Common Law Workers Compensation

If you have a work related injury which resulted from your employer’s negligence, there are certain circumstances in which you may make a common law personal injury claim or a workers compensation claim under common law.

What is workers compensation common law?

A WorkCover claim is brought under a “no-fault” idea of liability. However, a common law claim for damages, it is necessary for the worker to prove ‘fault’ in the form of negligence or breach of duty on the part of the employer.

If you have been injured at work, you are able to claim benefits from WorkCover. To obtain further compensation you must bring a common law claim, and will benefit from the assistance of a good common law contract lawyer.

A Workers Compensation policy will often also cover liability for any work related ‘common law’ claims by employees, such as common law claims for psychological injury. The extent to which a worker may bring a common law claim for damages varies from state to state.
