Have You Suffered Injury in a Work Accident?

Very happy with the services provided. Have only come in twice, once to meet our solicitor and the second time to settle our matter. Whole process was convenient and efficient, headache free process. The process was worth every step of the way. Was guided throughout the claim and very happy with the outcome. Would highly recommend the services. We live a fair distance away but the travel was definitely worth the outcome.

Workers’ Compensation Claims – How we help

In New South Wales, every employee has insurance cover usually paid by their employer. In the event an employee is injured while they are working, they are covered by Workers Compensation insurance which is managed by the WorkCover Authority of New South Wales.

Most small Workers Compensation Claims are easy to settle and usually do not require legal assistance. But if you have a claim that is more complex or forces you to be out of work for a long period of time, we are here help you! Most insurers can make it hard for you to receive your full entitlements.

We can help and advise you immediately after the injury to assist you in receiving all your entitlements.

Therefore, if you have suffered as a result of an injury at work and you are having trouble with your Workers Compensation Claims, call Gajic Lawyers for a chat on 1800 413 755.

What is Covered by Workers’ Compensation Claims?

In New South Wales, the organisation responsible for Workers Compensation is the WorkCover Authority of New South Wales.

Regardless of the type of your employment, your employer will usually have a Workers Compensation insurance policy. This policy covers you for many things, including:

  • Physical disability caused by an injury at work
  • Long-term illness caused by your nature and conditions of employment
  • RSI (Repetitive Strain Injury)
  • Mental illness (including stress)
  • Hearing loss
  • Injury caused while travelling during work

Workers Compensation can be paid in three ways by the insurers: it can be paid as a lump sum, weekly benefits and medical expenses.

There are 3 heads of entitlements in Worker Compensation, namely lump sumweekly benefits and medical expenses.

Lump Sum Compensation

A claim for lump sum compensation can be made in the event the injury has resulted in permanent impairment.  That claim depends on how serious your injuries are and how they restrict your ability to work. Permanent impairment assessments are determined by WorkCover-trained medical specialists.

Weekly Benefits Compensation

A claim for weekly benefits will depend on the following:

  • Your average weekly earnings before your injury
  • Your capacity to work after your injury and earnings
  • Time you are totally incapacitated from work

Medical Expenses Compensation

A claim for medical expenses depends on whether they are reasonable and necessary in accordance with the law and your injury. These claims can include expenses for treatment and surgery, which need to be pre-approved by the insurance company. There are time limits on claiming and recovering medical expenses.

If you require assistance with your Workers Compensation Claim, call Gajic Lawyers today on 1800 413 755.

Can I Claim Compensation for Injuries Sustained in a Car Accident On My Way to Work?

You may be able to make a claim for injuries sustained during work breaks and some journeys made in connection with your work.  There must be a real and substantial connection between your employment and the incident or accident which resulted in your injury.

You may be able to seek compensation if the incident happened whilst you were travelling:

  • in a motor vehicle (as a driver or passenger)
  • on public transport
  • as a pedestrian

If your accident happened whilst travelling to or from work and there is not a substantial connection between your employment, then our motor vehicle accident team can assist you. Click here for more information on motor vehicle claims.

What is WIRO and What Does it Mean for My Claim?

The NSW Government established the WorkCover Independent Review Office (WIRO) in 2012 as part of its reforms of the State’s Workers Compensation System.  WIRO regulates and pays solicitors fees and medical reports in Workers Compensation Claims.

Click here for more information on WIRO.

What About Workers Compensation for Emergency Workers (Police, Ambulance, Fire etc)

In June 2012, the New South Wales Government introduced changes to the NSW Workers Compensation System. These changes affect all new and existing Workers Compensation Claims, except claims for:

  • people with a dust disease claim under the Workers’ Compensation (Dust Diseases) Act 1942
  • police officers, paramedics and fire fighters
  • bush fire fighter and emergency service volunteers (Rural Fire Service, Surf Life Savers, SES volunteers)
  • workers injured while working in or around a coal mine

Workers from these categories are exempt from the Workers Compensation Legislation Amendment Act (2012) and they are assessed under the Workers Compensation Act (1987).
