The Story about this WorkCover Claim

Sharon was working two jobs in the disability support sector. One day while adjusting the seatback of a client’s wheelchair she felt something go in her back. Sharon took time off for conservative and specialist treatments, returned to work on modified duties, experienced an increase in symptoms and needed to take time off again.

Sadly, she then experienced a common sequence of events in WorkCover claim; her entitlements were ceased, and she was made to go through conciliation, a Magistrates Court proceeding and referral to a Medical Panel before these were reinstated. In the end this process took years.

Sharon was represented by a different personal injury firm through this time. After being with them, and being in the system, for six years she decided to move her file over to Henry Carus + Associates.

Here is what she had to say about her experience:

Actual Client Testimonial.

I would like to thank you for everything you have done for me and my situation.

In just 1 year you have done so much more for me than the previous lawyers did in 6 years.

I am so very grateful to you and thank you for putting with me during this time. Being kind of left to rot by the previous lawyers and then finding you. It is a blessing.

So, thank you so very much from the bottom of my heart for everything.

Now I can work out what my life will be and try to carry on through the pain and anguish that this disability has put me through..

Although the money is important , the goal was to get the employer to be accountable for their lack of procedures and maybe make them aware that they can’t treat people who work for them with such disrespect.

It is time to move on with my life. Once again. Thank you very much.
