Workcover Claims

At A Whole New Approach Pty Ltd, we understand the need to resolve these types of matters expeditiously for the benefit of our client.

Workcover is complex, you are entitled to pursue your own claim, it is a serious matter, get advice, get assistance, get representation. (employers do).

The government and insurance companies are not your friend when it come to claims, these bodies are represented by professionals, do the same.

We are not lawyers, we can assist you or /mediate with the employer in work related matters, and at conciliation or if you believe you have been victimised by your employer because you have lodged a claim. We will direct you to law firm if any legal matters need to be attended to.

All employees and some contractors are entitled to compensation for injuries and medical conditions sustained or aggravated as a result of their work under the Workcover Victoria Act. "Work" includes breaks, functions, training and business travel.

What can I make a Workcover claim for:

There are a number of things you can make a claim for, the main claims are for medical expenses, wages and lump sum compensation for your injury.

What if the employer and the insurer refuse to make payments for medical expenses and wages?

Contact A Whole New Approach Pty Ltd, we are aggressive and experienced workcover non-lawyer advocates, we will advise you of your options (free of charge). Where legal work or advice is required we will refer you to the appropriate law firm.

What if i am stressed or sexually harassed in the workplace?

Yes, you can bring a claim, providing your doctor is prepared to issue certificates of capacity. The claim will succeed if you can show the stress or medical condition (depression etc) was unreasonably caused by the employer and it was a significant contributing factor to your medical condition.

How do i make a claim?

The Accident Compensation Act 1985 is complex and requires the skill and assistance in these types of claims to achieve a successful outcome for you.
