Frequently Asked Questions
Why should I hire a compensation lawyer?
A compensation lawyer can assess your situation from different angles and offer tailored advice on what benefits could be achieved. An expert lawyer can also break down the claim making procedures for you and clarify your mind on what needs to be done. Also, sometimes it may not be possible to reach a settlement with the insurer, or your claim can be rejected by them on certain grounds. Our compensation lawyers based in Penrith will lead you if disputes arise with the insurer.
How can I make a claim in Penrith?
Compensation claims should usually be made in certain time limits, therefore it is best you start claiming process as soon as possible. After being injured, try to seek medical advice immediately, so that you can get the medical proof of your injury. If applicable, you should support your claim with evidence of the accident and submit it together with the claim form.
How much does a compensation lawyer charge?
Our expert lawyers work on a no win no fee basis, which means you do not have to pay legal fees unless your claim is achieved. Also, in NSW all legal fees deriving from workers compensation claims are covered by WIRO (Workers Compensation Independent Review Office) regardless of the success of your claim.
