If you have been injured or contracted an illness at work, you may be entitled to a range of benefits and compensation under the Workers Compensation Scheme. Blissenden Lawyers can help.
Our Workers Compensation claims lawyers have the experience and knowledge in handling a wide range of Workers Compensation Claims and provide simple and clear communication, so you know where you stand.
Workers’ Compensation Laws can be complex and difficult to understand, so you need to obtain the best advice about your rights and entitlements.
The insurer will assess your Workers Compensation Claim, however they will not provide you with independent legal advice and may not pay your full compensation entitlements. Blissenden Lawyers will work with you to get what is fair and right and ensure that you know:
- if the Workers Compensation insurer has correctly assessed your entitlement
- if you are able to dispute the Workers Compensation insurer's decision
- what evidence you need to maximise your entitlements and how to go about getting it.
Blissenden Lawyers can represent you at the Workers’ Rehabilitation and Compensation Tribunal when there is a dispute about Workers’ Compensation payments.
If serious injury has been suffered, you may also be able to pursue a Common Law claim if that injury has been caused by the negligence of your employer or a fellow worker. Blissenden Lawyers will advise you if this is the case.
