Speak with a Senior Workplace Injury Lawyer.

Our Melbourne-based Workers Compensation Principals are all Accredited Specialists of the Law Institute of Victoria. The first consultation is always free and you’ll never incur any costs without explicit agreement.

You may also need to consider:

A potential return to work date and plan.

Decisions regarding your capacity to return to work should be guided by your treating doctor.
Your doctor should regularly assess your capacity to work and provide up to date Certificates of Capacity to the WorkCover insurer.

This will include your capacity to return to work as well as your ability to participate in any return to work plans.

Only once your treating doctor has stated that you are able to return to work on full or modified duties should you return to work.

An additional claim through your Super & TPD insurance

If you have a superannuation policy that includes cover for workplace injuries, you may be entitled to additional compensation.

Update your will

After a workplace injury event, it can be wise to update your will (or draft your first will). Our Wills team can offer you a complimentary review of your will. Bring it your first appointment or use our online tool and have it reviewed by a lawyer.
