The WorkCover scheme provides that you are entitled to weekly payments of compensation where you suffer incapacity resulting from your work injury. There are however, many technical conditions that exist in the law that can result in a claim for weekly payments being rejected, or an existing entitlement terminated.
If your WorkCover insurer rejects your claim for weekly payments, seeks to terminate your existing entitlement to weekly payments, or makes a determination regarding your level of weekly payments with which you disagree, you should seek immediate advice.
It is important for you to know that many determinations of a WorkCover insurer can be challenged. We can advise you of your chances of successfully challenging that determination and what that would involve.
The scheme surrounding workers compensation and your entitlements is complex and there are strict time limits that apply. It is important that you get appropriate legal advice from the outset to ensure that your rights are protected.
We can help you navigate the scheme, maximise your entitlements and make the decisions that are right for your future.
