Emergency Workers at Accident Site - Injured While on Duty

Hurt on duty? We’ll take a more personal approach with your claim.

As an emergency services worker in NSW, you can claim compensation if you’ve been hurt on duty, you’re medically retired, or no suitable duties can be found for you.

We’ve helped thousands of emergency services workers get compensation, but we understand your situation is unique, and you’re different from every one of them. Getting you more compensation starts with building a personal relationship with you, to truly understand your situation.

There’s no cost to speak to a lawyer who specialises in emergency services workers compensation claims, tell your side of the story, and find out how much you can claim.

We’ll get you more compensation.

With police, fire and ambulance officers, it’s not just a matter of processing a workers compensation claim. There’s a specific set of rules relating to workers compensation, TPD and income protection which are unlike any other worker in NSW. But unfortunately, claims are often processed as standard workers compensation claims, and the officers will never know what they missed out on. We have extensive experience with emergency services claims and we’ll make sure you receive absolutely everything you’re entitled to.

What injures can I claim for?

As an emergency services worker you put yourself at risk and injuries are all too common.

You can claim compensation for physical injuries that can result from a range of situations, including:

Police

Chasing and apprehending offenders, gun belt-related injuries and other accidents in the line of duty.


Ambulance officers and paramedics

Overexertion and body stress, exposure to harmful substances, assaults and violence that can occur to ambulance, paramedics and healthcare workers during duty.


Firefighters

Falls and jumps, direct contact with fire, hazardous materials, excessive heat and lifting significant weights.


Emergency services workers are also generally at higher risk of injuries from trips and falls and motor vehicle accidents.

You can also claim for psychological injuries such as PTSD, whether they were caused by a one-off incident or have accumulated over time from a series of traumatic events.

Frequently asked questions.

You can make a workers compensation claim without using a workers compensation lawyer. However, every workers compensation claim is different, and it can be hard to know if you’re getting everything you’re entitled to. It’s also common for insurers to deny part or all of a compensation claim. Our workers compensation lawyers can review your claim and make sure you receive your full entitlements. It’s very common for emergency services workers to suffer multiple injuries, both physical and psychological, in the course of their working life. So it’s very important you have a specialist workers compensation lawyer on your side to make sure you receive your maximum entitlements under each separate claim. If you find yourself in a dispute with an insurer, having a workers compensation lawyer on your side will give you a much better chance of success.

We’ll provide you with free advice, and if you decide to proceed with your claim the workers compensation insurer is responsible for paying your legal costs at the end of your case.

If we find that you’re entitled to Permanent Impairment or Work Injury Damages lump sum payments, we’ll work on a no win no fee, no disbursements basis, so you’ll only need to pay our fees if we win, and you receive your lump sum compensation.

There are two ways you can get a workers compensation lump sum settlement:

Payout Description
Permanent impairment payout

A lump sum compensation payout to cover a permanent impairment as a result of a work-related injury or illness.

Work injury damages payout

Also known as common law claim, this is a lump sum payout for damages if your injury was caused by your employer’s negligence.

To find out of you qualify for a work injury damages payout, you can call 13 15 15 and get free legal advice from a Workers compensation lawyer who has experience with emergency services claims.

I would like to give a huge sincere thank you to Chantille and her team who helped me with probably the most difficult period of my life, Chantille was caring, honest, thoughtful, understanding and listened to me without judgment and importantly was supportive, I was updated every step of the way and informed of all the proceedings, time frames and possible outcomes.

Chantille was professional and made me feel comfortable at all times, she is caring and worked diligently with me to achieve the best possible outcome, I couldn’t be more pleased with the result. Every person I came in contact with was genuine and eager to assist in every way possible from the receptionists all the way up, absolutely wonderful people.

Thank you all for being there in my time of need and thank for laughing at my jokes bless you all.

Stacey Baker gave Law Partners a

This company has been very good to me in trying to get me some resources from the company where I was hurt or injured they have been very good in contacting me and they seem very knowledgeable of what they doing especially the younger lady Sarah King she is a brilliant Solicitor I would have her beside me any day to fight for me.

Unfortunately The company that I had the injury with are stating they have no information or records or video now of the accident so I have to withdraw my case because of them stating they have no information or records on my case but they’re not telling the truth because it really happened and I can’t fight goliath I’m only the little person needless to say Sarah has been really wonderful in trying to fight goliath for me so if anyone ever needs to have a good representation of a solicitor I recommend this company very very well it’s just a shame I have had to withdraw through the people saying where the accident happened they have no record it never happened but it did.

This company is a great company for people who have all the proof they need to pursue their accident case highly recommend this company

Very professional and very easy to reach and understand a situation really well and finally they have won a legal battle with my insurer.
