If you have sustained an injury at work you may be eligible to have your weekly wages and treatment costs covered by Workers Compensation insurance. This can be an extremely stressful time as many people are unfamiliar with the Work Cover system and feel they have little or no control over their situation. At MyFamily Physio, not only will we assist you with recovering from your injury but also help you understand the Work Cover process.
If you have sustained an injury as a result of a motor vehicle accident you may be eligible to have your treatment costs covered by CTP insurance. Recent CTP reforms have also enabled some injured people to have access to weekly payments. At MyFamily physio we can assist you with your recovery and help you understand the CTP claims process. Please note Work Cover and CTP insurance have different processes and can often change!
