The different States and Territories of Australia have different rules governing their schemes, but if you’ve been injured at work or on your way to or from work in NSW, you need to talk to our expert lawyers about Workers’ Compensation. You may be entitled to a range of benefits under the scheme, which is there to help you through the hard times after a work-related injury or illness. You may have many hurdles to overcome after an injury or illness, and our lawyers at PK Simpson can help you get through it.
There are many circumstances where you might need legal advice because every Workers Compensation claim is different.

We will be there with you through thick and thin, providing understanding, support, compassion and flexibility. We take care of the legal part while you take care of your health while you recover. Whether you’ve just been injured, or have run into trouble after years of receiving Workers’ Compensation payments, we can help you with legal advice. We can help you if:
- You’ve sustained a workplace injury or illness and don’t know what to do
- You don’t know how to go about making a claim
- Your employer is trying to make you go back to work
- You haven’t been paid properly
- Your boss’ insurer is taking forever to respond or won’t pay for your treatment
- And more…
All Workers’ Compensation claims in NSW are government funded, meaning you do not pay any fees for legal representation or advice, so if you make a claim, your lawyer is paid by the WIRO.
