Serious Injury Applications worth the wait

Serious Injury Applications worth the wait

Adviceline Injury Lawyers were recently successful in yet another case seeking a Serious Injury Certificate from the County Court for an injured worker. This case related to a 2008 work injury and after not being reached in February 2013, was finally heard in November. Her Honour Judge Davis handed down her decision on 10 December 2013 in favour of our client.

Although the delay in receiving this Serious Injury Certificate was frustrating, the ultimate outcome was worth the wait.

It was pleasing to see that this was another case where the Judge quoted from and relied upon the Court of Appeal case Haden Engineering Pty Ltd v McKinnon, also won by Lisa Maynard of Adviceline Injury Lawyers. This case has been consistently relied upon to determine whether a Plaintiff is eligible for a pain and suffering serious injury certificate since it was decided in 2010.
