We focus on:
Our senior compensation lawyers have assisted injured workers by helping them claim workers compensation for injuries sustained, regardless of fault, in the course of employment by way of weekly payments, medical expenses and lump sum. Workers compensation is payable regardless whether your injury was in Western Sydney, Southern Sydney or Sydney CBD. 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.
Being injured in a motor vehicle accident can limit your daily and working life and may cause financial hardship for the rest of your life. You may be entitled to get compensation for medical expenses, economic loss and pain and suffering after being injured in a motor accident. That is regardless whether the accident was caused whilst as a pedestrian or on a motor bike, bicycle or whether you were a passenger or driver in a truck or forklift. Our experienced motor accident compensation lawyers can assist you to maximise your compensation payout for you to continue your life knowing that you have received the best advice and maximum compensation amount payable for your claim.
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. You receive public liability compensation benefits for your injuries. Our compensation lawyers can tell you where you stand and advise you clearly on the whole process to take care of your claim. 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.
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.
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 medical negligence 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.
Frequently Asked Questions
The duration depends on the claim and the law that applies. Generally, our compensation lawyers settle our clients’ claims in 12-18 months unless they have had surgery which extends the time frame or the matter needs to proceed to court.
We would recommend you at least ask our compensation lawyers:
- Whether you are entitled to compensation benefits or not
- What your entitlements are regarding your injury compensation claim
- What time limits apply for your compensation claim
- What the costs and disbursements are for legal service
- The estimated time it will take to settle your compensation claim
At Withstand Lawyers our clients do not pay for our costs upfront for their compensation claims. Our team of compensation lawyers also funds the disbursements required in order to obtain the evidence required and deducts its costs from our injured clients’ settlement monies only when they are successfully awarded compensation. We provide a No Win No Fee cost agreement that clearly outlines our policy along with simply understandable details. We work hard to ensure you clearly understand our costs and the legal process.
It is never too early to know where you legally stand. Our experienced compensation lawyers based in Sydney can advise you from beginning to end. Assessing your situation in certain respects is crucial before making any compensation claim. Having advice that is tailored to your specific situation, such as the seriousness of your injury, your employer’s liability, your age and whether you are an “exempt worker” will determine the extent of benefits that you may be entitled to. Our senior compensation lawyers in Sydney can guide you through the whole process of making a claim, providing critical information on what you can claim and how to claim it.
Withstand Lawyers work on a No Win No Fee basis. That means our compensation lawyers do not charge you for legal costs or disbursements if your claim is unsuccessful and you do not receive compensation benefits. That gives you confidence in situations where you might think that you have too much to lose by making a claim for compensation even when you have sustained injury as a result.
Each state has its own law, and in New South Wales different time limits apply depending on the type of claim. It is always recommended to reach an experienced compensation lawyer to get legal assistance. However, you must lodge the relevant form for motor vehicle accident claims, within 28 days. The time limit for workers compensation claims is 6 months from the date of injury. Another important time limit is commencing court proceedings which have 3 years of the time limit from the date of injury that limit may be extended in some circumstances.
Once you meet our compensation lawyers in Sydney, we will:
- Listen carefully to your situation and make sure you fully understand your entitlements and how to claim them.
- Obtain all the relevant documents required to support your claim and maximise your compensation entitlements.
- Negotiate with the other side to settle or resolve your claim for the best result whilst keeping you informed and updated.
