Comcare – Workers Compensation

19 Aug 17

Comcare Workers Comp

Comcare workers compensation refers to the specific federal workers compensation scheme that governs commonwealth employees and certain licensed businesses/self-insurers around the country. The Comcare scheme is subject to the Safety, Rehabilitation and Compensation Act 1988.

No win no fee. 

If you are injured in a work-related injury, you may have an entitlement to workers compensation. Comcare workers compensation is generally a no-fault system, which means that in the absence of serious and wilful misconduct, if you are injured whilst on the clock, you may be entitled to compensation.

If you are unsure whether you have a claim, call us today on (02) 9191 7319 to find out.

Suffering an injury can be devastating for you and your family. Our solicitors can guide you through the complexities of the law and assist you with your claim for:

  • Weekly benefits
  • Medical and rehabilitation treatment
  • Household and domestic assistance
  • Access to artificial limbs and/or hearing aids
  • Permanent impairment lump sum

In order to claim a lump sum for any permanent impairment you may have suffered, as a result of your workplace injury, it is likely that you will be required to attend a medical examination by a medical specialist who will determine your level of whole personal impairment.

In order to claim permanent impairment lump sum compensation, you will need to be assessed by an accredited medical examiner as suffering 10% whole person impairment or more.

Contact one of our experienced lawyers who can assist and advise you today on a claim for permanent impairment lump sum compensation.

Our experienced workers compensation lawyers can assist and advise when:

  • The insurer has declined your claim or part of your claim
  • Access to weekly benefits or medical treatment is disputed by the insurer
  • You want to be assessed for permanent impairment lump sum entitlements
  • You wish to explore a claim for negligence against your employer or a third party, and more.

Strict time limits apply. Contact us today on (02) 9191 7319 to see how we can help and to discuss our No Win No Fee option.
