We have been fighting hard for our clients since 1989, and have a proven track record for achieving the best results. Winning claims is our priority, and our team works tirelessly to ensure our clients get an outcome they are happy with.
Our client sustained physical and psychiatric injuries when a box of perfume fell on her as it was passed between two people working at a store. The District Court judge awarded our client $233,000. Upon the insurer's appeal, the award to our client was increased to an amount of $250,000 plus costs.
Bullied at work
Our client has suffered a serious psychiatric condition when she was bullied as an assistant school principal. We were able to obtain a settlement for our client of $985,000, almost double the insurer's offer at mediation 12 months earlier.
Our client, her partner, and their four year old son had been planning their wedding. However, before there was a chance to propose, our client's partner died after he was incorrectly discharged from a major hospital emergency department after a junior doctor failed to recognise signs of a urinary tract infection. Our client obtained a sizable verdict and was thrilled with the outcome.
Bullied at work
Our client was bullied and received a serious psychiatric injury whilst he was working as a teacher. We are able to get him an award of $630,000, an amount far greater than his previous lawyers' suggestion and double the insurer's offer at mediation.
Our 50 year old client had always lived at home with his father and elderly mother. When his mother died in 2014, our client discovered that his mother had left all of her estate to her brothers and sisters, rather than to our client. We were able to challenge the will on grounds of undue influence, and ultimately settled on our client obtaining 75% of the estate which was close to a million dollars. Our client was very grateful for us to obtain such a result.
Bullied at school
Our client was bullied whilst at junior and high school in the Penrith area, having sustained significant psychological trauma and causing him to leave his high school. It was found that despite reports by our client's parents on numerous occasions to the schools and staff, they failed to take preventative steps with respect to the particular bullies involved. At the District Court, settlement was accepted and the Department of Education settled on an award in excess of $320,000. Our client received the benefit on his 18th birthday, and he was delighted with the result.
Motor vehicle accident
Our client suffered physical and psychiatric injuries on account of a car accident. Although she had not worked for some time and was receiving Centrelink benefits, she was ultimately able to receive an award of $220,000.
Our client was a patient of a senior endocrinologist in Sydney who failed to diagnose our client's acromegaly, a rare tumour of the pituitary gland. After initial hearing, the matter settled on confidential terms, which our client was very pleased with.
Bullied at school
Our client was a young boy who experienced severe bullying at his school. After much negotiation on the steps of court, the Department of Education settled by paying him $250,000 and paid all his costs.
Our client was seriously physically and psychologically injured in a motor vehicle accident, leaving him with brain damage and requiring lots term assistance from his wife. Our client received a settlement in the amount of $1,050,000 plus most of his costs paid. We were also able to get his wife $75,000 for the secondary psychological injury she suffered on account of our client's injuries.
Our client was one of three sons and thought he always had a loving relationship with his mother. However, when his mother died in 2013, she unfortunately left nothing for our client, who was at the time living in the United Kingdom. We successfully settled his case without him needing to go to Court.
Our client was at home when she was told that her daughter had been killed in a horrific car crash, and our client consequently suffered serious psychological harm. We were able to get damages for our client in the sum of $200,000, and $40,000 for her surviving son from their considerable loss and secondary psychological harm.
Our client is one of Australia's leading psychologists. However, when her 76 year old mother went into hospital complaining of chest pains, our client and her father were severely distressed. The hospital incorrectly diagnosed a heart problem and both the hospital and the hospital’s cardiologist failed to diagnose a tear in the aorta. An MRI was never offered to our client’s mother. We were able to establish that the hospital's and surgeon's prescription of blood thinning drugs also cheated our client of many further years with her mother. Ultimately the case settled for $325,000 for our both clients.
