Under the Workers Compensation Scheme, you may be entitled to the following benefits if you’ve been injured or become ill at work:
All Victorian workers are covered by WorkCover.
Anybody who suffers a workplace injury, or an injury as a result of work, can make a claim for WorkCover compensation.
You should lodge a claim as soon as possible. Contact us to find out how.
Did you know any injury sustained at work needs to be reported to your employer within 30 days? Plus, a workers compensation claim needs to be lodged as soon as possible after your injury. How soon? Ideally within 30 days of becoming aware of it.
We have seen claims become complicated and even rejected due to the way workers have filled out the claim form. Seek advice from Menzies Legal as to how to complete your claim form before you give it to your employer if possible.
If it has been more than 30 days since you became aware of your injury, you should seek advice straight away. Make sure you speak to our experienced Workers Compensation lawyers.
Menzis legal can help with a variety of Workers Compensation issues. That’s because every claim is different.
We can help if:
No Win No Fee is generally available for all types of Workers Compensation claims.
This means you don’t pay our professional fees unless your case is successful.
If you win, we’ll charge you based on the work done on your file. This will be clearly explained before you retain us. Meaning no nasty surprises at the end.
Why do we offer No Win No Fee? We want to help people who might be unable to afford high-quality legal representation.
After your first appointment, you’ll receive a No Win No Fee Disclosure Statement and Costs Agreement. Clearly explaining how it works. You won’t be committed to anything until you sign and return the document. And we’ll ensure you have enough time to understand your options. Because it’s important to us that you’re happy with your decision.
You may incur additional costs throughout your case. For example, we may need access to your medical records. This usually attracts a fee. It’s called a ‘disbursement’.
During your first appointment, we’ll explain if additional costs are likely to arise throughout your case. Your lawyer will guide you through step by step. Ensuring you feel comfortable with proceeding.
Rest assured, we’ll do everything possible to minimise costs and maximise compensation.
If you are successful part of your legal costs (both our professional fees and disbursements) will be paid for by the workcover insurer.
