other state governments may have a different system though.

No I haven't, though I guess I might have been able to for a few work injuries including getting electrocuted one time. I was too young and stupid at the time though to have done anything about it.

After a car accident when dd was younger, they paid for medical costs through CTP insurance. It wasn't the girl who hit us that had to pay or be claimed from.

Yes, two actually, evil sod that I am. Both instigated by my employer, both covered medical expenses, one covered a few days off work.

no, not really although I have had a fair few workplace injuries but being hospitality no-one really claims - it is frowned upon tbh.
I did claim workcover at Crown when a big piece of kitchen equiptment fell on me and knocked me to the ground. Typically the bosses where very indimidating and questioned 'if i really wanted to claim'. In the end I got the two days off work paid for but didn't put in a proper claim - they were such bullies

Yes. When I was 16 I worked in a cafe. The meat slicer called in sick so they asked me to slice ham for lunchtime. No training and I sliced my finger. They said you'll be fine and put a few bandaids on. Turns out I needed 5stitches after work.
Originally because I was casual they didn't want to pay me but my dad went to workcover then I got a cheque. Never did find out what my dad said to them.
So I recover and go to go to work but all of a sudden there are no more shifts for me
