Workplace accidents

It’s your Legal Right to claim Compensation for a Workplace Accident

The Law states that you should be protected from accidents at work and must be compensated you if you suffer a no-fault injury. Health & Safety Laws grant protection for workers who have suffered health problems caused by unsafe working environments. This also includes injuries such as asbestosis, mesothelioma and other industrial diseases.

To be eligible to claim compensation we will need to demonstrate that the workplace injury was partly or entirely someone else’s fault. This could be your employer, due to the lack of training you have been provided with, another employee or even a visitor.

Your employer is breaking the law if they treat you unfairly or dismiss you after claiming compensation for a workplace accident. Businesses are required by law to have workers comp Insurance in case such accidents happen. If you are worried that your boss might be left with a hefty bill if you make a claim, please don't. It’s an insurance company that will pay your compensation and not your employer.

For a free consultation with an expert workers compensation lawyer call us now or start your claim online.


Our work injury solicitors deal with any types of injury claims on our No Win No Pay basis.

You are eligible to claim compensation for injuries caused by an accident in a workplace no matter what your employment status is. Whether you are a self-employed contractor, an agency worker, part or full-time employee, or even if you were just visiting the premises when the accident took place. There are also laws in place to protect you even if you were partly at fault for the accident.

Public place accidents

All occupiers of land or buildings, whether it’s a shop, office, public transport, supermarket, park or gymnasium, have a duty to care towards anyone visiting the premises. Public liability insurance is in place for when someone hurts themselves if the occupier neglected their duty. If you were injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault whilst out and about in public, then you could be entitled to get compensation.

The most common type of public liability claim we handle is for a slip, trip or fall injury. These are commonly caused by uncleaned spillages that leave floors slippery along with obstructions or damaged pavements and roads. To get public liability compensation, we will need to prove that the business or person that owns or is responsible for maintaining the area was in fact negligent.

For example, you could make a public liability claim against a shop or supermarket such as woolworths or coles if you slipped on something that had been left on the floor. If your accident happened on a council-owned property, such as a pavement then you will be able to make a public liability claim against the local shire. However, if your accident took place on public property while you were working, you might be able to claim against your employer.

In some instances, you may also be eligible to claim if your accident took place in a private home because the homeowner or landlord must have insurance in place to cover these types of accidental injuries.

Suffering a slip trip & fall injury can take place anywhere, whether it happened at work or in a public place we can help. These types of accidents usually take place as a result of poor health and safety which can be something as simple as a spillage left uncleaned in a shopping mall.

Thankfully most slipping and tripping accidents only cause victims to suffer minor injuries, but accidents, like falling off a ladder, or falling from height are often very serious and can lead to long-term disabilities and in some sad cases, death.

The personal injury lawyers at Unlucky handle slip, trip and fall claims on a No Win No Fee basis.

If you were injured at work you can claim compensation regardless of your employment status at the time of the accident.

It makes no difference whether you were working full or part-time, on your own ABN, working directly or through an employment agency. We can even help you if you were just visiting when the accident took place.

Employers by law are required to have public liability Insurance and workers comp to cover anyone who is involved in an accident. When you make a claim against your employer the compensation is usually paid by their insurance company, not themselves. Also, you don’t need to worry about being treated differently or being dismissed for making a claim because this would be illegal.

Claiming for slips, trips and falls in supermarkets and shops

Laws are in place to ensure that people are kept safe whilst out and about in public.

Recent cases that our legal team have helped people win compensation include:

Compensation for a woman who was injured as he slipped on a wet floor outside a shopping centre
Compensation for a man who slipped on spilt milk in the aisle of her local supermarket and broke her wrist
We successfully helped a mother claim for her child that tripped and fell over a raised piece of pavement in a city centre suffering head injuries
We helped an employee working in a packaging warehouse make a No Win No Fee claim after she tripped on some discarded packaging left by another employee
Slips, Trips & Falls on Roads & Pavements
Someone is responsible for every stretch of road in Australia and the Local highways authority are responsible for maintaining local roads and pavements. Please note that a trip up in the street or slip on a pavement does not mean that you are guaranteed compensation because the law accepts that roads and pavements can’t be in tip-top condition at all times. But if somebody else was to blame for your injury, then might have grounds to make a claim. If you’re unsure who was at fault for your Slip, Trip and Fall Injury, the best way is to speak with one of our experts today.
