The Story about this WorkCover Claim

Ismail came to Australia as a young man with limited English. Shortly after arriving in Australia, Ismail got married and started a family. He took great pride in providing for his for his young family and working hard as a spray painter for a truck repair centre.

Ismail had a horrific and unfortunate fall from a ladder while he was spray painting a truck in 2015, injuring his back. Ismail was working at a height in excess of 2 metres and his employer had failed to provide him with a safe working platform.  To his great credit Ismail returned to work so that he could provide for his family despite significant ongoing pain.  Ismail only ceased working when he fell down a set of stairs at work in 2018 suffering an aggravation of his injuries.

Ismail found that his injuries did not improve, and he couldn’t return to the job he enjoyed. He struggled with the idea of not being able to provide for his family due to his permanent chronic pain.

Working together with Ismail, with dedication and persistence we were able to successfully establish that Ismail’s employer was at fault for the 2015 injuries, and that those injuries were the main contributing factor to Ismail’s later fall in 2018. We obtained significant compensation for Ismail both for his pain and suffering and his past and future economic loss.
