The Story about this TAC Claim
Marty chose Henry Carus + Associates on the recommendation of a family friend. He was seriously injured when out on his motorbike for a ride. Marty was a keen and very experienced motorbike rider and he was on his way down to Phillip Island with his partner Vicky to meet some friends. They were on the South Gippsland Highway when a car pulled out of a side road without seeing Marty. His was knocked from his bike, thrown in the air and landed badly, sustaining multiple injuries. Vicky was on her own motorbike travelling just behind Marty and saw the whole event unfold. Marty’s injuries meant he would be unable to return to work as a self-employed builder – all he had ever known was bricklaying, concrete labouring and carpentry.
We were able to speak to TAC within days of Marty becoming our client, securing for him not only a Serious Injury Certificate, but also an interim payment to ease the family’s financial pressures. This in turn allowed us to fully work on Marty’s case, so that we could demonstrate to TAC the devastating and long term effects that the accident had brought to both Marty and Vicky’s lives. We were able to resolve Marty’s case at an early informal conference with TAC for a generous amount.
