Workers Compensation Claims

Had an accident at work? What to know if you have a claim for Workers Compensation?

It is compulsory for all employers to hold suitable insurance for their employees dependent on different compensation schemes for each State/Territory.

This scheme covers casual and permanent employees, full-time and part-time employees and in some cases self-employed workers. Even if the employer doesn’t have workers compensation insurance, you may still be able to make a claim. Some workers, such as those under labour hire, may be able to claim against the host employer’s or other people’s public liability insurance too.

To be eligible for a Workers Compensation Claim you must have suffered one or more of these injuries

  • Injuries that were caused directly as a result from work
  • Diseases caused by work
  • Pre-existing conditions that are made worse by work
  • Injuries suffered while travelling as part of work
  • Injuries sustained whilst having medical treatment for a separate work related injury
