It can sometimes be difficult to know you have the right to claim workers compensation. It doesn’t matter if you were injured at your workplace or during your time employed, you may still have a right to claim compensation.
It is important to understand that if you have suffered from a workplace accident, you must tell your employer as soon as possible. Strict time limits apply to workplace compensation. Our compensation experts will give you peace of mind knowing all deadlines and time limits are managed and met.
