What Should I Do if I Am Injured or Suffer an Illness Due to Work?
As soon as possible:
1. Report the workplace injury or incident to both your employer, doctor and WorkCover Queensland.
2. Ensure you lodge a claim for WorkCover’s compensation statutory benefits within six months in order to protect your rights.
3. Contact Kerin Lawyers to obtain advice on your rights and benefits.
WorkCover is a longstanding statutory scheme to pay compensation to injured workers. It is compulsory for all employers. Payments come from a huge statutory insurance fund. Your employer or boss (unless they are self-insured) is backed by this fund. Your benefits do not come out of your employer’s own pocket.
What to Do if Your Employer Will Not Process Your Compensation Claim
You may contact WorkCover directly on 1300 362 128 to make a claim for weekly benefits and payment of medical expenses. You must see your doctor and get a WorkCover medical certificate. Please keep copies of these documents
If you have any further questions, do not hesitate to contact us on 1300 LAWYER.
