If you are injured at work in Queensland, you are legally entitled to compensation under Queensland law. If you believe you are eligible for compensation from an injury sustained at work, you should consult with a work injury lawyer as soon as possible to assess your case and provide advice on making a claim.
A workers’ compensation claim or WorkCover claim covers injuries and accidents caused by the negligence of an employer or co-workers or any third parties that you deal with at work.

If you are uncertain whether you are eligible for compensation, you will be more than likely entitled.
