When Nina had a fall at a medical practice in Melbourne her life changed forever. She was attending the clinic to get a hearing check but stumbled on an unmarked rise in the floor level, fracturing her left arm and leg. Nina was 74 at the time of the accident but was a very active and capable person. Her injuries, however, resulted in her having to severely restrict all aspects of her life due to her now limited mobility. She also had medical bills starting to flow in and the costly need for attendant care assistance. Nina’s son contacted us and, after reviewing her case details, we decided she had a solid claim. The Defendant’s insurance solicitor took a very strong defence of the claim at first on the basis that no one else had fallen at the clinic before. Their view of the matter only changed when we asked them to attend the accident site to witness what we had seen at the outset. Meaningful negotiations then followed. Nina received a lump sum of $135,000 in compensation to reflect the level of her injuries.

I would like to emphasise how well Henry Carus & Associates took care of me and how they paid special attention to my circumstances. It was always very pleasant to deal with Henry Carus & Associates. Any question or issue was solved in a professional manner. Whenever we had any concerns, my son called the solicitor and got clarification every time. I would definitely recommend Henry Carus & Associates to others who may find themselves in a similar situation.
