Following the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sex Abuse, the importance of a survivor’s right to appropriate compensation was recognised in every state and territory in Australia.
Changes in laws governing the ability of survivors of child sexual (and serious physical) abuse to seek compensation for their very significant injuries mean that every survivor now needs to get the right legal advice from our child abuse lawyers about making a claim for the compensation they deserve, no matter how long ago the abuse occurred.
Worker's compensation is aimed at supporting workers who are injured (physical and psychological injuries), aggravate an existing condition, or otherwise become ill (e.g., dust diseases) while performing their work duties.
Every Australian worker should be covered by worker's compensation in the event of workplace injury.
Our highly experienced lawyers can assist you with claims in the state-based worker's compensation schemes of Queensland and the Northern Territory and also the federal scheme, Comcare.
Our primary focus is on you, the injured worker, and maximum any compensation you're entitled to.
If you have an injury or illness that is preventing you from working, you may be able to claim insurance entitlements that can provide you with a lump sum payment or cover most of your lost wages. This insurance may be held inside your super fund(s) or outside super in personal insurance policies.
Most Australian workers will have TPD insurance, often inside their super, and some will also have Income Protection insurance.
We’ve helped many Australians claim benefits through their insurance policies. Having an experienced lawyer on your side, looking after your interests, can usually be the difference between a successful and unsuccessful claim.
