FAQ’s about Workers Compensation

What if no one was at fault?
To claim workers’ compensation no one needs to have been at fault as long as you are injured in a situation that is covered, for example while actually undertaking the activities for which you are employed, then you may be entitled to make a claim.

What if I was injured due to the actions of someone at work?
If someone else was at fault, then you might have an additional claim for that person’s negligence. Nowicki Carbone will advise you of all possible avenues for compensation at the initial consultation.

What if my injury or illness occurred a long time ago?
Strict time limitations apply to Workcover claims, so it is important for you to contact Nowicki Carbone’s work injury lawyers as soon as possible.
