At Injury Legal, we are experts in workplace injury claims and we act on a no-win, no-fee basis.
If you’ve been injured at work, it is vitally important that your injuries and how they were suffered are accurately reported as soon as possible.
In Queensland, you have 6 months from the date of suffering a workplace injury to bring a workers’ compensation claim. If your injury occurred over a period of time you must lodge your workers’ compensation claim within 6 months of first seeking medical treatment for your injuries.
Your workers’ compensation claim must be accompanied by a Work Capacity Certificate and include details of how your injury occurred. But be careful, we see a lot of workers’ compensation claims rejected due to injured workers failing to provide sufficiently detailed (or accurate) information on how they were injured. Once that information is provided to the insurer, it’s very hard to undo.
If you can establish negligence/fault on the part of your employer (or anyone else) for your workplace injuries, you may also be able to pursue a civil claim for damages. A civil claim for damages has to be commenced within 3 years of the date of your injuries.
