Legal RSS Feed

Get the most out of your work injury compensation. Accidents will happen; they are simply a part of life. Unfortunately, sometimes those accidents occur on the job, further complicating an already painful experience. If youre injured on the job there are steps youҒll need to take to make sure that your claim is filed properly, so that you will receive the full amount of your accident at work compensation. When youre hurt on the job getting well and still being able to provide for your family are important, so itҒs critical you know the rules and follow them.

Report the Accident.
It sounds silly to even mention to report the accident, but youd be surprised to know the amount of workers who never actually file a formal report with their employer or fail to do so in writing. It doesnҒt matter who witnessed the accident or if its common knowledge that it occurred. You must file an injury accident claim in writing with either WorkCover or directly with your employer within 12 months. Also make sure you keep a copy for your own records.

See a doctor as soon as possible.
You will need to seek medical attention as soon as possible to have your on the job injuries properly assessed, and to comply with most employers request that you receive an approved medical certificate if you are found unable to return to work. Get a copy of your medical certificate for WorkCover, your employer, and yourself.

Fill out all required forms.
Once you are found to be unable to return to work you should complete any required workerҒs compensation forms provided to you by your employer or their insurance company. If you are unable to get any of the forms that you need, you can download them online at the WorkCover website. Remember just as with all of your documents, to keep a copy for yourself.

Stay in contact with your employer and WorkCover.
Its important that you remain available to inquiries by your employer and WorkCover, even if you are no longer able to work. You may be contacted for further information regarding your occupational injuries or to verify information that you submitted.After your case has been reviewed youҒll receive a "Notice of Assessment", do not sign this document without seeking advice from your lawyer.

Following these steps will help you avoid costly mistakes and delays in having your work injury compensation paid in full.
