Beware, If you are filing false claims, you will get caught :idontknow:

 

A Queensland man had his $950,000 work-injury compensation claim quashed in court after video of him doing karate was found on social media.

 

Paul Thomas Kennedy was working for the Queensland Alumina Limited metal refinery in 2012 when he was scolded by caustic solution on his left ankle.

He described the sensation in documents tendered to the Rockhampton Supreme Court as a "jolting" and "electrical" type pain, ninemsn reports.

 

Mr Kennedy, who was 26 at the time, also said "any knock to my ankle is also really painful and sometimes causes a burning/nerve type pain which shoots up the back of my calf".

He said the pain was "something above seven out of ten".

 

But the court had more pain install for him when it knocked back his claim after a video emerged of him sparring at Gladstone's Silat Langkah Baru martial arts school surfaced on Facebook.

He still didn't do too badly:

 

 

Mr Kennedy always took partial responsibility for the accident, but thanks to the video, his $950,000 compo claim was chopped down to just $191,061.

 

"Just"  $191,061    ???

It is rife down under. The Aussies invented the word "Bludger."

At work the other week I suggested to 2 Aussies that they should go for a X-Ray. When they asked why I replied "To see if there is a day's work in you."
