Benefits for CNSA members

Maurice Blackburn Lawyers has consistently demonstrated its capacity to provide meaningful and ongoing personal and professional benefits to members of partner organisations.

Support for you and your colleagues

Navigating the legal space and statutory compensation schemes can be daunting for those suffering from serious injury or illness. Add into the mix the expense and logistical challenge of coordinating early rehabilitation, and many people find it too difficult to manage the complex obligations, rights and entitlements associated with making a claim for compensation. Fortunately, good communication and information sharing between service providers can make all the difference for clients and patients. 

MB is passionate about engaging with the medical community because we know that access to expert legal guidance and support can help even the most experienced medical service providers ensure their patients are receiving the best possible care.

We are available to consult with you – free of charge – to support issues relating to compensation schemes impacting your patients or clinic. We stand ready to assist with any questions you might have relating to the work or road accident compensation scheme in your state, or any questions you or your patients might have regarding a specific claim.

Education Workshops

MB runs complimentary on-site and virtual education workshops to help members understand their legal obligations, rights and entitlements. We cover topics such as:

  • Legal entitlements related to:-
    • Occupational disease

  • Medical Legal Issues and Record keeping
