What Does Workers’ Compensation Cover?

What Does Workers’ Compensation Cover?

Every employer in Western Australia is required by law to have workers compensation insurance, which protects workers in the case of a work-related injury or injury sustained at work.

Workers Compensation covers a range of expense requirements that may occur as a result of a work-related injury. For example, medical expenses as a result of the treatment required from the injury and rehabilitation. Workers Compensation can also help with the return to work and helping you when days off from work are required due to your injury. It also covers a loss of wages when you are incapacitated for work as a result of your injury. There are many types of workplace injuries covered by workers’ compensation which can mean you are entitled to compensation to assist you in getting back to full strength and returning to work quickly.

Ultimately, if you’ve been injured in the workplace or if your psychological health has been affected by your work, you may be eligible to make a claim for workers’ compensation.
