Our personal injury lawyers at Stacks Goudkamp are proud to be able to support current and former NSW Police officers who have suffered the physical and emotional consequences of their loyal service.
We provide support in the following areas:
Police officers are protected from the significant limitations imposed by the NSW Government in 2012, and have long term entitlements to weekly compensation, medical support and lump sum payments for permanent impairment and pain and suffering.
Significant injuries, leading to medical retirement or permanent restriction of duties, may give rise to an entitlement to claim damages. We provide expert advice on these entitlements and have pursued damages claims where appropriate.
We provide expert advice on superannuation entitlements resulting from the changeover from Metlife to TAL as the insurer for First State Super.
Under the current arrangements Police officers who are unable to work for extended periods of time have an entitlement to salary continuance, in addition to workers compensation payments, through TAL.
In addition, Police officers who suffer injuries, whether physical or psychological, which prevent them from returning to work, have entitlements to total and permanent disability benefits through FSS and its insurers Metlife and/or TAL.
We have an experienced team who are able to navigate the often difficult channel to a successful conclusion of these claims.
