Your eligibility for lump sum compensation will depend on the level of your permanent impairment. Generally speaking, you are only entitled to lump sum compensation if your whole person impairment for a physical injury is assessed at 11% or greater, or your whole person impairment for a psychological injury is assessed at 15% or greater. There is no threshold for physical injuries sustained by police officers, ambulance officers or fire fighters.
You may only make one claim for lump sum compensation after 19 June 2012.
Our expert lawyers will advise you on your entitlement to lump sum compensation and arrange for your whole person impairment to be assessed by an independent medical specialist.
