If you were injured at work
Learn what workers' compensation can cover, and how to make a claim.
If your injury happened at work, you may be eligible for workers' compensation, which could include support for:
- lost wages
- medical, hospital and rehabilitation fees
- return to work assistance costs
- lump sum payments for permanent impairment.
The Fair Work Ombudsman has information on payments and leave while on workers' compensation.
If you want to make a complaint or have a dispute with an insurer over a claim, the Independent Review Office (IRO) can help. They can also advise on:
- what types of workers' compensation is available
- weekly income support payments
- how to make a claim
- obtaining free legal services.
Regulation of workers compensation in NSW is overseen by the independent State Insurance Regulatory Authority (SIRA).
They can help you find information on what you can claim for and how to make a claim.
