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.  These challenges can leave employers feeling overwhelmed by the legal process.

I work with employers in various industries to make the claim process for their business smoother.

In addition to my legal qualifications and experience in defending and negotiating common law claims, I also have 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.  My client’s can also benefit from the OH&S advice I can provide to help identify risks and prevent future incidents by reviewing their systems of work, safety procedures and risk management processes.

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 and defend the claim. If you’d like to speak to Sam about your matter, she can be contacted by email
