Pantelis Giannenas and Henry Carus + Associates

The Story about this WorkCover Claim

Pantelis suffered injury to his upper body in the course of his employment whilst performing repetitive work. He reported the injury to his employer. Instead advising him to lodge a workers compensation claim, his employer referred him to the onsite physiotherapist. The treatment did not assist him. When the injury worsened his employer terminated his employment. After the termination Pantelis, lodged a workers compensation claim, and that claim was rejected which prompted him to seek advice by Henry Carus and Associate Lawyer.

Here is what Pantelis has to say about his experience in dealing with HCA Lawyers:

Actual Client Testimonial

My Workers Compensation claim was not a straightforward claim. First, I went to the Conciliation services because my employer refused to accept my workers compensation claim. My employer and the insurer company would not return my calls or help. I was lost and confused with no clue what to do as I never dealt with Work Cover. After talking to some friends, I researched many personal injury law firms and decided to choose Henry Carus. I still remember the day I met with my lawyer Ciltra at Henry Carus Brighton Office. She is a strong determined lawyer with a lot of empathy. She was extremely caring as well as supportive. My employer rejected everything, first my claim Henry and Ciltra had to fight to have my claim accepted. The stress got over me and I would call Ciltra, and she would keep me calm. I needed assurance as I could not sleep, I would call Ciltra she kept me focused and talk to me. It was not for Ciltra I would have given up. She treated me like a family member, and she kept me informed of each step. My Serious Injury Certificates were denied I was angry and wanted everything to end including my life. Ciltra again stayed calm and kept me focused. Ciltra and Henry had to go to Court to have the Serious Injury granted. We won at both times. After several years of fighting my claim settled. Ciltra negotiated my settlement it took 3 days with counter offers. I cannot tell you how please I am with the outcome. Ciltra and Henry Carus looked after me from the first day I signed up with them. I am not good at expressing myself other than to say I am absolutely indebted to Ciltra and her assistant Sakina very much appreciate everything Henry Carus Lawyers has done for me. Thank you Ciltra and Henry.
