    Things to know about workers’ compensation in NSW

    Workers compensation insurance provides compensation to people who have become injured or ill in the line of work. It is compulsory for New South Wales employers and is funded by their contributions.

    Generally, insurance may cover:

    • replacement of lost income
    • medical, rehabilitation and treatment costs
    • lump-sum compensation in the event of a serious injury.
    • lost superannuation entitlements
    • damages for pain and suffering
    • economic loss

    However, it’s not always easy for employees to access these entitlements after being injured at work. For help and advice regarding your situation call 02 9188 2023 or start your claim online.

    All too often our solicitors speak with victims who are being denied their rights to workers compensation. Some of the most common reasons are:

    • A large number of the companies workforce are currently on workers comp
    • a logged injury could result in a lost-time for the employer and affect them pricing future contacts
    • management is more concerned about rising insurance premiums than their employee’s wellbeing

    Whatever the reason, this is not your problem and you should not be denied your legal right to workers compensation because it’s not convenient for your employer.
