One of the most common legal issues facing electricians in Newcastle and indeed electricians throughout Australia relates to public liability insurance claims and Workcover.
Unfortunately, being an electrical contractor can be a dangerous job. There are so many things that can go wrong when working with electricity – especially high voltages, that it’s inevitable that an electrician will get injured while on the job, and that legal advice may be sought.
This is why we offer a wide range of legal services for electrical contractors throughout the Newcastle region – as we want to make sure that both the employee and employers can all receive fair representation when an injury occurs.
Our Legal Services Include:
- WorkCover assistance
- Helping you make a claim
- Getting you back to work
- Worker’s Compensation
- And more
Common Injuries Whilst on the Job
- Shoulder injuries
- Knee injuries
- Back injuries
- Vehicle accident
When Should You Seek Legal Advice?
Seeking legal advice if you are an electrician should not be a daunting task. If you have been injured on the job, you have every right to seek legal representation to ensure that you get your entitlements fulfilled, or receive compensation where it is appropriate.
We have seen many instances where the employee has received a seizable payout as a result of these WorkCover claims – so it is recommended that if you have experienced any issues at all at work, that you get in touch with your local legal council, and get representation.
