If you have been injured at work then you should be entitled to receive compensation. Most workers in Queensland are insured by WorkCover Queensland. Employees of large companies, such as Qantas, Toll or Woolworths, are often covered by insurance companies set up by the employer.

If you have been injured at work and have not yet lodged a workers’ compensation claim we can assist you to do so. That can help to avoid your claim being rejected by the workers’ compensation insurer. If your claim has already been rejected then we may be able to assist you to appeal that decision.

If you have been injured because of something that your employer (or another employee) has done wrong then we may be able to assist you to bring a negligence claim for your injury. A successful negligence claim will often result in you being entitled to significantly more compensation than you might otherwise receive.

If you have been offered a payout by your workers’ compensation insurer then you should contact us for advice before making a decision about the offer. Often accepting such an offer can stop you from being able to bring a negligence claim for your injury so it is important that you seek legal advice about any offer that has been made to you.

There are strict time limits that apply to workers’ compensation claims. Recent changes to the workers’ compensation laws in Queensland mean that the time limits that apply to your claim can depend upon the date on which you were injured or first sought medical treatment. This means that if you have been injured it is essential that you seek legal advice as soon as possible because delaying, or failing to seek advice, could cause you to be unable to be properly compensated for your injury.

We can provide you with obligation free advice and do not charge for an initial consult. If you have a claim that we can help with we will provide you with an up-front, fixed fee quote that has no hidden charges. All of the work we do is on a no-win no-fee basis.

Unfortunately the law in Queensland places restrictions on what information we are able to publish on this website. If you would like to discuss how the law might apply to your circumstances, please contact us on (07) 4049 2865 or send us an email at office@fnqlegal.com.au with your questions and contact details.
