Archer Bushby

Our Services

We provide a range of services which include the following major areas of practice.

Workers Compensation

If you’ve been injured at work, the prospect of dealing with our workers compensation system can be quite daunting. You might just want to know what your rights are and what lies ahead for you when you’ve been injured, what obligations you have and what you are entitled to expect from your employer and its insurer. We are happy to sit down with you to explain all of these things in clear and simple terms, and will do so free of charge.

If your employer has disputed your treatment expenses, or threatened to cut off or reduce your payments of compensation, we can help.

Do you have a right to lump sum compensation? What is the difference between this and a payment that is offered to you in settlement of your claim? You may have rights and entitlements you’re not aware of, and we can tell you about these and help you to obtain them. Accepting a lump sum offered to you by an insurer, or signing a document in return for such a payment can have far more serious consequences than you might imagine. What rights do you lose, what are the tax consequences, what amounts have to be paid out of what you receive? Will you still be able to rely on social security benefits if you need to?

In many cases you may just need some simple advice which we can provide free of charge. If you need representation, if you become involved in workers compensation tribunal proceedings, or if you simply want to put an end to the workers compensation ordeal and settle your claim, we can help.


Personal Injury Claims

We have considerable experience in the pursuit and defence of personal injury claims. You'll receive an early assessment and advice in respect of your prospects and the value of your claim, and we shall be happy to provide a free initial explanation of your potential entitlements and your options. We offer vigorous and efficient pursuit of your claim or defence, with access to expert advice and assistance from medical, engineering and other professionals. Our focus is on early favourable outcomes, with minimal delay between commencement and resolution of all claims. We have substantial experience across all fields of personal injury claims including workplace injuries, motor vehicle accident injuries and public liability claims.

If you've been injured, be wary of "no win, no fee" arrangements that charge extra for a so called "win". At Archer Bushby you'll only pay for the work that's done for you, and as a successful claimant you'll be able to recover all or most of your costs from the other party.
