In case of an accident that has taken place within your workplace, your employer might already have a compensation insurance that may assist you. Under the legal scheme of WorkCover, you may be entitled to weekly compensations, medical expenditures, and a lump sum for the impairment regardless of which party is at fault. The Workers’ Compensation legal scheme will cover:
- Permanent or Casual Employees
- Part-Time & Full-Time Employees
- Few Self-Employed Workers
- People Considered Workers (work experience students, jurors, volunteers)
This type of compensation falls under the umbrella of employment law. Depending on your particular case, the process of a legal workers’ compensation can become variably complicated.
