If you have suffered a work injury in Victoria, you may be entitled to compensation through the WorkCover scheme. Workers’ compensation benefits may include:
- payment of all your injury-relates expenses;
- reimbursement of wages owing to you during the time you were away from work because of the injury;
- lump-sum payment for any permanent impairment that you sustained as a result of the injury.
On top of these bebefits, you may also be entitled to what’s called, a “common law claim.” This type of claim may be available to you in circumstances in which your injury was a result of the negligence of someone else. These type of claims usually result in significantly more compensation for you. In the event that your injury was a result of your employer’s negligence, it’s important to note that this compensation is paid from their insurance and not them personally.
