Some of our Geelong client wins

Back injury (Work-related injury)

35 year old man suffered injury to his lower back. He required injections into his back however he was not able to return to his prior employment and commenced work in a lighter role. The client resolved his case prior to going to court for $120,000 for pain and suffering damages and was very happy with the result.

Back Injury (Work-related injury)

47 year old woman who had suffered a back injury resulting in back surgery (a laminectomy) 10 years ago. Further injury sustained to her back at work resulting in 2 further back surgeries, the last being a fusion. WorkSafe refused to make any offers in this case and the matter proceeded to hearing before a jury. The jury awarded this lady $310,000 for pain and suffering.

Adjustment Disorder (work related injury)

54-year-old woman who suffered an adjustment disorder with anxious and depressed mood. Employed by a company who are self-insured for WorkCover. The case resolved for $250,000 without having to issue Court proceedings. Our client was very pleased with the result.

This case was expertly handled by Leon Raneri from our Geelong office.

Back Injury (Work-related injury)

43 year old man who suffered a lower back disc prolapse resulting in surgery as a result of heavy and repetitive lifting and moving animal carcasses over time in his work as a labourer/butcher. To his credit our client was able to obtain part time alternative employment after his injury. WorkSafe refused to accept that despite his efforts to obtain work, our client continued to suffer economic loss. The matter ultimately settled at the door of the Court for $375,000 for both pain and suffering and economic loss damages.

This case was expertly handled by Simone Welsh, Accredited Personal Injury Specialist from our Geelong office.

Knee injuries (work injury)

61 year old man who suffered injuries over time in his job as a carpet layer. His claim was lodged and accepted 9 years ago. He received WorkCover payments for two and a half years (130 weeks) and then the WorkCover insurer terminated his payments on the basis that he could go back to suitable work. Thereafter he received social security benefits. Five years after his WorkCover weekly payments were terminated he came to us for advice. Court proceedings were issued and were successful in getting him back on WorkCover weekly payments and back pay of those payments for all the years when they were not paying him.

Right shoulder injury (work related injury)

48-year-old woman who suffered a significant right shoulder injury requiring surgical intervention and complicated by the development of frozen shoulder syndrome. The case resolved for $500,000 just prior to the hearing, and well above the amount offered by the insurer at the early stages. The client was very pleased with the result.

This case was expertly handled by Leon Raneri from our Geelong office.
