Find out how much you can claim.Get started
A more personal approach to your warehouse or manufacturing injury claim.
Employees, contractors, and casual workers may all be entitled to claim compensation for injuries sustained in warehouse and manufacturing jobs.
We’ve helped many warehouse and manufacturing workers get compensation for injuries, 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 workers compensation lawyer, tell your side of the story, and find out how much you can claim.
What can I claim for a warehouse/ manufacturing injury?
The amount you can claim depends on your whole person impairment (WPI) assessment. Here’s a summary of entitlements:
|Workers Compensation Payment NSW||Description|
These are payments to compensate you for lost income while you’re off work.
Payment of your medical, hospital, ambulance, rehabilitation (including home help) and travel expenses.
|Permanent impairment payout||
A lump sum compensation payout to cover permanent impairment as a result of 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 qualify for a permanent impairment lump sum, you’ll need to be assessed as having a WPI of 11% or more. Our specialist workers compensation lawyers can make sure your assessment is done correctly and that you receive your full entitlements, including any lump sums you’re eligible for.
How we can help you.
Here are four ways our workers compensation lawyers can get more compensation for your injury:
You’re in safe hands with Law Partners.
Your workers compensation lawyer is backed by a team of specialists including paralegals, medico-legal experts, forensic accountants and barristers. Your team will work hard for you, check in with you regularly and always keep you up to date with your case. You’re in safe hands with Australia’s largest specialist personal injury firm.
Many lawyers have the technical ability to run a successful case but being able to connect with your client through a personal approach is what separates the great lawyers from the good lawyers. And it’s this combination that my team and I bring to every case.
If you truly empathise with your clients and understand what a successful outcome would mean to them, you’ll naturally be driven to succeed. Every client deserves a Solicitor who possesses this natural drive.
I live by the mantra that nothing great comes without hard work. And this is so true when it comes to personal injury law, as no great outcome can be achieved without putting in the work and building the best possible case.

I strive to always deliver a level of client care that I’d want for my family if they needed compensation. And it starts with communication and using plain language that’s easy for my clients to understand.
I firmly believe that honesty with great client care, is the best recipe for achieving the optimal outcome in every claim. And this is what I strive to achieve for every client.
My professional approach revolves around client transparency – ensuring clients are informed and always feel comfortable enough to be able to ask any questions or express any concerns. This for me, is a healthy client/solicitor relationship.
No matter what the case, my main priority is to always act in the best interests of my client, whilst never compromising on client service.
Robert HopperManaging Solicitor
Without doubt, communication is the key to law, particularly when dealing with clients who are in stressful situations. It’s not just about giving good advice but equally, giving that advice in a way that is clear and easy to comprehend.

Frequently asked questions.
Yes, if you’re a casual employee injured at work in NSW, you’re entitled to claim workers compensation. Workers compensation for casual employees is not only limited to citizens and permanent residents. If you’re on a visa that permits you to work in Australia and you’re injured at work, you’re still eligible to claim workers compensation benefits.
If your workers compensation claim is denied, there are options open to you to dispute the decision.
The insurer that has denied your claim must notify you in writing of their reasons for the denial and provide information on the next steps available to you.
Here are some examples of common disputes:
- The insurer doesn’t consider the person making the claim to be a ‘worker’ (under the legislation).
- The insurer considers that employment wasn’t the main contributing factor to the injury.
- It wasn’t ‘reasonably necessary’ to have the medical treatment or to incur other expenses claimed.
On 1 March 2021, the Personal Injury Commission (PIC) became the central body for resolving all workers compensation disputes.
If you have a dispute with an insurer, here are some options:
- Request an internal review by the insurer, who must respond within 14 days.
- Lodge a dispute directly with the PIC.
- Call Law Partners for free legal advice – it may be possible for us to provide you with a lawyer at no cost to you.
A no win no fee lawyer offers to run your case for you and only get paid when you win. If you choose the right lawyer, it’s an excellent option that allows you to pursue your claim without any risk, but it’s important to check the lawyer’s costs agreement to fully understand what’s covered. With some no win no fee lawyers you can still end up having to pay thousands of dollars in disbursements if your case is unsuccessful. This is because their no win no fee agreements cover their professional fees but not the costs they incur. At Law Partners, our no win no fee, no disbursements guarantee covers all our costs and disbursements as well as our professional fees, so you can pursue your claim with peace of mind.

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.
So grateful to Lara Karam and her team for all the help they provided throughout my claim. They were attentive, caring and very knowledgeable. Thank you Law Partners for all your help!! I highly recommend.
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
