In 2005, Lee was involved in a tragic accident, which wasn’t his fault. After years of delays, the TAC offered him $750,000 – then, we helped him to get a new offer of $1.1 million just two week later. That’s an extra $350,000 in two weeks!

Representing Clients’ Public Liability Claims
Accidents can happen at any time during your normal, day-to-day life. You are not at fault if you are injured due to the negligence of those who are responsible for maintaining safe conditions while you are on their property. This includes public areas like public footpaths. Many times, those responsible for an accident know they are at fault and seek to settle your claim ASAP for nominal compensation – please do not accept such offers!
Our legal team is here to help you get the compensation you deserve in a public liability claim. We have an incredible insight into public liability accidents that flows from Henry Carus' more than 40 years of experience in this area of the law (previously acting for insurance companies that defend these types of claims). Such experience allows us to approach this area of the law in a unique fashion. When that experience is married with our outstanding way of working with our clients, as persons who deserve the utmost support, we are able to deliver outstanding outcomes.
You and your matter deserve more attention than what you will receive at a large law firm where your file will be lost in the midst of shelves of paperwork.
to medical negligence claims gets results
Claims involving medical negligence are among the most complex and difficult areas of compensation law. They require expertise – both legal and medical – as well as a team with experience and dedication to seeking maximum compensation for victims. That is where a medical negligence lawyer and our team come in.
At Henry Carus + Associates, our objective is to get more for people who have been affected by medical errors. We know that we cannot fix the medical mistake, but we can make a difference in the victim’s future.
We focus on proving that a health provider – such as a physician, medical specialist, or hospital – did something wrong during the course of the patient’s medical treatment. Medical negligence matters all come down to understanding the medical evidence and getting the right medical experts to support the claim. The experienced medical negligence lawyers and legal team at Henry Carus + Associates are ready to review your claim and provide you with advice about your potential legal options for recovering compensation.
With more than 40 years’ experience in WorkCover law, the team at Henry Carus + Associates has seen all workplace accident situations. WorkCover claims have the potential to involve many disputes both to achieve benefits and later to gain just compensation for the injuries suffered.
With benefits, the disputes can start with the claim being rejected and then later on continue with medical treatment being denied or cancelled, income benefits being terminated, and more. There are so many different types of benefits disputes arising out of WorkCover Law. Our lawyers also have the expertise to address all of these disputes so that you receive the support you are entitled to under the law.
We also have the expertise to guide you through the world of compensation for your injuries. This includes seeking the most that can be achieved by way of an impairment benefit, submitting a serious injury application that gains you access to common law compensation (lump sum), and then finally maximising the amount of common law compensation you receive.
No matter what it takes, no matter how long we need to work, no matter how complicated the issue – there’s never a fee to pay until we win your claim and get you a cash settlement.
what benefits you deserve
TAC on a regular basis makes decisions that deal with medical and related benefits you are entitled to as a person injured in a motor vehicle accident. The relevant legislation gives you the right to these benefits, with the TAC only operating as a government agency managing the benefits.
TAC often makes decisions to deny or restrict the benefits that are available after a motor vehicle accident when such benefits should not be so restricted. Moreover, TAC often does not inform the injured person and their family of the availability of many benefits, to the detriment of the injured person.
The motor vehicle accident lawyers at Henry Carus + Associates take the time to explain all the benefits that are available and seek such benefits for you. If TAC is not willing to provide benefits we believe should be given, we are happy to contest their decisions; we do this regularly and successfully.
Accident victims may be entitled to TAC benefits for life. But, without guidance from a supportive TAC lawyer, the injured person can be left struggling to live their life with the quality they deserve from the legislation created to help them.
