Lump Sum Entitlements

Endured a permanent impairment or illness related to your work, job or occupation? The injury compensation lawyers at Fortitude Legal in Ballarat, Bendigo and Geelong can help.

If your work-related injury or illness results in a permanent impairment, you may be entitled to a lump sum of compensation.  This entitlement does not require that you prove that your injury occurred as a result of the fault of another party.

Any entitlement is based upon your level of impairment which can be assessed as soon as 12 months following your injury.

There are certain thresholds that have to be met depending on the type of injury you have suffered and this will be explained clearly to you by our team of experts.

The scheme surrounding workers compensation and your entitlements is complex and there are strict time limits that apply.  It is important that you get appropriate legal advice from the outset to ensure that your rights are protected.

We can help you navigate the scheme, maximise your entitlements and make the decisions that are right for your future.
