Compensation for an injured back

Compensation for an injured back

Adviceline Injury Lawyers have settled a claim for a worker who severely injured his back in 2004 while working as a motor mechanic. He injured his back as a result of heavy, awkward lifting of tyres during the course of his employment without adequate lifting assistance or training. As a consequence of the injury the worker required major surgery to his spine in 2007.

The Defendant initially denied that the worker had suffered a serious injury and we issued proceedings in the County Court of Victoria claiming a serious injury certificate for both his pain and suffering and lost earnings. On the day of the court hearing we were able to negotiate with the Defendant and settle the claim for a substantial sum of damages. The claim was settled without the need for the worker to go through a court hearing.

No Win, No Fee

If we proceed with a claim you only have to pay legal costs if we are successful in getting you compensation.
