Worker Compensation Compensation
Work accidents occur everyday in Australian workplaces and as a result can involve minor or serious injuries to employees and workers. To prevent work accidents from occurring, employers are under a legal duty to ensure that the workplace is kept safe and that the health and wellbeing of employees and workers in the workplace is a maintained priority.
Workplace Accidents Can Be Very Distressing
Workplace accidents can be very distressing and can have an effect on a worker both physically and mentally. There are many different types of accidents that can occur in the workplace, which are usually the result of poor safety standards and procedures, employees not receiving adequate job training or lack of job supervision from management.
The most common injuries that are caused from workplace accidents include injuries to the head, neck and back, lower limb injuries, fractures and sprains and industrial deafness. In addition, work accidents may also involve mental and psychological injuries such as post traumatic stress disorder. Overall, the type of injury that can occur will depend on the severity and type of work accident involved.
If you have suffered an injury, harm or loss as the result of a workplace accident, then you are entitled to make a claim for compensation. The purpose of compensation is to cover any physical injuries, medical costs, loss of income from time off work or future economic loss as the result of the workplace accident.
