Workers’ compensation Queensland claim process 

Document and report your injury or illness to your employer 

It’s important to immediately inform your employer in writing about your work-related injury or illness and keep any information and documentation.

Seek medical treatment

Make a doctor's appointment – preferably with your personal doctor – and explain what has happened at work. It’s important the doctor documents everything thoroughly and accurately. If you believe your diagnosis hasn’t been captured correctly, it’s important you seek a second medical opinion. 

Phase 1: Lodge a statutory workers' compensation claim

This involves lodging your claim online with WorkCover QLD. You can make a claim for any injuries or illnesses related to your employment.

Phase 2: Submit a common law claim for compensation  

Once your statutory claim has been finalised, Shine Lawyers will work with you to ensure your common law claim (when your employer is at fault) form is submitted correctly and complies with strict time limitations.

We’ll build your claim and keep you informed

We will work with you to gather all the documentation and medical evidence required to support your claim. You focus on your recovery and rehabilitation, and we’ll take care of the rest while always keeping you in the loop.  

Once our investigations are complete, we will advise you of the best way forward to pursue your claim. 

Resolve your case

If your claim is successful, you will receive the compensation you deserve, so you can focus on your future. 

Remember that strict time limits apply. It’s always worth seeking an obligation-free initial consultation with workers’ compensation lawyers in Brisbane or Queensland so you can get the legal advice specific to your situation.
