Some Workers Compensation claims are legitimate, some start out as legitimate but the worker becomes addicted to the no work but paid situation, some were a fraud from the start (either the injury happened elsewhere, or the worker has heard of others successfully scamming the employer, or an employer), sometimes the employee is aware that the contract is coming to an end and just wants more money, some are using Workcover payments to help them get their own business up and running, some want the pot of gold they imagine at the end of the Workers Compensation rainbow, and some just don't want to work. We see all sorts, from exaggeration, to outright fraud, to long shot claims when an injury occurred years ago that everyone thought they recovered from, and a speculative civil action is launched out of the blue.

Townsville Workers Compensation Claim Factual Investigation
Workcover factual investigations, a Townsville Workcover investigation, is about talking to people, finding out information, locating witnesses, taking affidavits, interviews, and locating and preserving evidence for later presentation to a court. These investigations may occur early, after the incident, to preserve the memories of witnesses, the evidence, for a future court case. It may also occur where there is a suspicion about the real cause of the injury. An early Workcover investigation is about recording the scene, locating and preserving any risk management forms or work procedures, any training documents, and preserving memories, for a court case that may be years away. Generally, when a Workcover claim is accepted, some liability attaches to the business. The injured worker has their case managed, and a return to work is generally the objective. When the more serious have their injuries stabilised there is often a civil claim lodged, claiming a certain percentage disability or incapacity.
When a worker or employee is off for an extended period, and not showing the expected recovery, nor participation in return to work activities, or the employer has suspicions about the legitimacy of a Workcover claim, this is the next point at which a Workcover investigator may be employed.

Caused by being investigated. It is better to document, to gather the evidence, and present it to your solicitors.
