Legal costs and disbursements will not be paid until resolution or final determination of the claim or dispute for which the funding was granted. This includes but is not limited to proceedings which have been discontinued in the Workers Compensation Commission or where a claim or investigation is unable to proceed as the injured worker has not reached maximum medical improvement.
The ALSP in these circumstances is entitled to only one set of legal costs.
Payment of interim invoices for disbursements will only be considered in exceptional circumstances, such as an ALSP experiencing extreme financial hardship or where there have been significant delays in the resolution of the dispute.
When submitting tax invoices to WIRO, it is essential that the amount invoiced for professional fees is in accordance with the Grant provided to you.
