How We Can Help You

Comcare Compensation Claims

If you work for an employer who is subject to the Comcare scheme or the self-insured Comcare scheme and have been injured at work, you may be entitled to compensation. Below are only some of the entitlements that you may be entitled to after a successful compensation claim:

  • Medical and rehabilitation expenses
  • Compensation for lost wages if you’re unable to work due to your injury or illness
  • Lump-sum compensation for permanent impairment
  • Death benefits to dependents in the case of a fatal injury

Aside from the above, we can also vigorously pursue your case through the Administrative Appeals Tribunal for any decision regarding liability. 

If you work for a company that is subject to the Comcare Scheme and have sustained injury at work, contact us to know your options. We’ll  guide you through the complex process of Comcare compensation claims.

Seacare Compensation Claims

Seacare (Seafarers) Compensation is a type of workers compensation for Seafarers who are injured in a work-related injury on board a vessel or on the way to work or at training. 

Seacare compensation is generally a no-fault jurisdiction, which means that you may be entitled to compensation regardless of who caused the injury, unless there was serious and willful misconduct. Seacare compensation may include:

  • Weekly benefits for loss of income due to incapacity for work
  • Medical treatment and rehabilitation expenses
  • Permanent impairment lump sum compensation for any permanent disability or disfigurement caused by the injury
  • Death benefits for the dependents of a seafarer who dies as a result of a work-related injury

If you are unsure whether you have a claim, you contact us for a free initial consultation. We are experienced in handling seafarer workers compensation matters in Australia and all around the world.
