Can a WorkCover Queensland claim be reopened?

Yes. It is possible that even after you have gone through treatment, things can happen after you return to work that can aggravate your old injury or cause a related injury to happen.

In this case, WorkCover Queensland may reopen your claim. This is only if they can confirm that your current symptoms are linked to your original injury.
