A client of Adviceline Injury Lawyers was awarded $150,000 in compensation for pain and suffering this morning in the County Court, for injuries she sustained as a result of domestic violence.
The defendant was charged with criminal damage, intentionally causing injury, recklessly causing injury and recklessly causing serious injury, in relation to acts of domestic violence he inflicted on our client. The defendant was subsequently sentenced on the 4th of May 2010 to five years and six months imprisonment.
With the assistance of Adviceline Injury Lawyers our client commenced a Sentencing Act Application in order to seek compensation for the injuries she sustained by the defendant, including the loss of vision in her left eye and post traumatic stress disorder.
Although no monetary figure would ever be enough for the loss of our client's eyesight and injuries she sustained, she was very happy with the outcome in her case.
