In NSW, most injured workers are limited to a claim for past and future economic loss only. This means that an injured worker can only claim for loss of income and earnings capacity, alongside superannuation that would have otherwise accrued and annual leave loading.
In order to be eligible to bring a work injury damages claim, your work injury must have an agreed or determined whole person impairment of at least 15 per cent. You must also be able to establish that your injury was caused as a result of the negligence of your employer.
In NSW, most work injury damages claims undergo a compulsory pre-litigation process which culminates in a compulsory mediation in the Personal Injury Commission. It is only when a claim is
unable to resolve at mediation, that the matter may proceed to Court. Work injury damages claims are complex matters that require expert preparation, care skill and
diligence. At Walker Law Group, we act for injured workers in these claims on a no win no fee basis.
