Accidents happen to us all and, unfortunately, sometimes they happen at work. Filing a Worksafe Compensation Board claim can be a complex task filled with appeals, entitlement issues and specific demands made by WorksafeBC. Our role is to navigate those complexities and counsel you on what to expect and look out for in the claim’s process.
In our initial meeting, we will discuss your claim and answer any questions you may have. If you retain our services, we will order the disclosure file and request a review of your decision. Once submitted, the case is then subject to review. If a hearing is necessary, our lawyers have the experience and skill set required to manage the process, a process that you can be involved in as much or as little as you prefer.
Our services include but are not limited to:
- Free 30 minute consultation
- Review Division appeals
- Workers’ Compensation Appeal Tribunal appeals
- Reopening of claims
- Employer classification for assessment purposes, and experience rating
- Employer notification obligations regarding workplace injuries and occupational disease claims
- Workers’ compensation claims adjudication and appeals
- Workers’ compensation wage loss and permanent disability pension benefits
- Applications for workers’ compensation claims cost relief
Those who have made a claim and received a decision letter from WorkSafeBC usually only have 90 days to request a review of the decision. As this is a short timeline, working with someone who is experienced and has been through the process before, can give you peace of mind knowing your case will be quickly and efficiently looked after.
In some instances, WorkSafeBC’s decision may be final; however, we will review your decision thoroughly to ensure all avenues have been examined, and we have done everything possible to achieve a positive outcome on your behalf.
If you have any questions or concerns about a recent claim, feel free to reach out to Kelsey or any one of our lawyers.
