Hi, I am Leon, a NSW Solicitor. I will be assisting you with your question. If you choose a telephone call, you will be charged an additional fee.
My apologies for the delay.
He may be eligible. If the employer has been negligent and not put in place the appropriate safety requirements then yes.
If your brother failed to use the equipment then he has contributed and any compensation is reduced.
He has to get a work cover certificate from his doctor and lodge it with his employer. It then becomes a matter for the insurer to determine if the employer was responsible.
I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. If you wish a phone call please elect for one but be aware it will be an additional fee. If there is nothing further thank you for using my services.
If I have missed anything, or you have any further questions please let me know
If there is anything else in the future please do not hesitate to ask.
Please do not forget to leave positive feedback.
