What happens if my workers' compensation claim is accepted?
Current legislation determines the insurer must make a decision on an application within 20 business days of the application being lodged.
Once the insurer has assessed an application it will decide whether to accept or reject the application.
If your application is accepted you will be notified by the relevant insurer i.e. WorkCover or the self-insurer.
For the duration of your work-related injury or illness you must provide up to date Workers’ Compensation Regulator medical certificates to your employer and to WorkCover (or self-insurer).
