One of the many questions we get at GC Law regarding workers’ compensation claims and reimbursement of hospital treatment costs is “Who pays for my hospital bills if I’m injured at work?”
In Queensland, a patient does not have to pay for any treatment or accommodation in a public hospital except if the patient has a workers’ compensation claim or if the patient receives compensation arising out of a public liability claim.
If you are injured at work or in a public place and you receive compensation for your injuries, the insurance company must reimburse the public hospital for any treatment or accommodation costs.
The best way to ensure that your rights are protected is to contact a personal injury specialist lawyer as soon as you receive any injury in the course of your working environment.
By doing this, you get the best legal advice as to what you can and can’t claim and to what extent you may be liable for any costs for treatment.
