What To Do If Workcover Rejects Injury Claim In Qld
What happens if WorkCover or the self-insurer rejects my workers' compensation claim?
In some cases, WorkCover Queensland may reject an application for workers' compensation benefits, a specific injury, or what benefits should be paid in respect to a work injury. Where this occurs, there are rights of review of such decision to the regulatory body, the Workers' Compensation Regulator (previously Q-COMP), or to the Medical Assessment Tribunal.
It is very important to note that strict time limits apply when seeking a review of a rejection of a workers' compensation claim, injury, provision of treatment or payment of wage benefits. You only have three months from the date of receiving WorkCover's decision to apply for review of WorkCover's decision.
