Due to the large amount of email queries (questions re workers comp and workcover claim issues), we can not guarantee that we will be able to answer your email/queries personally. Please use this page (I need help) – below- to ask your questions, as our contributors and injured readers are often able to answer your questions or lead you in the right direction. You can use a nickname and an alias email to comment/ask questions, preserving your anonymity.
Remember that we are most knowledgeable about the workcover system in Victoria, however, our interstate readers are often able to help injured workers from other states than Victoria.
For “peer-to-peer support”, you can post your questions here on this page (below in the comment section) where our Team and other injured workers may have advice for you or experience with your specific situation in your state.
We always like to hear the stories of all injured workers in Australia to help us compile anonymous, but factual, evidence from as injured workers about any abuses they have experienced by workers compensation systems across Australia.
How to post a question
To post a comment on a workcover victims diary you do not need to register or login or anything in order to post a question and you can post it entirely anonymously.
You can use the “comment” form under each post (article) to comment (see comment form below). To do so you will need to use a name (which can be anything fictitious such as “victim”, “newbie”, “I hate them”, whatever) and an email address. We recommend you use an alias email address created for the purpose of participating on any social media platform (eg. Gmail), (mind you, using your real email address is also safe, as it will NOT be published and your email will only be visible to the blog’s administrator), however, due to potential hacking or snooping, we suggest you use an alias email address at all times to comment (so that in the unlikely event of a successful hack your email address can not be stolen).
Note: aworkcovervictimsdiary does not (or very rarely) insert comments on behalf of our readers – i.e comments on articles received via email.
