Client received $60,000.00 in compensation despite significant pre-existing disabilities
Whilst shopping in a Woolworths Store our client slipped and fell on some cherry seeds, causing injury to her foot, ankle and lower back. She contacted our office seeking advice on her legal rights to compensation.
At the time of the accident our client was not working and was in receipt of the Disability Support Pension, due to a pre-existing debilitating disease. She was also receiving assistance from the Department of Aged and Disability Care prior to the accident.
Despite this our compensation lawyers were still able to aggressively pursue a claim for compensation on our client’s behalf claiming compensation for her pain and suffering, treatment expenses and requirement for additional domestic assistance.
We were able to negotiate a settlement for our client in the sum of $60,000 compensation without the need of a Court Hearing. This settlement has made a huge impact on our client’s life and she was very pleased with the outcome.
If you have sustained an injury due to a slip and fall for which you believe someone else is responsible, please give us a call to discuss your legal rights for compensation.
