Experienced Workers Compensation Lawyers Who Assist You with Your Queensland Claim

It doesn’t cost you anything to know where you stand

If you have suffered a physical or psychological injury in the execution of your employment in Queensland, you are eligible to lodge a Workers Compensation claim in this State with or without assistance from workers compensation lawyers. But with the help of Brisbane based Lyons Compensation Lawyers the process won’t be as daunting. 

If your injury is the result of negligent actions of your employer or another employee, there are legal avenues you can explore for personal injury compensation under common law. Even if your injury is the result of non negligent action, you are still entitled to claim for certain benefits under the Workers Compensation regulations. 

This process can be very complex and at times overwhelming to conquer on your own. While focus is put heavily on the responsibilities of injured workers, you also have rights under legislation that are there to protect you and assist you in this difficult time.
