Applicants may be able to obtain financial assistance for their injury from other sources. These sources are listed below and the Tribunal recommends that they are explored before an applicant makes an Application for Assistance from the Tribunal.
Workcover (if the incident occurred at work); or
Transport Accident Commission (if the incident involved a motor vehicle); or
The Police Assistance Act (if the victim was injured assisting the police); or
Medicare and/or Private Health Insurance (for some medical bills); or
The offender (if found guilty).
In determining the amount of financial assistance (if any) to be awarded to the applicant, the Tribunal will take into account any other payments received and may reduce the amount accordingly. The Tribunal may also require reimbursement of any amount paid to the applicant if they are successful in claiming assistance from another source.
