Have you suffered a serious work-related injury? Are you having difficulty physically or financially recovering as a result?
If you have been injured whilst working you may be entitled to claim compensation for medical treatment, loss of wages, a lump sum* payment for permanent impairment or make a common law claim for damages. It is important that you seek legal advice before accepting any lump-sum payment from an insurer.
LHD Lawyers operates on a no win no fee basis - This means you only have to pay legal fees if we win the case.
A common law claim for damages is an addition claim for compensation as a result of negligence by your employer and possibly other third parties. Please call us for a obligation free to discuss your circumstances so we can inform you of your rights. Your first call is free.
In order to make a claim, you must be able to meet the following criteria:
- You were covered by compulsory Workers' compensation insurance at the time of your injury in, or to-and-from the workplace.
- Your injury was a result of immediate and present negligent work conditions that resulted in your injury (For example, your employer failing to meet his duty of care and leaving hazards in the workplace),
- Your injury was the result of long-term environment and circumstances that led to your injury (For example, your employer had refused to accommodate for a pre-existing medical issue you have that worsened and let to significant injury)
- The amount you are entitled to claim is highly dependent on the circumstances of your case and the extent of your injuries. We can offer a free consultation to discuss your work injury claim and determine your likelihood of a successful claim.
