We will represent you at no cost to you if we are acting on your behalf in relation to a workers’ compensation case. We will arrange for your costs to be paid by the Workers Compensation Independent Review Office (WIRO). In all other personal injury compensation cases, we will act on your behalf on a no win, no fee basis*.

Call us for an explanation and clear advice on all matters concerning your workers’ compensation rights. This may include situations where:
- Your employer is not supporting your return to work;
- The insurer will not pay for your treatment expenses for injuries suffered in the course of your employment;
- You are not being paid any or the correct wages/weekly compensation payments;
- You are being pressured by the employer or the insurer to return to work against your doctor’s advice;
- You may be entitled to a lump sum compensation payment for your injuries, treatment expenses, domestic assistance, and weekly compensation payments.
We represent clients who have been injured at work (including when traveling in the course of their employment, when on breaks during work hours, or on business travel) and provide them with smart and quick legal advice and support through the compensation claim process.
Our compensation lawyers are approved by the Workers Compensation Independent Review Office (WIRO) and therefore, we will act on your behalf at no cost to you, as we arrange for your legal costs to be paid for by WIRO.
If you have sustained a serious workplace injury, then in addition to assisting you in obtaining your workers’ compensation rights, we can also start a negligence claim against the workers’ compensation insurer and the employer.
This can potentially result in a large lump sum compensation payment representing your past and future wage loss and loss of superannuation benefits.
Medical negligence can happen when a health professional fails to provide you with reasonable care or treatment or misdiagnoses your condition. This can also happen as a result of cosmetic treatment as well. Medical negligence is a complex area of law that requires expert advice and counsel. Lionheart Lawyers have the knowledge and experience to ensure you receive the compensation you deserve for any damage or loss you may suffer as a result of medical negligence.
If you have suffered an injury, or have lost a loved one, because of a car, motorcycle, or other motor accident, Lionheart Lawyers’ will fight for you and help ensure that you get the right compensation. This may include compensation for:
- Loss of wages;
- Medical treatment;
- Domestic assistance/care;
- Lump sum for your injuries;
- Funeral expenses.
Motor accident injuries can cause hardship, stress and financial trauma that can be life-changing for victims and their loved ones. Our legal experts will advise you in relation to your rights, and represent you in a tribunal or Court in the event that settlement is not reached.
Many people do not know about public liability compensation and that they may be entitled to pursue a claim for compensation for injuries that they may have suffered. Public liability compensation claims encompass a large range of situations, including injuries due to:
- Slipping over in a store/shopping centre;
- Sporting activities;
- Incidents at school;
- Dog bites;
- Homeowner’s negligence (including at rental properties);
- Defective/faulty products;
- Cosmetic/medical treatment not administered by a health professional.
It is important to seek legal advice promptly if you think you may have grounds for a public liability claim. Lionheart Lawyers has extensive experience representing clients in relation to Public Liability compensation claims.
If you become unable to work because of an illness, disability or injury (it does not matter who was at fault, or if it arose from an accident), you may be able to pursue a total and permanent disability (TPD) claim and/or an income protection claim. Most people have valuable coverage for such claims attached to their superannuation. If you belong to more than one superannuation fund, you may be eligible to claim multiple TPD lump sums.
At Lionheart Lawyers, we can assist you in lodging your claim and if necessary, challenging a declined claim to maximise your compensation.
Even holidays cannot prevent injuries. People can unexpectedly sustain an injury while:
- On a cruise, airplane, train and coach;
- Travelling to or from destinations;
- Overseas or interstate.
The above scenarios may give rise to such claims as:
- A travel insurance policy claim;
- A personal injury claim against the carrier, airline, cruise ship, or coach company;
- A personal injury claim against the travel agent.
Lionheart Lawyers can help in advising you on how to prepare and where to lodge your claim, on dealing with insurers, and generally fighting for you to achieve the best possible compensation outcome.
