Some of our Geelong client wins

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.
