How Does Workers’ Compensation Work in QLD?
Claiming workers’ compensation can be a complicated, involved and often an overwhelming process – and that’s why LHD Lawyers are committed to supporting you through it.
Queensland workers’ compensation involves you submitting a claim to WorkCover Queensland, or in the event your employer is self-insured, the self-insured unit of your employer who will assess your claim. Workcover Queensland or the self-insured unit is the provider of insurance for workplace injuries and covers employees for:
- weekly compensation (to cover their lost wages)
- medical expenses and medicines
- rehabilitation treatment
- travel expenses
- death benefits and funeral expenses
They will speak to your employer to obtain additional information, and a decision on the claim will be made up to 20 business days from the initial lodgment. If the outcome of the claim is positive, you’ll start to receive weekly compensation and/or cover your expenses resulting from the injury you sustained depending on the nature of your claim.
However, accessing these entitlements after being injured at work isn’t always straightforward.
