Worker On Ladder - Injured in Work Accident

WorkCover compensation is available to all NSW workers who are injured at work and need time off or have any treatment expenses. But to make sure you get your full entitlements, you need a WorkCover lawyer who will take time to build a personal relationship with you and your family to understand the true impact of your injuries.

At Law Partners, we ask more questions and look beyond the obvious to make sure you get more compensation. We’ll also apply to IRO (the Independent Review Office) for funding to cover our fees so that there’s no cost to you.

How do I make a WorkCover claim?

If you’ve been injured at work, you should report your injury to your employer right away and make sure they report it to their WorkCover insurer. You can contact the insurer directly if you like. You’ll also need to get a certificate of capacity from your doctor, and the insurer will contact you to arrange an assessment of your injuries and then notify you whether it’s accepting liability for your claim.

But even if your claim has already been submitted, it’s a good idea to speak to a WorkCover lawyer to find out how much compensation you can claim. You might be entitled to lump sum compensation the insurer hasn’t told you about.

Frequently asked questions.

You can make a claim without using a WorkCover lawyer. However, every WorkCover 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 claim. An experienced WorkCover lawyer will be able to review your claim and make sure you receive your full entitlements. In particular, if you find yourself in a dispute with an insurer, having a 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 we’ll apply to IRO (the Independent Review Office) for funding to cover our fees so that there’s no cost to you.

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 WorkCover lump sum settlement:

PayoutDescription
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 learn more about permanent impairment lump sum payments, you can refer to our whole person impairment compensation calculator and guide.

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 WorkCover lawyer.

If your WorkCover 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.
  • Contact us on 13 15 15 and ask for free legal advice – it may be possible for you to get full legal representation at no cost to you.

Most Australian superannuation policies include TPD (Total and Permanent Disability) insurance. This provides you with disability benefits paid in one lump sum if you can’t work. However, the definition of TPD varies between policies – for example, your policy might cover you for:

  • Being unlikely to be able to return to work in your occupation
  • Being unlikely to be able to return to work in any occupation

Successful TPD insurance claims need to be backed by proof that you meet the criteria outlined in your TPD insurance policy. We can check your super funds for you and tell you how much you can claim – it’s a free service.

Stacey Baker gave Law Partners a
review on Google

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
