A series of free information sessions will also be held covering:
- Motor Vehicle Compensation – including: time limits for lodging documents; compensation and entitlements for you and family members, and how to challenge a decision
- The WorkCover Scheme – including: an overview of the scheme, how to define a work related incident, what your entitlements and benefits are and how to dispute a decision
- Emergency Services Workers - How the new changes to WorkCover will affect your safety at work
- Public Venue Incidents – including: an overview of the law relating to public venture incidents and how to identify if you have a claim.
Free face painting, coffee and icy refreshments will be available between 12-2pm. The event will support Tamworth Hospital, through optional donations for refreshments and Wills services.
Residents interested in the free Will offer need to register online. To register to attend or for more information visit www.slatergordon.com.au/tamworth
The new Tamworth office will be led by local lawyer David Allen, who was born in Tamworth and grew up in the region.
“My goal with this new office is to combine ‘big city’ expertise with ‘country town’ personal service,” Mr Allen said.
“It was paramount we service the city of Tamworth and its surrounding communities as the capital of the New England North West. I have grown up in this region and understand the issues that local workers and their families face in tough times.
“I look forward to meeting everyone at the community information day.”
The new Tamworth Office is located at Shop 2, 454-456 Peel Street, ph: (02) 6763 1900
