Eligibility To Claim Workers’ Compensation
The Workers Compensation Act governs your rights to claim workers comp, which includes coverage for work-related injuries or diseases. If you have suffered an injury or illness as a result of your employment, you have the right to claim compensation from your employer.
To claim workers compensation, you must have been injured during the course of your employment or during any travel required for your work. This can be a physical or psychological injury. It is important to know your work rights and seek advice from a Workers compensation lawyer.
What You Are Entitled To Claim
If you have suffered a work-related injury or illness in New South Wales, you may be entitled to claim compensation for loss of income, medical and rehabilitation expenses, and a lump sum for permanent impairment.
Additionally, the Workers Compensation Independent Review Office can cover legal costs associated with your claim under WorkCover, ensuring that you have the legal support you need to receive the compensation you deserve.
If your injury was caused by employer negligence, you may also be eligible to claim common law damages. Common law damages costs are not covered by the Workers Compensation Independent Review office, however, you can claim the scale legal costs from the insurer.
If you have been unlawfully terminated from your employment following a workplace injury or compensation claim, we can help you claim WorkCover benefits and protect your rights under labour law. Contact us for legal assistance to claim WorkCover and exercise your work rights.
