We pursue all potential benefits with equal tenacity, including;

Medical and the like expenses

The necessary expenses such as doctors, medications, and conservative and operative treatments.

Weekly payments

Often payable when a worker is unfit for work due to a work-related injury. Even when a worker’s entitlement to weekly payments is terminated by the Workcover insurer, it is possible to have the decision overturned on appeal.

Lump sum payments / Common law

When a worker sustains a permanent injury they may be entitled to lump sum compensation. This may be via a Section 98C Impairment Benefit or a Common Law settlement requiring proof that a worker has sustained a serious injury caused by the employer’s negligent conduct. Either way, Zaparas Lawyers will efficiently access the greatest compensation to which an injured worker is entitled.
