FAQs

 
Are all types of employees covered for work related injuries and illnesses?

Yes, all employees are covered i.e., full-time, part-time and casual employees. Workers Compensation insurance covers all employees for every injury or illness that can occur at work.

How much will I be charged for assistance in a Workers Compensation matter?

In New South Wales, all workers compensation claims are funded by the government through a body called the Independent Review Office (IRO). This means that you will not receive a bill from us for the work that we do on your workers compensation claim. All our fees are paid by IRO.

Are there any time limits involved in Motor Vehicle Accident claims?

Yes, there are time limits on when you are required to have lodged your claim.  You should notify the Compulsory Third Party (CTP) insurer as soon as possible, but no later than six months from the date of the accident. Your claim could be affected if the insurer receives your claim more than six months after the accident.

What option are available to me if as a result of my injury or illness I can never return to work?

If you have suffered injury or illness and can no longer do the work you once could, you may be entitled to a Total and Permanent Disability (TPD) insurance benefit through your superannuation.

A TPD claim entitles you to payment of a lump sum if you have suffered an injury or illness that prevents you from returning to work in the same capacity.

A benefit payment can fund current and future medical costs, clear any debts that may have accrued and provides you with a source of income to help restore your quality of life as far as possible.

To discuss your eligibility and to answer any questions in relation to TPD claims, please contact our office.
