A Whole Person Impairment (WPI) is a measure of the degree of impairment you’ve suffered as a result of your injury.
The Whole Person Impairment compensation you may be eligible to receive will be based on your WPI assessment percentage.
Your injury or condition will need to have “stabilised” and be unlikely to change significantly in the next year without treatment, before a medical specialist can assess your WPI assessment percentage.
Once assessed, you’ll be informed of your WPI percentage and that will help determine the amount of lump sum compensation you’re entitled to.
To be classified as a “serious injury” your Whole Person
Impairment will need to be 30% or higher.
