As a lawyer practising exclusively in workers’ compensation, I’ve helped hundreds of people from all walks of life who have been injured in workplace accidents. I’ve seen firsthand the crippling impact that these injuries can have on individuals and on families, which is why I’m driven to help my clients access fair compensation and the medical support they need.
Knowing what your legal entitlements are when injured or involved in a workplace accident is important, but compensation schemes are complex and it can often feel like they are designed to stop people from pursuing their rights. I’m passionate about helping my clients navigate the twists and turns of the compensation process to ensure they receive the help they deserve.
I help clients experiencing issues with workers’ compensation, including:
• rejected WorkCover claims
• statutory benefits under WorkCover
• lump sum claims including impairment benefit claims and common law damages.
I’m proud of the work I do on every case, but winning a dispute over a terminated WorkCover claim for a client who had a significant psychological injury as a result of workplace bullying is one of my top achievements. As a result of our hard work, the insurer reinstated payments to the client so he was able to focus on getting his life back on track.
