Have you sustained a workplace injury or contracted an illness at work? We are highly skilled WorkCover lawyers. For more information about the process of claiming workers compensation in Victoria, click here.
Did a health care provider cause an injury while you were in their care? Or are you a dependent of someone who has died as a result of medical malpractice? The negligence could be from any medical or allied health practitioner including a hospital, doctor (GP), specialist, physiotherapist, dentist, chiropractor and others.
Were you injured in a road accident or traffic collision in Victoria? TAC compensation is available for people injured in Victoria.
Learn more about motor vehicle accident compensation (TAC claims) here.
If you’ve been injured or are a dependent of someone who has died as a result of the negligence of another person, you may be entitled to compensation.
These types of claims are often referred to as “slip and fall” claims but they also cover a range of incidents including supermarket falls, carpark injuries, playground injuries etc.

Most working Australians have superannuation and many of them have insurance benefits within those funds. If you’re unable to work because of injury or illness (including mental illness), you may be covered under your superannuation fund. Superannuation TPD claims (and income protection claims) are separate to workers compensation or motor vehicle accident claims.
Importantly, your injury or illness does not need to have any relationship to your work.
You can read more about superannuation TPD and income protection claims here.
Claims for asbestosis and other dust diseases can be complicated. We primarily work with clients who have been exposed to asbestos in the UK and now live in Australia.
We work closely with law firms in the UK to assist clients now living in Australia.

When you contact us, you’ll speak directly with a lawyer.
Step 2: Ask specific and clear questions
When we speak with you on the phone we will ask some questions about when and where your accident occurred, what injuries you have suffered and what medical treatment you have received.
If you then want to schedule an appointment we can put that into place.
Step 3: Appointment – We understand that a lot of your time is spent going to medical appointments, doing rehab or simply resting and that you need to focus on your recovery.
That’s exactly where your focus should be.
We know that not being well enough to work or travel is frustrating so we can make the process easier.
You may just not want to sit in Melbourne traffic.
If you cannot come to our office in Black Rock we can make a home visit or we can schedule an online meeting using video chat.
We look after clients from all over metropolitan Melbourne and in country Victoria so distance is simply not an issue for us.
We make regular visits to Bacchus Marsh and Ballarat in particular and can schedule meetings after hours and at weekends.
Step 4: First Meeting:
Your first meeting with us will be with Kiera Menzies who is the Principal Lawyer at Menzies Legal.
Kiera is an experienced personal injury lawyer with in excess of 20 years experience in personal injury law.
Kiera will listen to your story and ask some more detailed questions about how you were injured, learn more about how the injury has affected your everyday life and what medical treatment you have had.
Kiera will then explain what options you may have going forward and explain how legal costs work.
Prior to meeting with Kiera, we ask that you complete our online questionnaire which will mean we can concentrate on the issues which are most important at our meeting.
If after the meeting you do not want to retain Menzies Legal there will be no charge for the appointment.
We will send/email some paperwork to you for signing and then get your claim underway.
You can continue to concentrate on your recovery and let us deal with the insurers and form filling.
