Understanding workcover claims

If you've been injured at work, you're entitled to file a workers' compensation claim and receive benefits like medical treatment, replacement wages, rehabilitation and more. However, strict time limits apply to these claims.

If your injury was caused by an unsafe workplace or practice, you may also be able to pursue a work injury claim for common law damages, which essentially aim to address the impact of your injuries on your future employment. The statutory worker's compensation system will not do this.

What to expect when your work cover ends

Your WorkCover claim ends when your injuries are stable or at maximum medical improvement.

You'll get a Notice of Assessment with a lump sum offer from WorkCover or your self-insured employer. If your impairment is below 20% and you accept the offer, you waive your right to pursue a common law claim, so if you've received a Notice of Assessment and offer, it's critical to seek legal support.

When your WorkCover claim ends and you start a common law claim, it can take nine months or more to finish. We can help you obtain income protection and/or TPD claims from your super fund to support you financially while waiting for your common law claim to settle.
