Work Injury Damages Claims

If you have been hurt on the job due to your employer’s or a colleague’s negligence, you may be entitled to work injury damages compensation. This is also known as a ‘modified common law’ claim.

In a work injury damages claim, an injured worker claims compensation for past and future loss of earnings and superannuation that has been caused by the accident.

In order to be eligible for work injury damages compensation, your whole person impairment has to be assessed at 15% or greater and must be agreed by the insurer or you have been assessed by an AMS (Approved Medical Specialist).

Our specialist workers compensation lawyers will advise you on your eligibility for work injury damages compensation, if the act or omission that caused your injury was negligent, and the affect that such a claim will have on your other workers compensation entitlements.

A work injury damages claim is usually brought after a lump sum / impairment compensation claim.

There is generally a strict deadline to bring such a work injury damages claim. It is therefore important to seek expert legal advice as soon as possible after sustaining an injury at work.

I could write a book as to how the last 4 years would have been different if not for Tom and his team.
The support, assistance, advice from the first conversation till even after the settlement was second to none from the team at Stacks Goudkamp.
Four years on and after many downs, my children and I have our lives back.
We are unable to THANK YOU enough, but know that you have changed our lives for the better in so many ways since the accident.
