24/7 Access to WHS and Workers Compensation Legal Assistance. Workplace accidents don’t just happened between 9am -5pm Monday to Friday! In today’s modern global economy many workplaces operate outside the traditional working hours of 9am -5pm Monday to Friday.
As such, we believe it is important that our clients have 24/7 access to their WHS and workers compensation lawyers at these critical times. From the time of the workplace accident we can assist our clients with:
- What to do in those crucial first moments (eg. who to contact, notification requirements and what to record).
- What to say and how best to liaise with WorkCover, the Police, other lawyers and/or your insurer.
- Arranging investigations.
- Legal Advice on all potential liabilities – WHS prosecutions, workers compensation claims, employment law issues, injury management obligations and Improvement Notices.
- Dealing with the Media.
- Supporting and informing staff about the accident. This is particularly important when dealing with serious workplace accidents including fatalities.
For WHS emergencies we are available on call 24/7 via this dedicated number 02 9256 7524.
