Workers Compensation

Workers’ compensation is a system that provides benefits to employees who sustain work-related injuries or develop occupational illnesses. In these cases, independent medical experts play a critical role in evaluating the medical aspects of the condition and its relationship to the individual’s work environment.

360 Medico Legal specialists are able to assess and document the medical aspects of work-related injuries or illnesses.

Our role in Workers Compensation claims

When an employee suffers an injury or illness on the job, a medico legal specialist can assess and diagnose the condition, documenting its nature, severity, and potential impact on the individual’s ability to work and carry out daily activities. They also evaluate whether the condition is directly linked to the workplace or occupational hazards. Their expertise helps establish the connection between the condition and the individual’s work environment, providing essential evidence for workers’ compensation claims and legal proceedings.
Medico legal assessments in workers compensation cases involve reviewing the medical records, conducting physical examinations, and potentially ordering specialised tests or consultations. The aim is to determine the cause of the injury or illness, establish a connection to the workplace, and assess the extent of disability or impairment resulting from the condition.
Our medico legal specialists provide an objective evaluation of the condition and evaluation may involve considering occupational hazards, exposure to harmful substances, repetitive motions, ergonomic factors, or other workplace-related factors that could have contributed to the injury or illness and therefore rendered unfit to work.
Our medico legal reports help to establish the causal relationship between the condition and the workplace, clarifying the employee’s claim for benefits, medical treatment, rehabilitation, and potential compensation for lost wages or permanent disability.

360 Medico Legal ensures that the medical aspects of the condition are thoroughly assessed, documented, and connected to the individual’s work environment. This collaboration between medical and legal professionals helps injured or ill workers navigate the complex workers compensation system and obtain the necessary support, treatment, or any benefits they may be entitled to based on the assessment of their work-related condition.


The four stages of our process ensure that your Medico-Legal report is of the highest standard.



360 Medico Legal receives instructions from solicitors, insurers and case managers together with medical documents. The referrer is provided with a list of potential independent medical specialists. Often the enquiry needs a particular specialisation or field of practice, and 360 Medico Legal can assist with this.



An appointment is made with the client to visit our rooms. The 360 Medico Legal team ensures all necessary reports and medical information is available for the specialist.



The client attends our offices for their consultation with the independent medical specialist. To maximise efficiency, the client can see more than one specialist on the same day. Are you outside Perth? We also offer medico legal assessments via telehealth across Australia as well as in person at specific locations.



Our independent medico legal reports are completed by the specialist(s) and vetted by the in-house Quality Audit team - which is headed up by our CIR accredited & Registered Clinical Nurse Manager. The completed medico legal reports are then provided to the instructing referrer within two weeks of the final consultation.
