Workers’ Compensation Claims

If you have had a workplace injury or accident, or you are a victim of workplace bullying, our Worker’s Compensation lawyers are ready to help.

There are stringent guidelines and regulations that govern workers’ compensation claims. These rules have to be met. If you have been injured whilst at work we’ll assess your claim and help you secure any compensation you’re owed so that you can focus on getting back to full health.

Transport Accident Commission (TAC)

If you have suffered an injury that was caused by a motor vehicle or transport accident, the Transport Accident Commission (TAC) will assess your claim and likely award you accident compensation.

However, the TAC may not always consider all the factors of your claim, or may in fact rule against your claim. For this reason you need independent legal advice on your side to ensure your best chance at a fair outcome and full accident compensation entitlements.

Medical Negligence Claims

Have you suffered an injury as a result of medical treatment? Mazzeo Lawyers can help you on your road to recovery.  Here at Mazzeo Lawyers we have experienced medical negligence lawyers in Melbourne who are well equipped to handle claims for injuries sustained during medical treatment.

Medical treatment doesn’t always go the way we had hoped.  Negligence is the failure of someone to demonstrate a reasonable standard of care.  If a medical practitioner’s carelessness, actions or omissions have resulted in you suffering an injury you may have a claim in negligence against that practitioner.

Examples include situations such as a failure to adequately warn about the risks of treatment, a failure to obtain informed consent, a failure to diagnose a condition, surgical mistakes, inadequate after care and follow up and birth complications.  This includes birth injuries, brain injuries, medication errors and even wrongful death. You may have even sustained injuries as a result of defective medical devices which can lead to a number of injuries which you should be compensated for with the help of a lawyer.

If you suffer injuries as a result of medical treatment that falls below the standard of care expected of a practitioner you may be entitled to make a claim for damages.

These include compensation for your pain and suffering (subject to being found to have a ‘significant injury’), the medical expenses you have incurred and are likely to incur in the future, any loss of income suffered and reduction in your ability to earn income in the future and the cost of assistance that you require at home due to your injuries.  These damages are paid as a single lump sum when your claim is settled or your case won.

If you have encountered pain and suffering as a result of injuries incurred from hospital negligence, medication errors or as a result of physician negligence resulting in failure to diagnose, then you should seek advice from an experienced lawyer at Mazzeo.

If you have been injured as a result of medical treatment you want to know your legal team see you and not just your case.  At Mazzeo Lawyers each and every one of our clients are important.  We return phone calls promptly, we answer emails personally and we are always happy to provide advice or help when we can.  We are the Melbourne medical negligence lawyers you can trust completely to represent you.
