Some of our Geelong client wins
Right wrist (work related injury)

54-year-old woman who suffered an injury to her right wrist. Initially treated by injecting corticosteroid then underwent two surgical procedures to the right wrist. Employed by a company who are self-insured for WorkCover. The case resolved for $250,000 without having to issue Court proceedings.

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

Psychiatric injury (Work-related injury)

56 year old man who suffered a severe psychiatric injury as a result of being bullied by a manager at his workplace. He was able to return to work as a self-employed home handyman where he could pick and choose his hours and avoid the stress of dealing with management. Despite some pre-trial offers to grant our client a serious injury certificate, no settlement offers were forthcoming and the matter proceeded to hearing in the County Court for both pain and suffering and economic loss damages. Our client gave credible and straightforward evidence which put pressure on the defendant to make an offer of settlement prior to the Judge handing down her decision. The case resolved for $120,000 for pain and suffering damages.

Shoulder injury (Injury in a public place)

63 year old woman who suffered a fractured humerus in a public place resulting in emergency surgery. She had 3 months off work. She has ongoing restrictions in her shoulder and is working modified duties. This case settled for $290,000 for pain and suffering and medical expenses.

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.

Shoulder injury and thoracic outlet syndrome (Work-related injury)

29 year old woman who suffered an injury affecting dominant upper limb, namely thoracic outlet syndrome. She had surgery for her condition, and all of her medical information indicated she had made an excellent recovery after the surgery. WorkSafe refused to make any offers in the case and the matter proceeded to hearing before a Judge where a judgment of $140,000 for pain and suffering was achieved.

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.
