Physical Injury – Work Injury Claim Brisbane Team


Physical Work Injury

We are a work injury claim Brisbane team who are in providing help with workers compensation claims. WorkCover workers compensation claims are available to people who have sustained a physical injury as a result of their work.  The time following an injury can be extremely stressful, so we’re here to help guide you through the process with easy to understand advice that’s tailored to your specific circumstances. 

This cover can apply to people who have developed an injury as a result of their work, or who have a pre-existing condition that worsened due to their work.  It applies to full-time, part-time and casual employees, as well as subcontractors.

 Workplace injuries could include:

  • Cuts and lacerations
  • Broken bones
  • Musculoskeletal injuries
  • Industrial hearing loss
  • Repetitive strain injury (RSI)
  • Injury caused by faulty equipment.

Getting started

It’s important to start your workers compensation claim sooner rather than later, as there are limits on how long after the initial injury you are able to submit a claim.  Of course, this depends on the type of injury.  A cut hand requiring stitches is immediately obvious, where a repetitive strain injury might take months to develop.  Once you’re aware of the injury, you’ll need to notify your employer and get a medical certificate from your doctor outlining your injury.  Make sure to mention it’s a work injury, as this changes the process on the doctors end.

What may be covered

A workers compensation payment will generally cover the medical expenses associated with the workplace injury and a weekly percentage of your usual earnings.  In cases where you are unable to continue working as a result of the injury, you may be eligible for a lump sum payment.
