What is Workers Compensation?
Everyone has the right to a safe working environment but, sadly, this is not always the case and many people are injured at work every year. Workers Compensation helps those suffering from a workplace injury receive the compensation they deserve. Covered by the Workers Compensation Act 1951 (ACT), any worker who suffers from an injury or disease arising from or during their employment has (in most cases) a right to compensation.
Work injury damages claims
It is important to understand how the law works and that you follow the right process in the case of a work injury damages claim. Fortunately, the ACT Workers Compensation system is more generous than in other jurisdictions. The downside to this is that it is also more complex. Also, as with many areas of the law, it’s constantly changing. Professional help is essential to ensuring you put the best case forward to achieve proper compensation.
