What you need to know.

Everyone is entitled to recover their ​legal costs from the insure

Even if you’ve suffered injury, such as a back injury at work, and can still work, you may be entitled to a lump sum. You may be able to also recover your lost earnings (including overtime and penalties) during your recovery period.

You can choose who legally represents you

​You don’t have to use the Association lawyers who are suggested to you. Nor do you have use a firm nominated by them. All you need is a suitably qualified lawyer that knows what they’re doing.

Work Injury Damages Claims

Injured in the last 30 years? Then the Australian Government has preserved your right to bring a claim for work injury (psychological or psychiatric) damages, provided you’ve suffered an injury that is assessed at 15% (or more) of what is termed ‘Whole Person Impairment’.

​If you are a pre-1988 Officer, there is no threshold.
