Lower fee cap.

Are you seeking compensation through a WorkCover injury 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 claims go to you.

If you work in Queensland and were injured due to the negligence of your employer or a coworker, you will be entitled to lodge a WorkCover claim. Lawyers should only come into play after you seek medical treatment (it’s important to put your health first!) and report the incident to your employer.

Following this, you can begin the claim by lodging an application for workers’ compensation benefits to WorkCover Queensland or your employer’s self-insurer. This claim will assist you by covering a substantial portion of your wages, medical treatment and rehabilitation expenses so that you can focus on your recovery.

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 WorkCover claim lawyers, as it may prevent you from further WorkCover injury compensation claims.
