About Us

Cubela & Co are lawyers and employee compensation consultants.

We help to manage worker compensation claims by offering support and guidance to employers and self-insurers in Australia. We also provide services to claims agents, lawyers and government.

With 25 years extensive experience in the industry, we’re well placed to handle complex cases and regulatory guidelines – we know what good workers compensation claims management looks like.

Our work is mainly focused on supporting employers in Victoria, where WorkSafe estimates an average compensation claim is in the region of $109,821.

Dealing with WorkCover premium or claims management costs can be time-consuming. Many of our clients struggle to navigate the psychological impact of dealing with ill or injured employees.

We started Cubela & Co because as lawyers, we understand the challenges faced when dealing with claim management obligations.
