What is a work injury?

Do I have the right to claim compensation for a work injury?

 If you have been injured or had an accident in the course of your employment, or an accident on your way to or from work or during a work break, you may be entitled to workers’ compensation or common law damages, or both. You have the right to seek compensation if injured.

Injuries at, or to or from work are very common and there is no need to be stoic and soldier on. 

How much compensation you will get is not an easy answer as tied to your specific injuries and the type of injury. 

However, we can help identify if you firstly can claim compensation and how much you may get. You’re welcome to chat, call or email us and we’ll be glad to assess your claim.

Unfortunately, what often appears to be a minor injury following an accident, can end up being quite a debilitating injury over time.

We’ve seen enough injuries over the years to know, it costs nothing to check and assess if you have a claim and better to check than not.
