim everything Wendy was entitled to.

Wendy’s successful claim

Our first step was to prove the employer’s liability and get Wendy compensation for her lost wages and treatment. Next we claimed a lump sum payment after Wendy’s surgery, and then we sued Wendy’s employer for negligence, so she received a lump sum payment for lost earnings, past and future. Wendy is now debt free and getting her life back on track, and has kept in regular contact with us.

How can I claim workers compensation?

Workers compensation is available to employees and sub-contractors who’ve been in an accident or sustained an injury at work, whether they’re at fault or not. Click on the links below for information on specific occupations:

Workers compensation is a compulsory form of insurance for all employers that provides protection to workers who suffer work-related injury or illness. Employers also have a duty to provide a safe workplace so that injuries are not likely happen. If you’ve been injured, your employer should lodge a claim with their insurer on your behalf. However claims can be denied, and if your employer has been negligent you might be eligible to claim common law damages. A specialist work accident injury lawyer can make sure you get everything you’re entitled to.

What can I claim for?

If you have a work-related injury or illness, you may be able to claim compensation for lost income, medical expenses, travel expenses, domestic assistance, pain and suffering and permanent impairment.

How do I make sure I get my full entitlements?

There’s one factor that will ultimately determine how much compensation you receive – and that’s how well your lawyer gets to know you personally. At first glance the consequences of your injuries might seem obvious. But our lawyers will take the time to find out more about you, your family and what your life was like before your accident, to really understand the impact it’s had on your life and successfully claim all the compensation you’re entitled to.
