Worker Accident Injury Compensation Claims

    Under the Workers’ Compensation Scheme, you may be entitled to benefits and compensation if you’ve suffered an injury in your workplace or contracted an illness through doing your job. Every Australian worker is covered by Workers’ Compensation insurance, which their employer is compelled by law to have in place.  You should feel a sense of safety, and that you’re protected from harm in your workplace. But in the unfortunate event that you are injured at work, or if you contract an illness that affects your physical or emotional health, or your finances and prevents you from doing your job, it can be devastating. That’s why the Workers’ Compensation Scheme exists, to help you recover and get back to work.  PK Simpson lawyers are Workers’ Compensation specialists, and we can help you make sense of all the changes in Legislation, and explain the process of making a claim to receive the benefits you deserve.

    For more than 35 years, PK Simpson lawyers have helped injured workers of NSW to make injury and accident claims to get the Workers’ Compensation benefits they are entitled to receive. We’ve successfully helped thousands of workers get their lives back on track. That’s one of our specialities!
