icare – Your workers Compensation Payments may have been inaccurate
Have you received a letter from icare?
According to the media, icare have written to thousands and thousands of injured people about their PIAWE (Pre-Injury Average Weekly Earnings). An incorrect calculation process may have happened when determining your Weekly Earnings in relation to your Workers Compensation Claim.
We understand that this may raise issues for you, as your injury may have occurred nearly a decade ago, and the thought of going through it all may be daunting to you! But don’t despair. Walker Law Group can take charge of this review for you, on a No Win No Fee basis.
If you received workers compensation payments from October 2012, you may have received incorrect payments”
According to an icare Factsheet sent to people that may be affected, it states:-
“From October 2012, the way workers compensation payments in NSW were determined changed. This changed the information required and the calculation process used by insurance companies to determine the weekly compensation payments for people who had sustained a work-related injury.
icare, initiated a review of how weekly workers compensation payments were determined by insurers. In some instances missing earnings information or other issues may have resulted in people receiving incorrect payments.
If you received weekly compensation payments that started on or after 1 October 2012, you may have been underpaid.
We are inviting you to have your past weekly compensation payments reassessed to understand if you are owed money.
