Frequently Asked Questions

Part-time workers, casual workers and most subcontractors are covered by workers’ compensation schemes.

The state and federal laws vary in their time limits to submit a worker’s compensation claim. The sooner you can report an injury and seek legal advice, the better.

We can guide you through the process, but here is a simple overview of the key steps:
     
  1. Report your workplace injury to your employer as soon as possible within 30 days of becoming aware of the injury
  2.  
  3. Complete a workers’ compensation claim form, keep a copy for yourself and give the original to your employer
  4.  
  5. Get a medical certificate for worker’s compensation, keep a copy for yourself and give the original to your employer
  6.  
  7. Ensure your employer signs and dates the form on the day you give it to them
  8.  
  9. Lodge the claim form with the workers’ compensation authority

We would need to know your particular circumstances to determine your potential claim amount, however it would most likely be a percentage of your weekly earnings and the cost of reasonable medical expenses.

Work Injury Claims.

Injuries At Work

Depending on the cause of the injury, there are different claims that can be made.
Statutory benefits can compensate you for your time off work and your reasonable and necessary medical expenses associated with the injury.
If your injury occurred because of the negligence of the employer, whether it was through an act, or failure to act, you may be able to claim common law damages. This means that you could claim compensation for pain and suffering, loss of income, medical costs and other out of pocket expenses.

Injuries Related To Work

If you can demonstrate the relationship between your employment and the injury, claims may also be made for injuries suffered on the way to work, on your lunch break or when receiving treatment for a different work injury.
