The Story about this TAC Claim

Kerry came to us following a transport accident in September 2019. While stationary on the off ramp of a freeway, Kerry’s car was hit hard from behind by another vehicle, with the extreme force shunting her and her car across the road and ending up on the median strip.

While it was a clear that the other driver was at fault, the difficulty in Kerry’s matter was that she had pre-existing sciatica and lower back problems. These issues had worsened after a long-haul international flight to the point where Kerry was referred to a neurosurgeon and underwent an MRI scan only days prior to the motor vehicle accident.

Following the transport accident, Kerry’s back pain increased dramatically and ultimately, she required a lumbar spinal fusion and had to reduce her work hours from full time to 3 days per week.

We were able to prove that the transport accident was the cause Kerry’s consequences of increased back pain and reduced work capacity, and that this was not a result of any progressive and pre-existing back issues. This led to Kerry being granted a Serious Injury Certificate and paved the way for Kerry to claim a significant sum of damages for both pain and suffering, and economic loss.

Kerry has shared these kind words about her experience with our firm:

Actual Client Testimonial.

After my car accident four years ago, I had chronic back pain which affected my day to day life and I needed support dealing with TAC.

I contacted Henry Carus + associates for representation. From the beginning, David Halhead was amazing. Part of the journey took place during Covid and even in those uncertain times David and the team made me feel heard, supported and understood.

The process in reaching a settlement can be a long one but I would not have wanted to have anyone else in my corner. We received a serious injury certificate from TAC and proceed to settlement which led to an excellent outcome.

Their dedication to my case was evident in the countless hours they invested in researching, preparing, and advocating on my behalf. The team’s expertise and attention to detail were critical in navigating the complexities of my medical claim which included a pre-existing back condition. They have an ability to communicate complicated legal terms and procedures in a way that has been easy for us to understand and this was incredibly helpful.

Commitment to justice and their clients’ well-being shone through at every step, which makes Henry Carus truly stand out.

Once again thank you David, for all that you’ve done for me.
