Plaintiff legal costs in dependency claims policy


What it contains

This policy outlines WorkSafe's approach to claimants' entitlement to legal costs incurred in connection with claims for lump sum compensation following the death of a worker where the amount of compensation is determined by WorkSafe and not by a court.

This policy relates to compensation paid under either s92 or s92A of the Accident Compensation Act 1985 or under Division 8 of Part 5 of the Workplace Injury Rehabilitation and Compensation Act.
