The Story about this WorkCover Claim
Ben had worked with the same employer for most of his working life and loved his job. Over the years he had worked his way up to an assistant store manager position at a busy supermarket, but unfortunately was involved in multiple accidents during the course of his employment.
The nature of his role required him to perform repetitive manual handling tasks which placed stress and strain on his lower back. On one occasion, Ben was wrapping plastic around a pallet when he suddenly felt a sharp pain in his lower back and sustained injury.
In a separate incident at work, he narrowly missed a knife attack by his colleague, which unfortunately resulted in psychological injuries.
After negotiating with the lawyers representing the employer, we were able to settle all of his serious injury claims for a great result.

Actual Client Testimonial
Often when you need a lawyer no matter what the circumstances for me I was fearful, firstly of presenting myself to a lawyers office in need of help, secondly I did not want to look like a fool or be treated like one.
I mustered the strength to present myself to you, opened myself up totally in the hope for a positive outcome.
I chose Henry Carus + Associates about 4 years ago to represent my case on a no win no fee basis, A bit risky one might say!
In legal situations communication is vital and at all times Henry's legal team always attended to my queries in a timely manner which in turn alleviated my personal anxiety and stress.
While representing me, Henry you lived by your written values and because of your values and personal approach I now know that not everyone is out to take advantage of you.
Henry you treated me with kind regard and respect as did your assisting staff, Henry you are a very kind and caring person whom I respect.
You promised me nothing but you said you would give it your all and you followed through.
We had a win! Justice prevailed! For me it was a realistic outcome.
Thank you Henry for your honesty, empathy and total understanding of my case and of the person I am.
Please pass on my personal thanks to Tessa and the rest of your team for their assistance.
In conclusion, I will forever be grateful to you and would recommend Henry Carus & Associates without reservation.
