Statutory Lines Insurance

Expertise - Statutory Lines Insurance - Mornington Peninsula

Broad experience. Leading national practice.

When our already complex State and Commonwealth statutory regimes keep changing, it’s a perpetual compliance challenge for insurers and employers; we have a deep appreciation for the differences in, and implications of, each jurisdiction’s scheme.

When our clients are entangled in intricacies across multiple jurisdictions, we can assist as we cover every Australian jurisdiction, defending statutory and common law actions across countless industries.

We advise on claims resulting from stress, psychiatric illness, dust/asbestos disease, chemical toxicity and acoustic injury, fatal accident and dependency claims, and claims involving catastrophic injury.  Early resolution is our tried and tested formula. That could be during conciliation at the Accident Compensation Conciliation Service, Work Health Court, Workers Rehabilitation & Compensation Tribunal or The Conciliation and Arbitration Service; or in contested matters in the Magistrates’ Court, County Court, AAT, Federal Court, Workers Compensation Commission, District Court or Supreme Court. We’re regulars in the Dust Diseases Tribunal and appellate jurisdictions. 

Beyond individual claims, we look at the broader portfolio and claims management issues, including long tail claims. Insurers talk to us about maintaining their self-insurance licenses as well.  We’ve got the answers to our clients' questions on the statutory requirements of being a self-insurer, or what the best State or Commonwealth schemes to participate in are.
