Managing workers’ compensation claims can be both emotionally and financially challenging for employers, especially small-to-medium businesses that may not have the internal processes or resources to manage the claim effectively, and can end up feeling overwhelmed by the legal process.
I work with employers across a variety of industries to make this process easier, by defending the claim and managing the overall process on their behalf.
In addition to my legal qualifications and experience in defending and negotiating common law claims, I am currently undertaking a Graduate Diploma in Occupational Health and Safety. Having this OH&S focus allows me to bring additional insight to my client’s workers’ compensation claims, but they also benefit from the OH&S advice I can provide to help identify risks and prevent future incidents by reviewing their systems of work, risk assessment and risk management processes, ergonomics and workplace safety procedures.
With all of my clients, I take a common-sense approach, first seeking to understand their business operations so that I can provide the best quality advice. If you’d like to speak to Sam about your matter, she can be contacted on firstname.lastname@example.org
