When it comes to workers’ compensation claims in Queensland, claimants are entitled to a range of benefits to help them through the aftermath of a work-related injury. These entitlements include compensation for medical costs, which cover the expenses incurred for treatment, medications, hospital visits, and rehabilitation services. Furthermore, claimants are entitled to wage replacement, which ensures that they receive financial support during their recovery period when they are unable to work.
In addition to medical coverage and wage replacement, claimants are also entitled to rehabilitation services to facilitate their recovery and return to work. These services may include physical therapy, vocational training, and psychological support to help claimants regain their physical and mental well-being. It’s essential for claimants to be aware of these entitlements as they navigate the workers’ compensation claim process, ensuring they receive the support they need to recover from their work-related injury and resume their normal life and work activities.
