Workers Compensation QLD - Taylors Solicitors
Under the Work Compensation QLD scheme, you have the right to sue your employer for negligence
through a common law or damages claim.
Taylors Solicitors can help you find out if the employer has been negligent, and file a claim so you
can be properly compensated for your future economic loss as well as your pain and suffering.
Meanwhile, Work Cover will defend the claim on behalf of the employer, keeping them updated and
involved through the process. Your employer may try to resolve the claim with you, which is part of
the pre-court process and set out in the legislation. The pre-court process can be informal as it aims
to provide cost-effective solution for all parties. In case you don’t agree with the pre-court
settlement, we will enter into a formal process known as a compulsory settlement conference.
If we can’t achieve resolution during the pre-court process, Taylors Solicitors will provide you with a
lawyer who has expertise and experience in the workers compensation qld scheme. The average
common law claim may take around a year to arrive into a resolution. However, if the claim
proceeds to formal litigation, the process may even take longer.
Degree of Permanent Impairment: Workers Compensation Qld Scheme
It is crucial to take note that for injuries sustained between 15 October 2013 to 30 January 2015, the
worker must have greater than 5 per cent degree of permanent impairment to be able to pursue a
common law claim. You can still consult Taylors Solicitors if you want to lodge claims for injuries
sustained between 15 October 2013 to 30 January 2015.
It is important for us to keep communication channels open with you, your employer, and Work
Cover for us to achieve a timely resolution in the best interest of all parties. But we will encourage
and support you so you will remain at work or return to work as soon as possible.
