Judge Bowman of the County Court has awarded one of our clients $867,000 damages for injuries she sustained at work as a medical receptionist. Our client suffered a hip injury whilst squatting down to file medical records in overloaded drawers. The claim was vigorously defended by WorkCover's lawyers. The damages included $334,000 pain and suffering damages, $170,000 for past loss of earnings and $363,000 for future loss of earnings. Our client is very satisfied with the outcome achieved in her case.
