Work Injury Compensation is a legal advisory service.

Making a Claim

Who'll pay your compensation?

If you are injured at work you may be entitled by law to make a claim for compensation.

Your employer is insured, so your employer is required by law to take out insurance cover against staff accidents.

The Insurance co. covers you! This means that your employer's insurance company pays out the compensation, and not your employer.

Did you have an Accident at Work or During Work Hours?
 
  • If you have suffered an injury at work, the first thing to do is Report the Incident to your employer and follow company procedures.
  • Then, you must seek immediate Medical Attention at which time you should ask the Doctor for a Workers Compensation Medical Certificate. You will need this before you can lodge your 'Application for Compensation' with WorkCover Queensland.
  • The next important step is to Seek Legal Advice from a work injury Lawyer to discuss your Queensland Workers Compensation Claim, particularly if the injury you have suffered is permanent and / or your injury is a result of negligence.
What is Workers Compensation?
 
Workers Compensation is a compulsory Government scheme to provide employers security and workers with access to insurance if they are injured on the job. If you have suffered a permanent injury at work, WorkCover Queensland can arrange an assessment to measure the permanent impairment and a lump sum offer may be made.
 
Before you accept WorkCover's recommended lump sum offer ...Seek Legal Advice.
 

This isn't about a so-called "compensation culture", it is about your legal and moral right to compensation where you have suffered as a result of the negligence of others.

 When you receive a "Notice of Assessment" or "letter of offer" from Work Cover Queensland, you should seek legal advice as you may be entitled to a "Common Law Claim".  In Queensland, if you sign the Notice of Assessement you will be prevented from pursuing a "Common Law" damages claim. This is why it is recommended you seek legal advice before you sign or accept anything!
