Monaco Compensation Lawyers was founded in 1999. From the beginning, our focus has always been on making a full professional commitment to our clients. These are not empty words. Representing clients injured in accidents or as a result of medical malpractice involves pursuing claims against insurance companies. These are, for the most part, large corporations with powerful logistical and financial resources. In order to succeed in each case, one needs to act and be seen to act with full commitment.
From humble beginnings, the firm quickly grew and extended its reach, firstly into regional New South Wales and then to Queensland and Victoria. As part of our success story, we have taken the fight on behalf of our clients to the highest courts in Australia, including Supreme and Court of Appeal Courts in various jurisdictions, as well as the High Court of Australia. One example of our commitment is a case we recently took to the High Court of Australia (Tomlinson). In this case, we felt it was important that the High court clarify a very important point of law, which it did. As a result, it is now the law in Australia that injured people will no longer lose their right to claim compensation in the circumstances where another court made a prior determination regarding their status as an employee.
