Hi, I am a self-employed tradesman ( sole trader). I was painting a house for a volume builder (sub-contract) when at the end of the day, when I was packing up, I slipped on the front porch/entry of the house and caused a lot of injury to my knee, back, head and right arm. I am in a lot of pain and my mobility is restricted. I have put in a claim for workcover and some people are saying that I am on my own as I have not a total of 80% wages from this builder. A solicitor l saw would not give me advice until I was sure about the wages because he said to me that if my wages, since I started with this builder until time of injury, is not 80% of my wages i.e. 80% of my wages must have come from this builder I cannot put in a claim. l called worksafe and they told me basically the same, but one other consultant from worksafe said that l can still claim if l pass their assessment tool online. I did pass it and it said basically that, "according to your answers (information) you provided, it is likely you are a worker of the employer/hirer". Can someone please help me on this and also could you please refer me to the best legal office in Melb to help me? It will be greatly appreciated.
