How Australia Lawyers
Can Help You Today
If you have been injured at work, on your way to or from work or while undertaking work activities outside your usual work environment, it’s likely that you will be entitled to compensation. At Australia Lawyers, we commonly assist people who have suffered physical, psychological injuries and/or workplace bullying.
The most substantial compensation recoverable for people injured at work in Western Australia requires proof that your employer was negligent and consequently because of such negligence you sustained injury. Any compensation payable due to a successful claim is not paid by your employer, but rather your employer’s insurance company.
To find out more, simply make a time to speak to one of our Perth Workers Compensation Lawyers.
A workers compensation claim is instigated by you filling out a claim form and certificate of capacity. Once completed you must provide these forms to your employer. However, you can always talk to our team of Workers Compensation Lawyers Perth if you have any questions about the completion of those forms. Also, strict time limits may apply to these matters.
In the event that your injury sustained at work is determined by medical opinion as being at least 15% of the permanent whole of person impairment, it’s likely that you will be able to initiate a common law claim. Such a claim is dependent upon proving that your employer was negligent and because of this, you sustained the relevant injuries.
It’s very important that you seek legal advice following a workplace injury to ensure that no stone is left unturned. People injured at work can make the mistake of assuming they’re not eligible for a common law claim and consequently end up not receiving potentially hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Importantly if you have been injured at work, do not go it alone. Very strict time limits and protocols apply in these matters. Missing one of these can jeopardize your claim.
