Your Entitlements

If you are injured during your years of service as a Police Officer, you are entitled to make a claim for:

  • All reasonable necessary medical expenses
  • Make-up pay – where you’re back at work, but not back to your full hours or duties
  • Lump-sum payments for ‘pain and suffering’. When you’ve suffered a permanent impairment of a body part due to an injury occurring on duty (such as a back injury at work)
hurt on duty claims

Work Injury Damages Claims

If you sustained an injury in the last 30 years, the Australian Government has preserved your right to demand a claim for work injury damages, provided you’ve suffered an injury that is assessed at 15% (or more) of what is termed ‘Whole Person Impairment’.

​If you are a pre-1988 Officer, there is no threshold.

Public Liability

We can also help with

  1. General advice when you’ve been off work a while and you think you can’t go back – helping you understand your ongoing entitlements;
  2. What Medical Discharge means for you;
  3. How to get your TPD lump sum;
  4. What happens once you leave.

No Win, No Pay

At Bourke Legal, we have a No Win-No Fee policy. What this means is that you do not pay legal fees unless your case is successful. If your case succeeds, that’s when we’ll charge our legal fees.
