Compensation Claims for Injured Jockeys and Staff
If you are injured while riding in a race or during the course of your work in the Thoroughbred breeding and racing industry, you are entitled to a full range of workers compensation entitlements prescribed under Queensland and New South Wales legislation.
Laws and entitlements vary between states and territories, as well as industries. Time limits also apply, and if you delay your claim you may not be compensated. It’s vital that you seek out prompt and reliable legal advice as soon as possible after an injury to make sure all your rights are fulfilled.

Jeff’s only complaint is that he spends more time talking about the horses than about the work!
