What Is a Workplace Injury and Am I Eligible for Workers Compensation?
Work-related injuries may include injuries that are sustained at work, while performing duties for your employment, or while travelling between workplaces.
Workplace injuries may also include pre-existing injuries that have been worsened as a result of work.
Different types of workplace injuries include:
- Physical injuries – such as slips and falls, lifting injuries, industrial deafness, falling from a height, muscular injuries, and repetitive strain injury (RSI)
- Psychological injuries – such as anxiety, depression, stress, loss of sleep, and the aggravation of pre-existing mental health conditions.

“My need for support from McDonald Murholme came at a time when I was also focussing on a couple of other personal issues - both significant but unrelated. The support I received from Alan, Stephanie and the team was incredible - I felt supported at every step of the process and was 100% confident that the matter was being dealt with effectively whilst I addressed other things. Most importantly, however, the team were easy to talk to and kept me fully up to date with progress. Hopefully I'll not have a need to use them again but, if I do, I absolutely would NOT hesitate! Last thing for me to say - THANK YOU McDonald Murholme!”
