IRO Funded Lawyers

In Sydney, there are several instances in which our workers compensation lawyer can seek IRO funding. Some of these include:

  • You sustained an injury at work and need help filing a claim or need other legal guidance
  • Your insurance company is disputing your claim 
  • You want a lump sum payment for your injury
  • Your insurer is refusing to pay for a medical treatment prescribed by a doctor
  • You need to dispute the weekly compensation your insurer is providing

How IRO Funding Works

The IRO operates under a presumption in favour of funding. They typically grant funding in four separate stages. Keep reading to learn more. 

Stage 1: Preliminary Legal Advice Funding

In this stage, the IRO will provide you with funding to receive early legal advice about a potential or existing claim or dispute. This will allow our NSW workmen comp lawyers to complete a worker’s injury claim form on your behalf and follow up with your insurer and doctors. 

Stage 2: Investigations and Claims 

Once we file a claim, you may be eligible for Stage 2 funding. This funding enables our Sydney workmen compensation lawyers to conduct further investigations. This can include obtaining medical evidence and making reasonable attempts to reach an early resolution.

Stage 3: Proceedings in the Personal Injury Commission 

If IRO believes that the worker has an arguable case and has made reasonable attempts to resolve the workman comp claim or dispute, it will grant Stage 3 funding. This allows us to bring the matter to the Workers’ Compensation Committee in NSW, which will determine the case’s outcome. The IRO will only grant Stage 3 funding if the dispute concerns more than $3,000, there is financial hardship, or if it is in the public’s best interest.

Stage 4: Appeals and Reconsiderations 

In some cases, you may need to appeal the commission’s decision. In that case, the IRO may authorize additional funding for representation by a barrister to appeal the decision.

Workers Compensation Lawyers NSW - Frequently Asked Questions

What is Workers Compensation?

Worker’s compensation is a form of insurance that almost every business in NSW is required to hold. This insurance provides a financial indemnity for an injured worker, who has been injured or fallen ill as a result of their employment.

If you’re searching for dependable workers comp lawyers in Sydney then make Care Lawyers your first choice. We’re here to offer the legal advice and emotional support you need.

Do I need a solicitor to claim workers compensation?

In summary, whilst it is possible to file a workers compensation claim without the help of a professional lawyer, it is important to be aware of the potential risks to the outcome of your claim. Having an experienced workers compensation lawyer, such as one from our competent team at Care Lawyers, can prevent the opposing insurance company from using legal tactics to deny or reduce the compensation you receive.

The process of dealing with insurance companies and their lawyers can be difficult, but with the help of our legal team, we can ensure that you have the necessary knowledge and resources to navigate the process and have a fair chance at success.

How Will I Know If I Can Make Workers Compensation Claims In Sydney?

If you have been injured at work, or become ill as a result of your job, you may be entitled to Workers’ Compensation. This is a type of insurance that provides financial assistance and medical benefits to employees who are unable to work due to their injuries or illness.     

Several different criteria must be met to make a successful worker’s compensation claim in Sydney. First, you must be an employee of the company that you are making the claim against. Second, your injuries or illness must have been caused by your work duties or as a result of your working environment.

If you believe that you may be eligible to make a worker’s compensation claim in Sydney, the first step is to contact your employer and notify them of your work-related injury or illness. You should then obtain a worker’s compensation claim form from your employer, or the Worker’s Compensation authority in your state or territory.

Then, contact the team at Care Lawyers to learn how we can help you achieve the best outcome in your claim. We are truly the best workers compensation lawyers as our clients are always our main priority.

If You’ve Been Injured At Work, Or Between Job Sites, You May Be Eligible For Workers Compensation Benefits.

Workers’ compensation is a ‘no fault’ system in NSW. This means that, unless you have been guilty of misconduct, your entitlement to benefits will depend on whether your work-related injury arose out of your employment rather than who was at fault.

It helps to have experienced worker’s compensation solicitors from Sydney on your side. Our expert lawyers can provide you with advice as to whether or not you are eligible for worker’s compensation benefits.

What Can I Claim Workers Compensation For?

To understand your options and eligibility for a claim, our workman compensation lawyers are here to help.

If you’ve been injured at work, you may be eligible for the following benefits:

  • payments for loss of income;
  • medical, hospital, and rehabilitation or other medical expenses;
  • lump-sum compensation for permanent impairment;
  • travel expenses;
  • common law damages (also known as work injury damages); and
  • property damage expenses.

In the days and weeks following the incident, you must get dependable and helpful legal advice.

So for legal advice from a team you can trust, our workers comp lawyers are here to help.

There are a variety of unforeseen outcomes from a workplace accident that could lead you to be eligible for compensation.

Sometimes they are short-term and manageable to deal with after the event. However, some have a much longer lifetime impact. Our list below of examples are just some of the factors which contribute to being eligible for Work Injury compensation.

We always take into account the ongoing potential impact the incident may have on you or your loved one, as you’re unique and so is your situation. It might be the inability to resume study, travel or your normal day-to-day routine. You may also be dealing with new physical or psychological trauma, or struggling financially following the effects of the incident.

A work injury damages claim allows you to finalise your workers compensation claim with the insurer and claim for past and future loss of earning capacity.

It is important to remember that once a work injury damages claim is finalised, you lose your entitlements to:

  • Medical expenses and hospital stays
  • Psychological or physical rehabilitation and therapy
  • Needing a carer, in-home nurse or ongoing support to get around.
