Emma came to our office after suffering a fall at work. She worked in a busy laundry business where no one seemed to care about leaving items scattered all over the floor. Yes, Emma was aware of the problem but unfortunately one day a drawstring to a bag caught her foot and down she fell. She was given a serious injury certificate by WorkCover for her pain and suffering, and for her inability to work, but when it came to compensation they said it was all her fault as there was no mess on the floor in the first place and even if there was one on the day of her accident she could have walked around it! Such arguments are commonly raised, and they are in fact without much support in the law.
We worked for Emma past those arguments to get her the compensation she sought. Emma has written to us and has said:
Actual Client Testimonial
After talking to my friend about shoulder injury at work, he suggested that I’m going to need a lawyer. So we searched online and found Henry Carus + Associates, which happens to be minutes away from me. So we went to meet Henry Carus two days after the initial contact. I was nervous, not sure that to expect when meeting with Henry, but after meeting with him I was guaranteed he was the lawyer I needed. Henry was honest, caring and clear with everything to do with my potential claim for compensation. I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you for being supportive, patient and for giving me legal advice. There was something that Henry said during our last meeting that put me at ease and brought a smile to my face. Henry told me to relax and not to worry, because it’s his job to worry. I cannot thank you and your team enough for giving me peace of mind and helping through a difficult chapter in my life. Thank you Henry, Natasha, Eren and the rest of the team. I definitely recommend Henry Carus + Associates to people I know.
