Whilst engaging in a favorite past time, a long bike ride, DP was injured. The accident happened when the driver of a motor vehicle opened his door causing DP to collide with the door and suffer a number of serious injuries. Some of these injuries were immediately evident, but others that proved very serious only developed with time. DP made a claim with the TAC and received the normal medical related and income related benefits. As to getting compensation for the loss of the quality of his life and his inability to return to work with his beloved employer of over 33 years, we advised him that it was best to wait a bit. So we waited, we were patient, we worked, we waited, and with time the full extent of his serious injuries became evident. Then we obtained a serious injury certificate for DP and we looked at settling his claim. Responsibility for the accident was not at issue, only the value of his claim. At first the extent of the impact of his injuries was not accepted by the TAC and at an early conference they offered $180,000 plus retention of benefits paid, and we advised it was just too low. DP accepted our advice and off we went to gather more evidence to strengthen his claim. We came back to TAC after quite some time and we were able to have TAC increase its offer of settlement to $380,000 plus keeping all benefits paid to date; an incredible increase over the initial offer. The outcome achieved by hard work and patience was so much appreciated by DP that he came back with gifts for all those at our office who had assisted with his matter.

This is my story. I sustain serious injury in road accident on my regular bike ride. It was so serious that after one year I didn't improve with my recovery. Then I was forced to look for personal injury lawyer. After initial talk with number of lawyers, and Mr Carus I decide for Mr Henry Carus. I believe that he was very transparent in his professional conduct with me. He explain to me legality of the law and I was happy to give him a go. Since than Mr Carus kept me informed about the case which was very pleasing. At all times I was updated with the progress of my case that was very important to me. To cut story short I must say the outcome was successful for all of us and I thank Mr. Carus and his team for hard work they done for me.
