Injured at work?
Get help so you can get going again – and enjoy your life
If you’re injured while at work or suffer a work-related or a repetitive strain injury, you may be entitled to make a worker’s compensation or WorkCover claim. WorkCover has helped thousands of people receive the compensation they deserve.
A worker’s compensation claim or WorkCover claim covers injuries and accidents caused by the negligence of an employer, co-worker, or any other third parties that you deal with at work. The WorkCover or worker’s compensation scheme covers injured workers who are casual, part-time and full-time employees.
Do you actually have a claim for
Workplace injuries can be physical or psychological. Workplace injury lawyers can represent you in cases that range from serious illness, injury or damage (including amputations, fractures and brain injuries) to strains and sprains (including wrist repetitive strain injury).
It also covers psychological injuries that may arise from witnessing a traumatic event at work, as well as events like bullying and harassment.

Work Accidents. Did you know that you might have additional cover through your superannuation fund?
If you’ve been injured at work, you may have an additional right to make a claim through your superannuation fund, if you have a policy for total and permanent disability cover, trauma, or income protection. Many people don’t realise they even have this type of insurance in their super.
Working out whether you can claim can be tricky. Each policy has a different period in which you must notify the insurer of your injury or illness in order to claim, as well as different definitions in which you must satisfy in order to have your claim admitted by the insurer.
Often superannuation funds reject claims by policyholders who are rightly entitled to compensation. We can assist you to find out where you stand and determine if you have a good chance of success in making a claim.
