Workplace Injuries

INJURED AT WORK?
A “worker” who suffers an “injury” arising out of or in the course of employment may be entitled to compensation.

A worker who sustains a workplace injury may have a statutory entitlement to compensation pursuant to WorkCover no-fault scheme and common law damages where serious injury and negligence can be established.

Transport Accidents

INJURED IN A MOTOR VEHICLE ACCIDENT?
A person injured in a transport accident is entitled to compensation if:

  • the accident occurred in Victoria or, if in another state or territory, the accident involved a Victorian registered motor vehicle; and
  • at the time of the accident the person was the driver of, or a passenger in, the registered motor vehicle and was a resident of Victoria.
  • ‘Transport accident’ means an incident directly caused by the driving of motor car or motor vehicle, railway train or tram.

Total and Permanent Disablement Claims

HAVE YOU BEEN SERIOUSLY INJURED?
Normally superannuation entitlements cannot be accessed until retirement age. However, where an injury or illness is such that a member of a superannuation fund is unable to work in an occupation which that person is suited by reason of training, education and experience, it may be possible to access superannuation benefits by reason of total and permanent disablement.
