6.2.2 Determine liability Guidelines to determine liability | Check claim validity | Liability determination | Liability rejected: worker appeals decision | Suspend impairment process | Independent impairment assessment | Worker non-attendance at IIA-HLA | Review IIA report

The worker lodges a claim for impairment benefits with their employer or if the employer has ceased or is no longer in existence, on the Agent. The worker must use a Worker’s Claim for Impairment Benefits form.

A worker is not required to provide any medical evidence in support of the claim, however, if the worker is legally represented, the worker’s solicitor may enclose a copy of treating medical evidence along with a Solicitor Inquiry Form (SIF). The claim form, the SIF and the enclosed material is then submitted to the managing Agent by either the employer or the worker’s solicitor.
