Workers Fatal Accident Compensation Claims
Whilst work place safety is continually improving, tragically accidents at work continue to claim lives across NSW every year.
Our compassionate workers compensation specialists understand that no amount of damages can compensate you for the loss of your loved one. However losing a loved one’s income can place additional stresses on you at an already difficult time. It is therefore important to seek expert legal advice as soon as possible after a fatal workplace accident so that your rights are protected.
When a worker dies as a result of a work place accident, a claim can be brought against their employer’s workers compensation insurer for funeral expenses, a lump sum payment, and weekly payments for dependent children. It is therefore particularly important to speak to a specialist workers compensation lawyer when minor children have been left behind.
We will treat you with compassion and professionalism at all times, and take away the stress of dealing with insurance companies so that you have the time to grieve and deal with the other racticalities after losing a loved one.

We successfully claimed statutory lump sum entitlements under the Workers Compensation Act and weekly payments for his children. We are now pursuing rights for damages for the family under the Compensation to Relatives Act.
