Workers Compensation Lawyers Brisbane Services for Psychological Injury
Our workers compensation lawyers Brisbane team understand issues that psychological injury can occur in the workplace or as a result of your work, and you may be eligible to make a worker’s compensation claim. This can include a wide range of conditions, including stress, burnout, depression, anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
You may be eligible to make a claim if you:
- have developed a psychological injury or mental health issue as a result of your work
- have developed a psychological injury or mental health issue due to workplace stress or bullying
- have a pre-existing mental health issue that worsened at work
This applies to full-time, part-time and casual employees, as well as subcontractors.
What you need to do if you sustain a psychological injury as a result of your work:
If you’re thinking about pursuing a workplace compensation claim, it’s best to get started sooner rather than later. Ideally, this would be within 30 days of the injury occurring, or within 30 days of the issue being identified if it’s not immediately apparent.
As with all compensation claims, there are limits on how long after an event you can submit a claim, but this varies depending on your individual circumstances. Our obligation-free first appointments are a great place to start – we can run through all the time limits and what would be involved in pursuing a claim in your particular circumstances. There can be a lot to consider, so it’s a good idea to get all the information and move forward knowing your options.
Compensation and benefits
Depending on the specifics of your case, you may be eligible for compensation. In situations where you are able to work again after some time off, you may receive a portion of your usual weekly earnings and cover for medical fees. Where you have become permanently disabled and are no longer able to work, it may take the form of a lump sum compensation. Our workers compensation lawyers Brisbane team will help with your claim today.
