Making a Claim

A worker that suffers an injury at work requiring medical treatment or time off is entitled to make a compensation claim.

In May 2017, WorkCover WA launched four animated educational videos focused on educating scheme participants about injury management and return to work processes, including a video specific to making a workers’ compensation claim.

The ‘Making a claim’ video can be viewed here and outlines the steps an injured worker needs to take to make a workers’ compensation claim. View the video to find out more about claim entitlements, how an insurer makes a ‘decision about liability’ and what assistance is available.

If you are interested in watching the other videos in the suite, including ‘Case conferences’, ‘Return to work’ and ‘Return to work: employer guide’ please click here.
