Permanent injury is that which impairs the physical or mental ability of a person to perform regular tasks. New South Wales compensation law has established guidelines for evaluating permanent injury compensation claims based on the degree of impairment suffered.
Permanent injury compensation can be the result of a work incident, car accident, or other situation resulting from negligence. Injured workers can claim a lump sum amount in addition to weekly compensation payments for covering loss of wages, medical expenses and rehabilitation costs.
