Workers Compensation

Workers’ compensation schemes are designed to compensate you if you need medical treatment, rehabilitation or time off to recover after being injured at work. It also covers the costs if you get sick from your work.

All employers in Australia are required by law to have workers compensation insurance for their employees. Even if an employer fails to have insurance, the Authority will continue to cover the worker who was injured and seek recovery against the employer.


The legislation is intended to provide early treatment of workers injuries to assist injured workers  to return to employment as soon as possible.

If you have suffered an injury at work, then contact Longton Compensation Lawyers for the help you need to get your maximum entitlements.
