Compensation for Farm Accidents
Can I claim workers compensation if I am a temporary work?
The short answer is Yes. You can claim compensation if you are injured at work or on the way to work, and you meet the definition of “worker”. Most of the casual workers, part-time workers, backpackers, seasonal workers should meet the definition of worker for the purpose of claiming workers comp in WA. For more information about the definition of the worker, contact a local workers compensation lawyer in Perth for your obligation free claim review.
Can you get workers comp from a temp agency?
If you are contracted through a temping agency to work on the farm and injured on the farm at work. You may also claim workers comp from your temp agency.
Can I claim workers compensation if I do not have a formal employment contract?
Yes, if you can prove the employment relationship. Proving your employee status without a written employment contract can be complex. If you have made a claim for farm accident compensation, Contact Foyle Legal to get your obligation free assessment.
Can I claim workers compensation if I am not an Australian resident?
The short answer is Yes. You can claim workers compensation if you are not a permanent resident of Australia if you can:
- Prove that you have a valid visa to work in Australia at the time of your workplace accident.
- Prove that you meet the definition of a worker at the time of your accident at work.
The same right extends to the family members of fatally injured workers on the farm. Foyle Legal has extensive experience helping injured workers and families live outside of Australia.
In some circumstances, you may be eligable for workers compensation even if your contract of employment is illegal pursuant to Section 192 of the Workers Compensation and Injury Management Act. This section says that in WorkCover WA proceedings it appears to a WorkCover WA Arbitrator that the contract of employment under which the injured worker was engaged at the time when the injury occurred was illegal, the WorkCover WA Arbitrator may, deal with the matter as if the injured person had at that time been a worker under a valid contract.
Can I claim injury compensation if I live outside of Australia?
Yes, if the workplace accident happened in Australia, and the injured person meets the definition of worker. Foyle Legal can help you to manage your injury claim or dependency claim from Western Australia, and keep you informed regularly.
No Win No Fee Lawyers for Farm Accident Compensation
Dealing with an injury or death of a family can be challenging both emotionally and financially. Most No Win No Fee lawyers offers legal service without charging you legal fees until you received compensation payouts.
How do No Win No Fee Lawyers work?
Generally, no win no fee lawyers do not charge a legal fee upfront, they only charge you the legal fee when they successfully settle the injury claim, and you have received the compensation payouts. Each of the No Win No Fee agreements vary slightly from one to another. You must understand the terms in the cost agreement before engaging a No Win No Fee lawyer.
Foyle Legal offers simple to understand and straightforward No Win No Fee legal services.
How much do No Win No Fee lawyers take?
In your cost agreement, your No Win No Fee lawyer should state the mechanism and rates that you are charged. Some take a large percentage of your settlement, and some only charge you for the work they have done.
At Foyle Legal, we only charge you for the work we have done, and at a rate set down by the government. We only do work that is deemed essential and necessary to progress and to improve your injury claim.
Do No Win No Fee lawyers take a large cut of my compensation payouts?
Foyle Legal aims to provide affordable legal service. Once we won a personal injury compensation payment for you, we try to recover most of our legal fees from the insurer. There may be a small contribution from you to cover the shortfall. However, the amount is generally very low compare to your compensation payout.
