Researchers from Monash University and the University of Melbourne, supported by ISCRR have conducted the first rigorous academic studies of injured person's experiences in the current Victorian workers compensation and transport accident compensation systems.

The findings of three studies offering important insights into compensation systems and injured people were presented at a research symposium in Melbourne on 20 September 2013.

The studies explore the experiences of injured people in compensation systems, and identify factors such as communications with the client and independent medical examinations that may lead to a negative experience or slower recovery.
