What to know about workers' compensation

In Australia, if you've been injured on the job—or if an existing injury or disease has been worsened in the course of your employment—you might be eligible to make a claim for workers' compensation through WorkCover.

WorkCover is a type of insurance that pays compensation when a worker is injured. Making sure you get your full compensation payout can be a complicated and involved process; each state and territory has its own laws, and there's no guarantee that your insurance company will tell you about all the compensation you're entitled to.

Maurice Blackburn's WorkCover claims lawyers have in-depth knowledge of Australia's complex compensation laws and on the best ways to maximise your claim. Contact us today to speak with an expert who can give you advice and get your claim started.
