Adviceline Injury Lawyers have recently settled a claim for an injured worker. The claim was settled for a substantial sum of damages on the morning that the hearing of the claim was due to commence in the Supreme Court of Victoria.
The worker injured his back whilst performing heavy repetitive lifting at a factory. He was only in his early 20s at the time of injury. Adviceline Injury Lawyers had previously represented the worker in a hearing before the County Court, where the judge found that he was entitled to sue for pain and suffering damages and loss of earnings. The claim for damages was then fought hard by 2 Defendants, however, the matter was able to be settled without the need for a second court hearing.
