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.

I would like to thank the entire team at Garling and Co for being in my corner throughout the worst years I've experienced in my life.I chose Garling and Co in the end after being seriously injured... at work and needing representation, something I should have done years prior.I met with over 12 other legal firms in Sydney. Large,medium, small and all in between. Some were friends, some family, some were sharks, many were pressuring, many promised the world, Matthew was not like that.Matthew was the benchmark as he was one of the first I spoke with and ultimately he stood out in the end as I felt he was the most genuine.From the outset to the conclusion, I found Matthew to be very polite, easy to communicate with and extremely down to earth.He explained everything simply, he had answers for any questions along the way. He told me it how it was, not just what I wanted to hear.Matthew is a genuine nice guy that runs a very efficient and professional law firm. I made the correct choice engaging him in my claims and would not hesitate in recommending him.Renee was also terrific in handling my TPD claim which was literally finalised faster then international postage.Allison, Rebecca and Kelli were all great, always.Thanks again Garling and Co.read more

When you work for an employer for a number of decades and suffer a debilitating injury, you expect compassion, support and belief that you are genuine. When you don’t get that and then also have to... deal with Workers Compensation Insurers it slowly breaks you.That's when you need amazing support like Matthew Garling and his team. From my first meeting with Matthew I was confident I was referred to the right guy. I couldn’t be more pleased with my outcome. Matthew is the Guru of workers compensation, he is professional, easy to work with, nothings a bother and most importantly he gets great results. Do not think twice about using Garling and Co Lawyers.Thank you Matthew, Renee, Allison and Kelli for your invaluable support.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. We also understand how traumatic it is to suffer from a back injury, and how difficult it can be to receive the compensation you rightly deserve. We are here to help.
