Lower fee cap.

When lodging a workers’ compensation claim, lawyers often operate on a 50% fee cap – meaning they can walk away with up to half of your settlement amount. At Gouldson Legal, we think this is unfair. We charge at competitive hourly rates with a 30% fee cap to ensure the bulk of the settlement from any workplace injury claims go to you.

If you work in Queensland and have been injured during the course of your employment–either due to the negligence of your employer or a coworker–you will be entitled to lodge a workers’ compensation claim.

Lawyers at Gouldson Legal will meet with you to discuss the situation and take you through the claims process, step by step. There are two stages to a workers’ compensation claim:

  1. Statutory Compensation Benefits
  2. Common Law Damages

During the initial Statutory stage, you will be able to claim compensation for the majority of your wages, medical treatment and rehabilitation expenses from WorkCover Queensland or your employer’s self-insurer. This stage will end when you return to work or no longer require medical treatment. You are not required to prove fault.

If you can’t return to work, WorkCover (or the self-insurer) will offer you a lump sum compensation based on a permanent impairment assessment, and your benefits will cease. You should not accept this offer until you have sought legal advice from professional workers’ compensation claim lawyers, as it may prevent you from claiming further compensation.

During the Common Law Damages stage, you are required to prove that your injuries occurred due the negligence of an employer or employee. This is often not as straightforward as one would expect. Workers’ compensation claim lawyers must ensure that every possible angle is considered before proceeding with a Common Law claim.

Our specialist team of workers’ compensation claim lawyers will guide you through the process and achieve the results you deserve.
