Workers Compensation

for Union Members

Any worker part of a union has an entitlement to engage their lawyer of choice if injured at work.

ARE YOU ELIGIBLE
TO MAKE A CLAIM?

Any worker injured at work is entitled to lodge a workers compensation claim.

WHAT ARE YOU
ABLE TO CLAIM?

The Commission has jurisdiction to deal with the following disputes which may arise as between a worker and insurer:

  • Claims for weekly benefits (wages);
  • Allocation of suitable duties following a work injury where there has been disagreement about the type of duties or the extent of the duties to be performed;
  • Medical, hospital and related expenses;
  • Liability and quantum of claim for permanent impairment compensation;
  • Pain and suffering compensation which is available for exempt workers;
  • Compensation for death of a worker;
  • Compensation for damage to any personal property;
  • Compensation for domestic assistance required by the injured worker;
  • Degree of permanent impairment resulting from the injury.

WHEN SHOULD YOU CONSULT A LAWYER ABOUT MAKING A CLAIM?

Following an injury at work it is important that the worker report the injury at the earliest opportunity. The claim is then passed on by the employer to the workers compensation insurer.

If the insurer accepts the claim, as occurs in most cases, the worker will be paid for periods of absence from work and reimbursed medical expenses.

In the event that the insurer disputes the claim and declines same a review of the decision can be sought. Should the insure maintain the decision to decline the claim proceedings can be brought in the Workers Compensation Commission.
