Military & Defence Force

Employee Injuries

Claims can be made by members of the Australian Defence Force including related persons, for injuries sustained during the course of their employment.

Related persons would include cadets, reservists or civilians involved in service related activities.

ARE YOU ELIGIBLE
TO MAKE A CLAIM?

ADF members, injured during the course of their employment and who are incapacitated for that employment, are entitled to receive incapacity payments. In addition, there is also coverage and payment of medical treatment expenses.

In the unfortunate event that an ADF member passes during the course of their employment as a result of injuries sustained in that employment then there is compensation available to dependents.

WHAT ARE YOU
ABLE TO CLAIM?

Entitlements to compensation arise under the Military Rehabilitation and Compensation Act. It provides for claims for compensation for injuries suffered on or after 1 July 2004. Claims for injuries which occurred prior 1 July 2004 are governed by the provisions of the Safety Rehabilitation and Compensation Act and the Veterans Entitlements Act 1986.

The Military Rehabilitation and Compensation Act does draw a distinction between injuries that may have been suffered by the service member in the course of war like service, non-war like service or peacetime service.

Lump sum payments for members who are injured whilst engaged in war like or non-war like services will receive a higher rate of compensation than members who are injured in peacetime service.

WHEN SHOULD YOU CONSULT A LAWYER ABOUT MAKING A CLAIM?

You should consult a lawyer as soon as possible after suffering injury at work.

WHAT IS YOUR
NEXT STEP?

Simply telephone our office and make an appointment to consult with a workers compensation specialist.
