Tekeste Andermeskel came to our office seeking help after being injured in a motor vehicle accident. Tekeste is a highly educated man, who due to circumstances found himself driving a taxi in Melbourne for a living. He was injured when a police vehicle collided into his taxi while taking part in a police chase of another vehicle whose occupants had committed a crime.
Tekeste suffered injuries that left him unable to return to driving a taxi and sought our assistance in seeking compensation. Over time we ensured his WorkCover benefits were aptly provided and eventually sought from TAC his serious injury certificate and common law compensation. All went well except for the value of his claim, where TAC in our early conference did not wish to offer what we thought was a reasonable sum for his claim. Legal proceedings were issued and after a bit of more work we were able to achieve a significant increase in the settlement amount without having to go to court. The process reinforced our firm’s views that better outcomes can many times be achieved with a bit of more work and patience.
