If you have suffered an injury as a result of a workplace accident, you may be eligible to make one or several types of workers compensation claims. It can be confusing to understand the difference between these types of compensation, and that is where we can assist.

Lionheart Lawyers will assess your case with great care and attention and identify all claims you may be eligible to make.

For instance, you may be eligible to claim what is known as a ‘work injury damages’ claim if your injury resulted from your employer’s negligence. Eligibility will also depend on your injuries and other factors.

Lodging a work injury damages claim is a complex process and our expert lawyers are here to guide you through every step to help you obtain the compensation you are entitled to.

Claiming Damages for Workplace Accident or Injury

Lionheart Lawyers have more than 50 years of combined experience successfully claiming damages for workplace accidents or injuries on behalf of our clients.

To claim work injury damages in NSW, your claim must meet several criteria, including:

  • Your work injury must be the result of employer negligence;
  • You must have at least 15 per cent permanent whole person impairment;
  • You have received all statutory lump sum entitlements for permanent impairment that you are entitled to.

Sometimes, work injury damages claims may result in court proceedings. If your claim ends up in court, rest assured that our lawyers are expertly equipped to fight for you and pursue the compensation you deserve.

Court proceedings must begin within three years of the injury date, unless you have the court’s approval, so it is important that you contact us as quickly as possible after your accident to lodge your work injury damages claim.

Legal Advice for Work Related Injury Compensation

If you have suffered an injury at work, whether physical or psychological, you should report it to your employer immediately.

Your next step should be to contact Lionheart Lawyers for a free initial consultation. We will tailor our advice to your personal circumstances and advise how you can claim for the compensation you deserve.

We can also help you to dispute a previously denied claim or advise you on any time constraints for pursuing your claim.

When you choose Lionheart Lawyers, we will work with you to gather and lodge all the necessary documentation required for a successful work injury claim.

Claiming Compensation for Harassment or Abuse at Work

If you have suffered physical or psychological injury or illness as a result of harassment or abuse in the workplace, you could be eligible to claim for workers compensation for lost wages and/or treatment expenses.

You may also be entitled to lump-sum compensation provided that certain medical impairment thresholds are met.

We know how stressful it can be to deal with injury and face an uncertain future at work. Let us take some of the burden off you and your family and help you lodge your claim, manage the process from start to finish and ensure you obtain the compensation you deserve.
