Workers Compensation Claims
Under the Workers Compensation Scheme, if you are injured at work, you can still have a claim for compensation, including:
- Compensation for medical expenses incurred as a result of a work related injury;
- Liability as to whether your injury is work related;
- A Lump Sum payment for permanent impairment, if you satisfy the necessary threshold of 11% Whole Person Impairment.
Due to the changes to the Workers Compensation Law, an injured worker is only entitled to a one-off claim for permanent impairment. However, an injured worker may consider a further deterioration claim if an earlier Lump Sum Claim had been made prior to 19 June, 2012. If you have previously received a Lump Sum Claim, we can discuss.
A Matthews Folbigg Compensation Lawyer can approach the Workers Compensation Independent Review Office (WIRO) for funding as to legal costs. Claimants should note that a claim can only be made by a Lawyer who is WIRO approved.
