That is because the law is the same wherever you are injured as long as it is in NSW. Working with a senior workers compensation lawyer will help you understand your entitlements, get the maximum compensation payable and provide you with the best advice.

Unable to work due to injury or illness regardless of the cause? You may be eligible to receive a lump sum payment under your Total and Permanent Disablement (TPD) superannuation policy. Unfortunately a lot of people are not aware of that entitlement within their superannuation policy. Whilst the amounts can be significantly less or significantly more, the usual amount one receives from a successful TPD claim is anywhere between $35,000 – $350,000. This is payable, depending on the policy, when you can establish that you are unable to work in your usual or any other occupation. Our experienced compensation lawyers based in Sydney can assist you to get the maximum possible TPD claim payout.
You are entitled to claim compensation for your injuries whether you slip in a public or private property or whether your injury was as a result of the public or property owners negligence.

The Sydney team at Withstand Lawyers works on No Win No Fee basis, meaning that you do not pay for our legal costs and disbursements unless you win.
Unfortunately not all procedures or advice by doctors or healthcare providers are correct and successful. If your doctor or healthcare provider provided you with negligent advice or performed a negligent procedure, you may be eligible to claim compensation as a result. We can obtain peer medical opinions, provide you with advice, clarity and peace of mind and claim the maximum compensation to help you move forward
Claims for lump sum compensation for injuries are based your permanent impairment. In order to receive compensation by way of a lump sum, your physical injuries need to be 11% whole person impairment or greater. If you have primary psychological injuries, 15% is the limit to claim lump sum compensation. You are not entitled to receive permanent impairment compensation for secondary psychological injuries.
If your injuries are assessed at 15% whole person impairment or greater and the injuries were as a result of your employers’ negligence, you may be able to make a work injury damages claim. A work injury damages claim allows for you to claim your future loss of earnings until the age of retirement by way of a lump sum payment. That means that the insurer would essentially pay an advanced amount based on your capacity to work and your pre accident wages until the age of retirement. Sometimes it may not be the best decision to settle a work injury damages claim because your medical expenses would no longer be covered by the insurance company.
Workers compensation arises out of an injury and/or illness as a result of an injury in the course of employment. This means that you are either physically in pain and/or psychologically suffering. Let us simplify the legal process to you simply and in an easy to understand way.
