Australia’s statutory insurance landscape is characterised by a number of State, Territory and Commonwealth schemes administered in differing ways and that in recent years have been subject to significant change.

Development of the law in relation to workers' compensation is ongoing, and the amount of regulatory oversight and reform is ever-increasing, as regulators attempt to balance the interests of both employers and employees whilst maintaining schemes that are equitable, affordable, and practical.

Indeed, there are over 5,000 pieces of legislation in Australia under which business owners and employers can be held accountable for workers' compensation, and as such the complexity of the legal landscape and the associated challenges of negotiating it cannot be overstated.

The compulsory third party (CPT) landscape is similarly complex with different schemes in each Australian jurisdiction that are subject to both regulatory constraints and political influence.

For this reason, when you are considering pursuing a statutory insurance claim, it is essential that you seek specialised legal advice as soon as possible. Our team at Dormer Stanhope has experience handling all sorts of claims from the straightforward to the exceedingly complex and are highly skilled in all forms of alternative dispute resolution and litigation.

Not only can we advise you about whether your claim fits within a given statutory scheme and on the prospects of its success, but we can guide you through the process of making a claim, and keep you informed of the numerous ancillary issues which arise so that you make the best decisions possible.

Whether you have commenced or are considering making a worker’s compensation or CTP claim, contact Dormer Stanhope today for a free initial consultation and a clearer understanding of your rights.
