In Western Australia, the right to make a claim for workers’ compensation is available to anyone who has been injured or become ill at work due to their work duties, generally, regardless of who is at fault. Anvil Legal Workers Compensation Lawyers Perth are experts in work accidents and workplace injury claims.
Employees may be entitled to compensation payments if your worker’s comp claim is accepted. These payments partly make up for any loss of earnings and other compensable expenses applicable. Medical expenses, rehabilitation expenses, and travel expenses are examples of the sorts of expenses that can be claimed. Please be advised that limits do apply to the type, amount and value of the compensation that you can receive.
WorkCover WA is the government agency responsible for regulating the workers’ compensation scheme in Western Australia. They do this under the Workers Compensation and Injury Management Act 1981.
