Work claim injury process – how it works 

  1. You have suffered an injury or developed a disease at work or because of your work
  2. Immediately seek first aid if needed, and see your own doctor
  3. Ask your employer doctor for a First Certificate of Capacity and make a copy. Complete it, keep a copy, and give the original to your employer
  4. Complete a Workers’ Compensation Claim Form. Keep a copy and give the original to your employer, along with the original First Certificate of Capacity.
  5. Your employer has five working days to complete their part of the Claim Form, and lodge it and the First Certificate with their workers’ compensation insurer
  6. Within 14 days of receiving the documents, your employer’s insurer must notify you that your claim has been accepted, is disputed, or is pending. It would be ‘pending’ if your employer’s insurer needs more information to accept or dispute your claim 

Your employer or their workers’ compensation insurer may refer you to a doctor that they choose, before deciding on their acceptance of your claim. There are time limits and rules surrounding these medical referrals, which your work accident lawyers can help you with.

Excellent service from start to finish. Stephen, Bianca, Michelle and Mr. Pratt were upfront from the beginning and always kept me informed throughout the entire process.
