Workers who injured at work place will come into contact with WorkCover when making a claim for workers compensation.

WorkCover is a statutory authority that was set up to manage workplace injuries including injury prevention, rehabilitation and compensation.

Barwick Boitano Lawyers will be able to guide you and help you when making a claim.

Your employer’s insurer needs to be notified and they are required by law to decide within seven days whether you are eligible for provisional weekly payments for a maximum of twelve weeks and provisional medical expenses up to $7,500.00 until your claim is either approved or refused.

It is important to ensure that your employer’s insurer is notified as soon as possible, as an insurer is allowed to refuse provisional liability payments if they are notified of the injury more than two months after the injury occurred.

At Barwick Boitano Lawyers, our Accredited Specialist, Frank Boitano is ready to help you with your workers compensation claim, so that you are able to return to work as soon as possible. If your injuries prevent your return to work, he will assist you to obtain your full entitlements to workers compensation.

He understands that work injuries can cause enormous financial pressure at a time when you are physically and mentally vulnerable and his expertise in providing quick and efficient advice at a time when you need it most will offer you the reassurance you need of dealing with an expert.

There are often disagreements with an insurer that slow down the process of your claim and he can advise you on what to do, if you fail to receive a response from the insurer or if there is a refusal of the insurer to make weekly payments or to cover the costs of medical expenses.

Frank is also experienced in handling disputes where an insurer determines that a specific treatment you have requested is not reasonably necessary.

There are a number of legal requirements that you are required to comply with when making an application to the Commission and we can ensure that you meet these requirements so that your claim can be dealt with as quickly and efficiently as possible.

Barwick Boitano Lawyers can offer you sound, professional advice and service that allows you to focus on your recovery and rehabilitation from your workplace injury.
