Reviewing Workers Compensation Payments
Decisions made by insurers in relation to workers compensation payments can often be incorrect. Injured workers may challenge these decisions, at no cost to the worker, through the independent Legal Assistance and Review Service (ILARS). Under the ILARS scheme, certain accredited solicitors can receive a grant of legal aid to challenge the decisions made by insurers.
For example, a letter from an insurer to an injured construction worker stating that the worker’s weekly compensation payments will shortly end may be based on an incorrect interpretation of the relevant worker’s compensation legislation. This construction worker may be able to challenge and overturn this adverse decision though contacting Lamrocks, who can seek a grant of legal aid under the ILARS scheme.
