Brydens Lawyers are the experts in the investigation and prosecution of Comcare claims. Comcare claims can be difficult and complex but need not be. For over 40 years Brydens Lawyers has been prosecuting these claims on behalf of injured workers and recovering the maximum compensation to which they are entitled.
Who can claim?
If you are a Commonwealth employee, or work for one of a number of licensed corporations (such as Australia Post, Telstra, Optus, Border Express, Linfox, TNT, Commonwealth Bank of Australia, CSL,Chubb and Centrelink) you would have available to you rights to claim compensation under the Comcare scheme.
If you have a dispute with your employer and believe you are eligible for compensation, you will need legal representation in order to get a favourable result.
At Brydens, we have a dedicated team that specialises in the recovery of compensation for injured workers.
What can be claimed?
If you are eligible to make a claim, benefits may include:
- Your reasonable out of pocket/medical expenses paid.
- Payment of weekly compensation if you cannot work (up to retirement age).
- Lump sum benefits if you have a permanent impairment.
You may also be entitled to recover common law damages for non-economic
loss in certain circumstances.
How do I claim?
Comcare schemes can be very complex and difficult to understand. To get the best possible outcome, it is important you have quality legal representation.
At Brydens, the lawyers and staff are specialists in the prosecution of Comcare claims.
For over 40 years now Brydens Lawyers has been operating a ‘No Win – No Fee”, policy which, simply put, provides that if a personal injury or compensation client is unsuccessful in their claim then Brydens Lawyers will not raise a tax invoice for having acted on behalf of the client. That is, if the claim is unsuccessful we do not get paid. More information about how this works can be found on our No Win – No Fee page.
