    Busting through the jargon: What does lien mean?

    If you’re claiming work injury compensation, you will probably come across a number of legal terms, many of which may be unfamiliar.

    The term ‘lien’ comes from the French word for a tie or knot , and it legal terms means a claim on a person’s property, which comes about as a result of an unpaid or outstanding debt.

    In a real-life situation, it could be said that there is a lien on a household as a result of an unpaid loan, for example.

    The advantages of claiming compensation

    Work accident compensation is a financial payout, which is most commonly provided to those who suffer work-related illness or injuries as a result of their employer’s negligence.

    Compensation is not just handed out to anyone; it is reserved for those who truly need and deserve it and it can make a significant difference to the lives of people who have had to give up work, take long-term sick leave and cope with the impact of serious illnesses and injuries.

    Compensation can be put towards covering lost earnings, helping out with bills or medical or rehabilitation costs.
