50 year old man receives 1.4 million dollars Compensation after sustaining injuries from a Motor Vehicle Accident

Published 07 Sep 2018

This matter involved a motor vehicle accident where our client was struck by another car while driving through an intersection.

On the date of the accident, our client was heading to work as he would normally. Suddenly and without warning, another car then drove into the intersection, failing to give way to our client and collided with his vehicle. As a result, our client suffered severe whiplash to his neck and back, which ultimately required the attention of specialists to perform risky back surgery.

These type of injuries can have serious impacts on an individual’s future prospects in the workplace, which was of concern for his family.  At the time of the car accident, our client was the bread winner in his family and was devastated he would no longer be able to provide for his young children and stay at home wife.

Mr  Reg  Kolokossian a Senior  Accredited Personal Injury specialist  saw that  our client  and his family  were  facing  severe  financial hardships  and immediately  sought to provide the much wanted assistance our client required.

Before contacting Gerard Malouf and Partners, our client faced many barriers towards accessing the justice and compensation he needed by missing crucial deadlines for submitting his claim form to the CTP insurer.  This situation often occurs when individuals are unaware of the legal system and are overwhelmed by the legal process during a particular time of stress in their lives.

To prevent our client from losing his claim Gerard Malouf and Partner’s used their fierce representation and advocacy, to bat for our client and take on the Insurers. Numerous applications  for  financial assistance were made to ensure our client was taken care of, while Mr Reg Kolokossian, Senior  Accredited Personal Injury specialist, proactively brought the matter to a settlement, in under 2 years’ time.

Consequently, we managed to settle this claim out of court, and reach a fair outcome for our client. In this way, our client was able to avoid the often long and daunting stress of a court case.
