WORKPLACE INJURY MANAGEMENT AND WORKERS COMPENSATION ACT 1998 - SECT 275
Duty to commence provisional weekly payments if claim is first notification of injury
275 Duty to commence provisional weekly payments if claim is first
notification of injury
(1) If the claim for weekly payments is the first notification that an insurer
has received of the injury to the worker, section 267 (Duty to commence
weekly payments following initial notification of injury) applies to require
the commencement of provisional weekly payments of compensation within 7 days
after the claim is made.
(2) The provisional acceptance of liability pursuant
to the commencement of provisional weekly payments of compensation under that
section operates to extend the period within which the claim must be
determined for the purposes of this Division until the end of the period for
which liability has been provisionally accepted.
Note : This allows the
insurer more time to determine liability while providing for the commencement
of weekly payments on the basis of the provisional acceptance of liability.
