Struggling After a Workplace Injury? You’re Not Alone

Everyone has the right to go to work each day, knowing they’ll come home safely. In Australia, all employers are required to hold this form of insurance to protect their workforce from accidents and injuries. Your unique situation deserves personalised attention and that's exactly what you'll find at State Law Group.

Physical Injuries

Physical injuries are the most visible and immediate reasons for seeking a workers compensation lawyer. These can range from slips and falls, machinery accidents, to vehicle collisions while on the job leading to broken bones, lacerations, burns, and other injuries sustained in accidents or due to unsafe working conditions.

Mental Health Issues

Mental health issues, such as anxiety, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), are considered psychological injuries that can arise from workplace conditions. These issues may result from traumatic events, chronic stress, or workplace harassment and can be just as debilitating as physical injuries.

Long-Term Illnesses

Long-term illnesses, such as chronic respiratory diseases, occupational diseases, or cancers resulting from prolonged exposure to hazardous materials, can be grounds for a workers compensation claim if they are considered a work-related injury. These cases often require extensive medical evidence and expert testimony.

Permanent Disabilities

Permanent disabilities, whether physical or mental, can severely impact an employee’s ability to work and their quality of life. Workers compensation lawyers help secure long-term benefits, including disability benefits, and support for these individuals.

Common Challenges

Navigating Your Workers Compensation Claim Alone is Risky

At State Law Group, we've seen it all: claims denied due to technicalities, inadequate settlements that barely cover medical expenses, and employers disputing the legitimacy of injuries. These issues can leave you feeling frustrated and powerless. That's where we come in – to fight for your rights and ensure you get the compensation you deserve.

Complex Cases

While some workers' compensation claims are straightforward, others are more complex and require legal expertise. Cases involving severe injuries, long-term disabilities, or disputes over benefits often necessitate hiring an experienced lawyer.

Denied Claims

When your workers compensation claim is rejected, it can be a frustrating obstacle in getting the support you need. Our lawyers are adept at compiling compelling evidence to counteract denial reasons and proficiently contesting claims on behalf of one’s case, especially when dealing with a workers compensation insurer. Should there be a necessity for an appeal, we also facilitate the appeal process through relevant bodies such as NSW’s Personal Injury Commission.

Delayed Payments

The postponement of payments can lead to financial strain and hinder the healing journey following a personal injury. Such hold-ups often stem from administrative pileups, questioning of claim validity, or debates around the seriousness of injuries. We can help combat payment delays and secure the financial compensation needed on your road to recovery.

Employer Retaliation

Retaliation by an employer, which may manifest as harassment, demotion or even job termination following the filing of a workers compensation claim, is against the law. Such retaliatory behaviour can exacerbate stress and contribute to an unwelcoming atmosphere for employees recuperating from injuries sustained at work. Remember to record precise documentation regarding any acts of retaliation to bolster your case should you opt for legal action against your employer.

What can i claim for?

Maximise Your Compensation with State Law Group

Benefits may include medical expenses, weekly payments for lost wages, lump sum compensation for permanent impairment, and rehabilitation services. Each case is unique, and our expert Workers Compensation lawyers will work to ensure you receive all entitled compensation benefits.

Income Replacement

Payments for lost wages while you are unable to work due to your injury or illness. These benefits are typically a percentage of your average weekly wage, provided as weekly payments.

Permanent Disability Benefits

If your injury or illness results in a permanent disability, you may be entitled to permanent disability benefits. The amount and duration of these benefits depend on the severity of the disability and your ability to work.

Lump Sum Compensation

If you have a permanent impairment as a result of a workplace injury or illness, you may be entitled to receive a lump sum payment as compensation. This is in addition to weekly payments and medical related expenses.

Medical & Hospital Expenses

Workers' compensation covers all necessary medical treatment related to your injury or illness. This includes doctor's visits, hospital stays, surgeries, medications, and rehabilitation services.

Rehabilitation Services

If you are unable to return to your previous job due to your injury, vocational rehabilitation services can help you retrain for a new job. These services may include job training, resume assistance, and job placement support.

Death Compensation

In the unfortunate event of a work-related death, the workers compensation scheme provides death benefits to the deceased worker’s dependents. These benefits typically cover funeral expenses and provide financial support to surviving family members.

How it works

Navigating The Workers Compensation Claim Process

The Workers Compensation claims process can seem complex and daunting. That's why we're here to simplify each step for you, from the initial consultation to the final settlement.

Reporting The Injury

1

The first step in the Workers Compensation process is to report the injury to your employer as soon as possible. Most states have strict deadlines for reporting work-related injuries.

Seeking Medical Treatment

2

Prompt medical treatment is crucial for your health and for medical documentation of your injury and medical expenses. Make sure to follow your employer’s guidelines for seeking medical care.

Filing a Claim

3

After reporting the injury and seeking medical treatment, the next step is to file a workers compensation claim form with your employer’s insurance company. This involves completing necessary forms and providing supporting documentation.

Claim Review & Decision

4

The insurance company will review the claim and make a claim decision to either approve or deny it. If approved, you will start receiving benefits. If denied, you have the right to appeal the decision.

Appealing a Denied Claim

5

If your claim is denied, a Workers Compensation lawyer can help you appeal the decision. This may involve gathering additional evidence, filing appeal paperwork, and representing you in hearings.

The Dangers of Not Seeking Legal Advice

Without professional legal support, you risk missing critical deadlines, submitting incomplete claims, and receiving inadequate compensation. The financial strain, ongoing medical expenses, and potential loss of employment can have devastating effects on your life and your family’s well-being.
