The Process for Your Compensation Claim

Being injured at work is difficult, traumatic and can be a trying time for you and your family. You may need to take an extended period off work, and in some cases, you may not be able to return to your job. And during this difficult time, the first thing you should be focusing on is your recovery and rehabilitation. The stress of worrying about money and being able to support your family shouldn’t impact on your ability to recover, which is why it’s important to commence your claim with a work injury lawyer as soon as possible.

We can help you to access the appropriate compensation, whether that’s through WorkCover, workplace insurance, your superannuation or through a private avenue. While no amount of money can take away your injury and the pain and suffering it has caused, financial compensation can go a long way to alleviating the stress and upset which can occur following your incident.

Our compensation team will work with you to establish the grounds for your claim.

Step One - Get in touch
When you’ve been injured at work, there’s a lot to process. The first step in seeking compensation is to contact our worker’s compensation lawyers who can go over your injury and your potential to claim. They can discuss your situation with you and will be able to determine if you may be able to claim for compensation. This can be done over the phone or in our office, or we can come to you.
Step Two - Chat to one of our personal injury lawyers
Once we have gone through your workplace injury with you, it’s possible to determine whether you have a case to make a claim for compensation. At this stage, we’ll meet with you wherever possible and go over your incident in more detail. We’ll also go through how your claim will progress and how things will proceed from here.

Compensation law can be complicated, but with your personal injury lawyer by your side, you’ll understand every stage of the process. Due to the often complex nature of workplace injuries, it’s difficult to establish how long your claim will take to process but we can give you a better idea of how long the claim will take to finalise. This is an obligation free step of the process, and if at any point you don’t wish to proceed you can cease your claim.

Step Three - Preparing your claim
When you are satisfied with how your claim will go ahead, we’ll enter into a contract with you where we are authorised as your legal representation. We’ll also outline our fees here and go over our No Win No Fee payment method. We only receive payment from you once we have successfully completed your claim on your behalf.

When preparing your case, we’ll gather evidence like medical records, medical treatments, witness statements, supporting documents, video footage, and anything else that can support your claim.

Step Four - Proceeding with the claim
When we have gathered all of the evidence we need for your claim, we’ll commence proceedings. In most (if not all) cases, your workplace will have insurance, and it will be their insurer who is making the payment, not your employer directly. We will be on your side to work with you throughout this process and will advocate on your behalf.
Step Five - Settlement/Trial/Conclude your claim
In the majority of workplace accident cases, a settlement is reached out of court. A settlement occurs when your workplace injury lawyer and the other party agree on a figure for damages and compensation.

Your compensation amount is calculated based on a range of factors, including your age, loss of income, pain and suffering, medical expenses, and care required both now and in the future; in addition to a few other factors. If a settlement cannot be reached and your claim does proceed to court, your work injury lawyer will prepare a strong case to argue on your behalf.

Frequently Asked Questions About Motor Vehicle Injury Claims

How do I make a claim?
To be able to claim for a workplace accident, you will have suffered an injury at work. This injury can take the form of a psychological or physical injury, and it has to have been contracted in the course of your employment. You don’t need to have been at your workplace, and in many cases, you can claim for injuries incurred on your way to and from work, and to workplace-related venues such as meetings or other related travel. Injuries that are the aggravation of existing conditions may also be claimable.
How long will my claim take?
With every claim having different factors to consider it’s difficult to assess how long your claim will take to process. We can provide you with a better estimate of how long your claim will take in our assessment meeting.
Do I have to go to court?
With most workplace compensation claims, we will reach a settlement before your claim proceeds to court. Going to court adds additional cost and stress, and we try to avoid this wherever possible while still getting you the best possible outcome. In the event that your claim does go to court, you can rest assured that we are here to prepare a strong case for your claim and will be by your side every step of the way.
What kind of compensation am I entitled to?
When working with your personal injury lawyer in establishing your claim, we will look at your injuries, your age, future expenses (such as surgery), your loss of income (now and in the future), medical bills and out of pocket expenses, and any care you may need.
