WorkCover Claims

work cover claimsWorkers who are injured at work, or because of their work, can seek to claim workers’ compensation from WorkCover Queensland. The types of injuries that can be claimed for include:

  • Physical injuries;
  • Psychiatric or psychological disorders;
  • Diseases;
  • Aggravation of a pre-existing condition; and
  • Death from an injury or disease.

The WorkCover Claims Process

Employers should ensure that they are fully appraised of the claims raised to assess whether there is a need to object to the claim. Generally, when a WorkCover claim is raised, an employer will be provided with a copy of the employee’s Application for Compensation. This would also include any supporting information from the employee. These documents effectively set out the basis for the claim brought by the employee against the employer.

It is imperative that employers carefully consider, and where appropriate, seek legal advice regarding claims raised by their workers. It is important to note that Employers can submit a response to WorkCover addressing the basis of any objection to the claim. Usually including all relevant documentation or evidence in support of the objection. Incorrect handling of these issues may have adverse consequences for your business.
