With the closure of the NSW Compensation Court at the end of 2003 NSW worker’s compensation disputes are now determined in the Workers Compensation Commission of NSW. The Workers Compensation Commission is a non-adversarial tribunal which is not constrained by the rules of evidence. The proceedings within the NSW Workers Compensation Commission are conducted with as little formality as is possible and many matters these day are resolved at a teleconference without the need for the matter to proceed to a formal arbitrated hearing. The NSW Workers Compensation Commission has jurisdiction to determine disputes concerning past and future medical expenses, payments of weekly worker’s compensation for total and partial incapacity, payment of lump sums under Section 66 and Section 67 of the Act and for the payment of death benefits to surviving beneficiaries. Lump sum claims for permanent impairment under the Act for the most part are determined by Approved Medical Specialists who are specialist doctors especially trained in the application of the WorkCover Guidelines for the Evaluation of Permanent Impairment. Claims for lump sum payments under Section 67 for pain and suffering are decided by arbitrators after the quantum of the lump sums under Section 66 have been decided by the AMS. Many workers within the NSW worker’s compensation system will find themselves before the Workers Compensation Commission at some stage in order to seek orders to have the insurer pay the appropriate amounts that are claimable under the Workers Compensation Act. There are no filing fees for the commencement of proceedings in the NSW Workers Compensation Commission and further, all legal costs for injured workers are met... read more


A report has been released by the Australian Government on the comparative performance monitoring of Australia’s Work Health & Safety and Worker’s Compensation systems for 2009/2010. The full report can be viewed at www.safeworkaustralia.gov.au. The report outlines the following findings: There were 194 compensated fatalities recorded in Australia for 2009/2010. Each year 13 out of every 1000 workers continue to be injured seriously enough to require a week or more off work. 75% of injured workers are successfully returning to work within 8-10 months of sustaining their injury. The sectors of the economy with the highest incidence of injury and disease are transport and storage, manufacturing and agriculture and forestry and fishing. Australian worker’s compensation schemes are spending more than $7 billion in payments, around 56% of which was paid direct to injured workers in compensation for the injury or illness and 22% was spent on medical and other services which accounts for approximately 78% of all the payments made. Safework Australia is continuing to work to reduce injury rates throughout... read more


The NSW Court of Appeal has recently examined a case where there was an issue as to whether a driver should examine a vehicle for its roadworthiness before driving it. In a case involving a single vehicle a decision was made that the plaintiff should drive the defendant’s vehicle because the defendant was too intoxicated to drive. The plaintiff drove through a roundabout, lost control of the vehicle and collided with a telegraph pole because the tyres on the vehicle were completely bald. The Court of Appeal decided that it is the responsibility of the owner of a defective vehicle to ensure that it is not driven. In circumstances where the owner knows that the vehicle is defective, the owner has an obligation and a duty of care to prevent another person from driving the defective vehicle, not just warning them of the defect. If there is no reasonable cause to suspect a defect in the vehicle, the driver is not required to ask the owner whether the vehicle that they are about to drive is roadworthy. The case is reported as follows: Harmer -v- Hare [2011] NSWCA... read more
