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.
Actual Client Testimonial
In one single moment in time we felt our lives had taken a tragic turn forever.
An impatient elderly driver didn’t see my husband and smashed him off his motorcycle. This vivid scene will never leave my memory as I rode behind him and seeing him catapulted to what I thought, through the air, to his death.
Fourteen broken bones, bruised lungs and a near amputation of his arm left him in hospital. No income, our business at a screeching halt no knowing where to turn next.
TAC did what they legally had to but sadly that was not going to be enough, not in the short or long term.
Henry Carus and Associates were recommended to us. We had absolutely no idea what to expect, if anything, but we knew we were in uncharted waters and had no idea of who to trust.
We felt from the first meeting with Henry that we were in good hands.
My husband needed to concentrate on healing mentally, physically and emotionally and Henry and his team knew that, they took care of everything.
They handled the whole situation with such professionalism, compassion, efficiency and promptness. They exceeded any anticipation of not only the outcome, but the journey. The whole team worked together in our best interest and allowed us to concentrate on us.
Never in our dreams did we imagine that our lives would be looked after in this way.
We feel that we came into this situation as clients and we know we have been treated like family.
There are no words to express our gratitude to Henry, David and the team and we have absolutely no hesitation in recommending them.
