Did you get any injury in the office or on a job site recently? If your answer is yes, now is the time to complete your workers compensation claim.
As a NSW resident, you are entitled to compensation for lost wages, medical, hospital and rehabilitation treatment, return to work assistance and, in certain cases, compensation for non-economic loss. All workers in NSW are covered for work-related injuries and illnesses under state legislation, even if their employer is uninsured.
It’s compulsory for most employers in NSW to hold a workers insurance policy. If an employer doesn’t hold a valid workers insurance policy, employees can notify a claim through the uninsured liability scheme, which is managed by icare.
The NSW workers compensation system provides support to people injured at work, including assistance with recovering and returning to work wherever possible.
Why do you need an attorney for your workers compensation claim?
Work related injuries can range from minor to major injuries with varying times of healing and some that never do. Going through compensation claims for workers in NSW can be a complex process, including denial of claims, low settlement offers, and delayed payments. That’s why it’s important to engage the right workers compensation lawyer to assist you with your claim. If you’ve recently been injured a claim must also be filed within 28 days of the injury or you will not be eligible to proceed with the compensation.
Depending on the severity of your injury and complexity of your case, you are entitled to engage legal advice and a good attorney will be upfront and honest whether or not you have a successful workers compensation claim or not.
