Frequently Asked Questions

Q: If I'm injured at work, when can I apply for compensation?

If an employee is injured carrying out their duties, and the work undertaken was a significant contributing factor towards the injury or disease suffered, a worker may be able to sue for damages provided they are able to show that an employer was negligent.

However, it’s important to note that most employees will have basic WorkCover benefits available to them in the form of weekly payments and medical treatment, even if the injury was due to their own actions.
