Work injury damages claim

Work injury damages claim

If your injuries are assessed at greater than 15% WPI, you may have a work injury damages claim against your employer if your injuries occurred as a result of an unsafe system of employment or negligence.

If you have a work injury damages claim, you can pursue a claim for past and future economic losses including losses of superannuation. In this way you can receive a significant lump sum damages out of the workers compensation system.

Time limits apply

A workers compensation claim must be made within six months after the injury or accident or in the case of death within six months of the date of death.

A work injury damages claim must be made within three years of the date of the injury.

A workers compensation claim can be made outside the period of six months up to a maximum period of three years if the worker has a reasonable explanation for the delay.
