FOUR WEEKS OFF FOR WORK INJURY CAN LEAD TO SUBSTANTIAL COMPENSATION
STOP OFF ON WAY HOME CAN “BURGER UP” ANY COMPO CLAIM
IF you are working and you get injured and you have four weeks off you probably have got a good claim for substantial compensation.
There’s all different sorts of compensation:
Car accidents are different from work accidents.
Horse accidents are different from slips and trips.
There is compensation attached to superannuation funds.
The whole area is a minefield though.
Some accidents need to prove fault.
With some accidents, fault doesn’t matter at all and particularly if you’re on a journey driving home from work.
But if you stop for a hamburger around the corner from home then you “burger up” the claim.
There’s also often permanent partial disability compensation attached to a superannuation fund.
There are some time limits that are like a guillotine and deadly: particularly with unidentified vehicles and uninsured and unregistered vehicles.
Your claim might be quite flimsy – that some unidentified vehicle ran you off the road and you got injured – but you can claim against a government department, called the nominal defendant, but don’t delay.
