Access to Union Lawyers for Injured Members
Workers compensation claims can be complex with a great deal of attendant uncertainty and apprehension. Many injured members can feel that they are being ignored and just swallowed up by a great big system where it is 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 claim form, which can raise a wide range of issues, including 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.
Even if liability is accepted, it costs you nothing to pick up the phone and have a discussion about the workers compensation system, your possible rights and obligations.
Members are urged to take up this opportunity whether it is in relation to a past claim, an existing claim or a pending claim.
You are urged to ring the union for a prompt referral to get the right advice.
