Workers Compensation – Knee accident at work claims $605K
Workers Compensation Claim – $605,000 compensation
Brett sustained serious injuries to his knee when he was pinned between a forklift and a steel skip at work. Immediately following the injury, he experienced severe pain and swelling to his knee and was placed on light duties because of his ongoing symptoms. Over the following months and years, Brett’s knee condition gradually got worse, until he required surgical interventions and ongoing physiotherapy. His ongoing disabilities severely impacted on his ability to undertake his employment or to assist with the care of his young children.
Brett came to us because he was dissatisfied with his previous solicitors. Our Workers Compensation team stepped in and got Brett substantially more than his previous solicitors had said his Workers Compensation was worth. We pursued all available claims for compensation, and successfully resolved Brett’s claim at mediation with a settlement of $605,000 inclusive of costs and out of pocket expenses.
