Eligibility to Claim Damages

The most commonly asked question is, ‘am I eligible to receive entitlements’? The answer may be more generous than you think. Workers compensation applies to:

  • full-time, part-time and casual employees; and
  • apprentices and trainees

who have suffered a physical or mental injury in:

  • the course of employment; or
  • in an authorised recess; or
  • travelling for the purposes of employment (but not to and from work); or
  • while attending medical treatment or training

You may also be eligible if you are a sub-contractor or if you had a pre-existing injury or illness made worse by your employment.

Our friendly and approachable lawyers will identify your needs and provide you with up-to-date and carefully considered advice based on your individual circumstances.
