2.1.5 No Time Limit on Claims

The MRCA does not place a time limit on the lodgement of a claim but it is to the claimant's advantage to claim as soon as they become aware of the injury, disease or death. Early claims facilitate the process of determination while supporting information is readily available.   Where it is likely that a client will be entitled to permanent impairment compensation payments, an early claim will in some cases maximise the amount of compensation payable.
