The Story about this WorkCover Claim

Our gracious client Iwona was delightful to work with. Iwona worked as a PCA with the Council since 1998.  In 2015, her claim was denied on the basis that the injury Iwona suffered was a result of a combination of factors, including constitutional age-related degeneration, however, the medical panel members concluded the contrary. 

Iwona was an extraordinary PCA, and she was passionate about caring for the elderly.  One of the biggest impacts Iwona’s injury had on her life, aside from the time spent in surgery and rehabilitation thereafter, was losing her ability to work in her chosen profession.

Although Iwona had been granted serious injury certificates to bring a common law claim to sue for pain and suffering, and loss of earnings capacity, unfortunately, the Defendant attempted to fight hard to deny liability, refusing to pay financial compensation. 

After a lengthy yet effective investigation process, we were so pleased to succeed in court. On the 3rd day of the jury trial, we were able to negotiate an excellent compensation outcome for pain and suffering, and economic loss.

This is what Iwona had to say about her experience:
