WorkCover claims process flow chart
Below is a WorkCover claims process flow chart that outlines the WorkCover process in Victoria.
On the left, you have the ‘no fault entitlements’.
These are entitlements can be claimed by a person regardless as to whether there was any negligence on behalf of another person that contributed to the injury.
The no fault entitlements are: medical and like expenses, weekly payments and an impairment benefit lump sum.
On the right hand side, there’s one entitlement: a common law entitlement.
As indicated in the flow chart, this is a fault based claim. That is, in order to succeed, it requires you to show negligence on behalf of another party.
