We specialise in Back Injuries at Work

How do I know if I have a back injury compensation claim?

If you’re unsure whether or not you have a back injury claim, then it’s vital you seek legal advice from Garling & Co as soon as possible so we can assess your individual circumstances and situation.

Back injuries are common and usually occur when lifting or bending during the course of employment.

If your injury is serious and you require surgery you may also have a right to sue an employer for negligence, this is known in NSW as a work injury damages claim.

If you’ve sustained a back injury at work, seek legal help as soon as you can so we can assess whether you have an injury at work claim and make sure you understand your rights and entitlements.

My last stage of Workers compensation claim was managed by Emma Perkins, Natasha Stojanovic, Rebecca Dunshea and Kelli Robinson at Garling and Co. Lawyers who went the extra mile with their service... from the beginning to the end of 3 years of my case. I have become very anxious with almost everything after a workplace injury and a lot of times I probably ask more questions than I need to, but Emma Perkins always finds clear answers to my questions in a short time and explains to me patiently even using her mealtime or between her meeting and make me feel that I have been very well take care and supported. I am so grateful and extremely satisfied. The excellent service, attitude, and culture of Metthew Garling and his team are second to none with a very high success rate. If you going to battle with your workplace injury for a short or long period, you are better off with Garling and Co. lawyers who are able back you up every step of the way. I strongly recommend it to anybody who needs their service like me. Julieread more

Work cover fund is GOVT’S money but insurer think that it is from their 14th generation. So only they can have it. Not only that, people from the work, IME doctor from insurer, back to work... coordinator from work, Rehab provider from any side push the worker as hard as possible that the worker (doesn’t matter how the workers mental or psychical condition) either go back to his pre injury duty or leave the job.More over on that very bumpy any difficult journey some of them only treat the worker as a MONEY MAKING MECHINE .in some point worker feels like, no rooms to breath. On that moment need someone to support legally, someone to care, someone to relive.On my case I believe that, somehow, I manage to make my God happy. That’s why God sends me to Matthew Gerling and his team Allison, Rebecca and Nathan, and all of GARLING & co Lawyers.I am not good enough in English, can’t express my gratitude.Matthew, Allison, Rebecca and Nathan, please accept my appreciation and pass it to others.read more

Common Questions

1. Are there time limits or restrictions on when I can make a back-injury claim?

Back injury claims are governed by strict time limits, so it’s important that you contact Garling & Co as soon as possible to discuss whether you have a claim. You’ll need to bring your claim forward within a certain period of time, and these time limits vary between states.

Complete our free no-obligation confidential case assessment form here so we can provide you with a thorough consultation as to your rights and entitlements and ensure that your chance to claim for a back injury is not missed.

2. What can I claim back injury accident compensation for?

Back injuries can be one of the most painful and debilitating injuries a person can sustain. They often inhibit our ability to move, work, care for our children, see our family and friends, and pursue other activities we love and enjoy.

Depending on the individual circumstances of your back injury, you may be able to claim for things like:

  • Hospital and rehab expenses
  • Home nursing and care
  • Loss of past and future weekly earnings
  • A Lump sum for whole person impairment

Once Garling & Co know the unique situation of your back injury at work, we’ll be able to provide you with a more thorough and comprehensive detail of what you will be able to personally claim.

3. How much does it cost to make a back-injury claim?

The NSW Government has introduced a system where legal costs are payable on your behalf. A claim under the NSW Workers Compensation Act does not cost you any money in legal costs.

In relation to negligence claims we operate on a No Win No Fee basis, so if we don’t win your back injury claims case, then you won’t pay us a cent!

It’s important to make sure you understand how your lawyer will charge legal costs, how much you will be charged, and when the legal costs are payable. If you sign a costs agreement without first understanding the terms, you may end up with a very large legal bill!

4. Who will pay the back-injury compensation?

If you suffer from a back injury in the workplace, when you’re out in public, or during a vehicle accident, then the compensation will be paid to you by the relevant insurance company.

5. Why choose Garling & Co lawyers?

If you’re wanting to find out whether you have a case for a back-injury compensation claim, turn to Garling & Co lawyers. We believe in the rights of the individual; a person’s right to fight for what is just and fair.
