Geoff came to us after suffering an injury to his back whilst volunteering at a working bee at his local archery club. Geoff was injured when he was directed by another member of the club to go up into the roof area of the clubhouse to retrieve some equipment for a tournament. The roof area was dark and Geoff had never been up there before. He was not given any torch or lighting to assist him or any proper instructions or supervision. Consequently, he was unaware that the ‘roof’ was actually a suspended ceiling and once he stood on the ‘roof’ it gave way causing him to fall onto the concrete floor below.
Geoff delayed in contacting us but once he did we were able to issue proceedings quickly against the club for failing to properly care for Geoff’s safety as a volunteer.
Actual Client Testimonial
After my accident I thought it would be a simple process. It was a matter of paperwork. I thought I could do this alone. I was wrong, so very wrong. My injury was worse than I thought. A crush fracture in my spine that would further deteriorate over time and no real clue on what I was doing by going it alone. I realised I needed help. This was delving into areas where I was out of my depth. I needed a lawyer and the first thing I worried about of course was the cost. There were other worries apart from the cost, what will I need, who can help? Is there a catch with the no win no fee firms? I was sinking further and worried about the competency of some of the places I called. It is at this point I almost gave up until a friend threw me a lifeline and told me to call Henry Carus and Associates. On meeting Henry for the first time I was more than impressed. Henry did something that I had not experienced from other firms. He listened. He asked not only about the details of my injury but how it had occurred, what the effects were and took an interest in me not only as a client but as a person who has and will suffer from my injury. All through-out the process I have been kept informed and involved in what was happening, what steps needed to be taken and what my realistic expectations were. I was impressed by the professional and personal approach from Henry, Jessica and all the staff I have had Contact with. If you are reading this and drowning in the what, where, who and how of the processes and requirements then you have a great option in front of you. Call Henry Carus and Associates. They get to understand you, your situation and who you are as a person not just a client.
