Other than where funding is available from WIRO, we act on a ‘no win no fee’ basis for persons who have suffered a workplace injury.
This means that we will investigate your claim and, if no claim is brought on your behalf, then you will not be charged for any of the costs incurred in investigating your claim.
WIRO (the Workers Compensation Independent Review Office) provides funding to investigate and act in respect of claims for weekly payments, for recovery of medical and other expenses and for lump sum compensation for whole person impairment. As WIRO approved lawyers, when we act in such matters, costs and expenses are payable by WIRO and not the client.
Accordingly you will not be out of pocket at any stage.
If your matter involves a work injury damages claim, an application under Comcare legislation, or a claim under an insurancepolicy (such as for TPD), if we agree to act we will enter into a No Win, No Fee Costs Agreement with you. We will undertake to pay all the disbursements incurred in litigating your claim (court fees, fees for expert report) and not charge you for the legal costs as your matter progresses. If you are not successful in your claim, you will not pay our costs or disbursements. If you are successful in your claim, then you will recover most of your costs from the defendant. Find out more…
