What can I claim?
Depending on your circumstances you may be able to claim one or several types of payments. Common payments include:
- Weekly payments – This is essentially a ‘reimbursement’ for the income you miss out on earning because of your injury.
- Medical expenses – Have you needed to visit your GP, an osteopath, physiotherapist, counsellor or other health practitioner?….Do you need to take medication?….Did you requie an x-ray, ultrasound, CT scan or MRI scan?. You may be eligible to have all of these expenses and more paid for.
- Domestic assistance – Have you had to call on help to mow the lawn, clean the bathroom, or go grocery shopping?. You may be entitled to have the costs of maintaining your home covered.
- Permanent Impairment – Have you been left permanently impaired by your injury?. Compensation may be available to you in a lump sum payment.
