Success for Wangaratta healthcare worker

Adviceline Injury Lawyers in Wangaratta has recently settled a serious injury claim for a diversional therapy assistant working who sustained a serious work-related lower back injury.

The healthcare worker was able to successfully claim for her pain and suffering and loss of income, despite continuing to work after her injury occurred and not being able to recall the exact date of injury.

Our client made her WorkCover claim when her condition deteriorated, over 12 months after the injury, and was entitled to weekly payments of compensation, and medical and like expenses, including surgery to her spine.

Our client’s serious injury application was initially rejected by WorkSafe Victoria, but we were able to negotiate and reach a settlement prior to her court case.

Adviceline Injury Lawyers assisted our client through each stage of her claim – including ensuring correct payment of her basic entitlements, lodging an income protection claim through her superannuation fund when her weekly payments were terminated, and finally her common law claim.

Our Wangaratta office assists client’s located in Wangaratta, Albury/Wodonga, Shepparton and surrounds.
