Workers Compensation in Western Australia
Anvil Legal can help you to get all of the compensation you deserve through the workers compensation WA legislative scheme. As employers are required by this scheme to hold workers compensation insurance an injured worker has entitlements under the Workers Compensation and Injury Management Act 1981 for weekly payments (wages) and medical treatment.
Once your claim has been accepted you may be entitled to:
- Weekly payments (wages) for periods of incapacity; and/or
- Reasonable medical expenses
Understanding Your Rights under the Workers Compensation WA Scheme
The Act provides the entitlements and obligations that an injured worker can expect following the making of a workers compensation claim in WA. Although the Act is written with the purpose of protecting an injured worker it is not the easiest piece of legislation to understand.
Anvil Legal has experience in providing advice on the workers compensation WA businesses are required to hold as a safety net for employees. We understand the burden a workplace injury can have on both you and your family and therefore we offer assistance and advice that may alleviate any stress associated with the legislative processes.
Through a clearer understanding of the law and its application to the injured worker we can assist with WorkCover applications and Common Law claims to make sure you receive your entitlements and comply with any obligations.
By contacting Anvil Legal for a free phone consultation we can explain how some workers compensation WA cases have changed how the legislation is now interpreted.
