Ian came to us after a fall from his bicycle on a busy road. The accident occurred due to a large pot hole in the road in a crucial spot. He was riding to work at the time so he was able to access immediate medical care by lodging a WorkCover claim. However, the accident occurred not through any fault of his employer. So when Ian visited a number of big firms he was told he had no chance of receiving any compensation. He then came to see Henry Carus who immediately recognised there should not be a large pot hole for cyclists to fall into with the likely result of injury. The observation flowed from Henry’s strong insurance background where he acted for road authorities directly and understood how such roads should be maintained. He then set about finding who should have fixed the hole before the accident occurred. Eventually we were able to determine the responsible party and obtain compensation for Ian.
Actual Client Testimonial
I was immediately impressed with Henry when we first met and he told me that he 'never lost a claim' after being fobbed off by some of the "big" firms in town. He took the time out with me to personally visit the accident site so that he could further determine the level of my claim. I was delighted in receiving an initial sum prior to the firm initiating formal civil claim proceedings. Jessica King, the solicitor handling my case, displayed much dedication and determination to eventually establish that a large engineering contracting organisation was responsible for maintaining the pothole that caused my accident. Although I still live with the effects of my injury I have been delighted with the care and service provided and would highly recommend Henry Carus & Associates. Many thanks again
