Do you know how to lodge a WorkCover Claim?

To lodge a workers’ compensation claim, commonly known as a WorkCover claim, the process typically involves the following steps:

  1. Report the incident: Immediately notify your employer or supervisor about the workplace injury or illness. Make sure to report the incident in writing and provide details of the incident, including the date, time, location, and a description of how the injury occurred.
  2. Seek medical attention: See you GP as soon as possible. Inform your GP, your injury is work-related, as they will need to document it accordingly. Request a medical certificate and retain copies of all medical records, reports, and receipts related to the treatment. Depending on your employer, your supervisor or return to work co-ordinator may also attend your GP appointments.
  3. Complete the claim form: Obtain the workers’ compensation claim form from your employer or the relevant workers’ compensation authority in your state. Fill out the form accurately, providing all necessary information about the incident, your employment details, and the nature of the injury or illness. Your employer will usually assist you in filling out this form.
  4. Submit the claim form: Submit the completed claim form to your employer or the workers’ compensation authority as per the requirements in your jurisdiction. Ensure you keep copies of all documents for your records. The insurer will usually issue you with a claim number within 24-48 hours. Once a case manager is assigned, they may call you to discuss your case and offer assistance depending on the extent of your injury.
  5. Cooperate with investigations: In some cases, the workers’ compensation insurer may conduct an investigation to verify the details of the claim. Cooperate fully with any inquiries, provide additional information or evidence if requested, and maintain open communication with the insurer throughout the process.
  6. Follow medical advice and treatment: Attend all recommended medical appointments and follow the prescribed treatment plan. This includes attending any rehabilitation programs or therapies recommended by your healthcare provider. Physiotherapy plays an important role in your recovery. Find a reputable Physiotherapy clinic or an experienced Physiotherapist to assist you in your recover.
  7. Maintain records and documentation: Keep a record of all communication, documentation, and receipts related to your workers’ compensation claim. This includes medical reports, invoices, and any correspondence with your employer or the workers’ compensation insurer.
  8. Seek legal advice if needed: If you encounter difficulties during the claims process, have concerns about the handling of your claim, or require guidance, you may consider consulting with a workers’ compensation lawyer who can provide legal advice and representation.

It’s important to note that the specific process and requirements for lodging a workers’ compensation claim can vary depending on your jurisdiction and local laws. It is recommended to consult the relevant workers’ compensation authority or seek legal advice to ensure you understand and comply with the specific requirements in your area.
