If you get injured at work, your employer is required by law to pay for worker’s compensation payments to you. You could get hurt by:
The amount of the weekly payments you will receive is dependent on a number of factors including:
You will be paid a percentage of your normal weekly pay after a certain amount of time off these will depend on each state.
Your normal weekly pay based on what you have earned each week from your employment during the 12 months before your injury. It only includes regular payments which would have continued if you hadn’t been injured and includes:
If you have had a work-related injury that has resulted in a loss of earnings due to reduced hours, you may be entitled to a weekly payment from WorkCover or your employer’s insurer. Usually, you will be paid a percentage of your typical weekly pay.
After 12 months, if you have a permanent physical impairment that is greater than 10%, or a permanent primary psychological impairment that is greater than 15%, then you can possibly qualify for a lump sum reimbursement.
To be considered to have permanent impairment there are a number of different factors to consider. For example, incidents that lead to serious spinal cord injury, an amputation or permanently reduced mobility could be the defining factor in qualifying you for a lump sum entitlement.
