Workers compensation lawyers

Have you been injured or developed an illness at work? If so, you may be entitled to workers compensation and should see a workers comp lawyer.  

Everyone deserves to be safe at work, but sometimes, a worker may suffer an injury or illness at work which has devastating financial consequences. Injuries can occur when accidents happen such as slipping and falling at work but they can also occur through the nature and conditions of a worker’s employment, such as repetitive lifting. In the most serious cases, injuries can happen due to unsafe work environments or the negligence of an employer. 

If you have been injured or become sick at work, you may be entitled to injury compensation. The workers compensation system in NSW is complicated. Understanding your rights can be difficult and confusing. Lawpoint’s experienced workers compensation lawyers Sydney can help protect your rights and make a claim for the workers compensation you are entitled to including: 

  • Weekly payments of compensation for lost income due to your injury or illness; 
  • Payment of your medical and out of pocket expenses incurred due to your injury or illness;  
  • If you have suffered a permanent impairment as a result of your injury or illness, we can help you make a claim for lump-sum compensation for that permanent impairment; and 
  • In some cases, you might be able to sue an employer for negligence that caused your injury or illness. These types of claims permit injured workers to sue for further lump sum compensation, which can be significant. 

Our expert workers compensation lawyers can also help you challenge decisions made by insurance companies to refuse or stop payments of compensation. 

What happens if I have a permanent impairment?

If your injury or illness has resulted in permanent impairment, you may be able to make a claim for lump sum compensation arising from what is known as your “whole person impairment”. 

The degree of whole person impairment is assessed by an approved specialist who is trained to make assessments under the Workcover Guides to the Evaluation of Permanent Impairment. Lump sum compensation is payable depending on the degree of your impairment.
