LGIS is committed to ensuring that all injured workers are informed of their rights and responsibilities with regard to workers compensation as soon as possible.
An injured worker information pack is sent directly to the injured worker by LGIS for an accepted lost time injury claim. A letter is also sent to you to advise that the injured worker has received the injured worker information pack and inform you of the actions required to ensure the return to work process can commence as quickly as possible.
To assist workers with gaining a greater understanding of the injury management process we encourage our members to make the injury management and the worker (pdf) readily available to a worker after an injury.
The WorkCover WA – Workers Compensation and Injury Management booklet (pdf) is a guide to help injured workers understand how the workers compensation system operates in WA, how best to manage their claim for compensation and how to ensure the best possible outcome following an injury.
Should further advice or assistance be required please contact your LGIS injury management consultant or contact Lauren Wojas, Principal Injury Management Consultant on 9483 8888.
