If you have suffered an injury or illness at work or because of your work, you may be entitled to make a workers compensation claim.
When it comes to workers compensation law in Queensland, there are two types of claims:
- Statutory compensation claims (no fault needs to be established)
- Common law compensation claims (fault or negligence on behalf of employer must be established)
