property damage claims

An accident can also cause damage to a worker’s property such as artificial aids and clothing. In such cases, you may be eligible for compensation for property damage.

An injured worker may receive compensation for damage sustained by their artificial aids and clothing in the accident.

damage to artificial aids

If artificial eyes, false teeth, crutches, artificial limbs, other artificial aids or spectacles are damaged in a work related accident, you may be entitled to compensation.

This may include the:

  • reasonable cost of repair or, if necessary, replacement of the artificial aid
  • service costs of qualified persons for consultations, prescriptions and examinations in connection with the repair or replacement of the artificial aid
  • loss of wages associated with attending consultations, prescriptions and examinations to repair or replace the artificial aid.

The maximum amount payable for damage to artificial aids is $2,000. This amount can be increased on a case-by-case basis by SIRA, or by a direction from the Workers Compensation Commission.
