Workers compensation claims can be complex with a great deal of attendant uncertainty and apprehension. Many injured members can feel they have been ignored and just swallowed up by a great big system.
Some members feel it’s a case of doing what you are told and when you are told.
Michael Barnes of Carroll & O’Dea, reaffirms the firm’s commitment to:
- Early consultation with members;
- Assisting members with the completion of workers compensation forms which can raise a wide range of issues together with how to deal with investigators seeking witness statements.
- Helping members to understand the trials and tribulations of the workers compensation system.
Michael is only a phone call away and of course the firm has a commitment to regional visits, toll-free telephone services and significant offices in Sydney, Parramatta, Wollongong and Newcastle.
Even if liability has been accepted, it costs you nothing to pick up the phone and have a discussion about the workers compensation system as well as your possible rights and obligations.
Members are urged to take this opportunity whether in relation to a past claim, an existing claim or a pending claim.
You are urged to ring the union on 1300 136 604 for a prompt referral to get the right advice.
