JANE’S CASE EXPERIENCE

Accident at work claim: Jane represented a client whose leg was completely de-gloved after being hit at work by a forklift truck driven by an inexperienced driver who had not followed procedure. The claimant’s employer had also failed to designate traffic routes and implement a safe working system. After commencing court proceedings, Jane secured a significant six figure compensation award for her client at a Joint Settlement Meeting.

Psychological injury claim: Jane acted for a bereaved family who witnessed their husband and father die in a hit and run traffic accident caused by a drunk driver. Jane established that her clients were all secondary victims, even though one family member was not a witness. Jane secured significant damages for her clients, who all suffered post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and resultant losses.
