|What is a Work Injury Damages Claim?|
In addition to the "no fault" Worker Compensation scheme there is an entitlement by an injured worker to obtain lump sum compensation for “modified common law damages”.
To make such a claim you must be able to demonstrate on the balance of probabilities that the injury was sustained as a result of the fault of your employer.
You may be able to sue your employer as a result of your employer’s failure to take reasonable care of you whilst in the course of your employment. That is, that the employer was “at fault” in causing your accident.
