CLass action NSW Workers Compensation
Topic: CLass action NSW Workers Compensation
Posted: 09/August/2012 at 07:54
For those who have been injured at work you must be familiar with the NSW workcover legislation that require an injured worker to have at least 15% of WPI (whole person permanent impairment)to claim compensation.
The law state that no worker with less than 15% can claim compensation for past,present and future loss of earning and medical expenses !!!
This law contradict directly the AUSTRALIAN constitution as well as the Commonwealth Constitution.
Since 1987 the NSW government has bit by bit modified the common laws and in doing so the NSW government has discriminated injured workers and took away their right to compensation.
I have talked to a law firm which, as I do, believe there is ground for a class action from injured workers who have missed on injury compensation because they were below the 15% WPI.
In addition I have contacted a firm that specialized in class action finances and are truly interested in this one.
The catch is that the law firm require at least 5 injured workers who have missed on compensation to come forward as a group to start the class action.
I am then appealing to anyone who had an injury at work and missed on compensation because of the 15% WPI limit to contact me here in first instance should you which to be included in the class action against NSW Government.
Hope to hear from lot of you very soon.
