I highly recommend HCA if you have a personal injury as henry has a wealth of knowledge in this area, is a straight shooter and has helped me and my family out immensely. Not only do I reccomend him as a lawyer I class him as a friend.

Google ReviewerGary Hosking (TAC Claim)

I was involved in a hit and run at work. I sustained multiple injuries and to be honest my life has never been the same as my injuries are permanent unfortunately. I was in a dark place feeling lost and depressed, no where to turn until a friend said why don't you give Henry Carus a call and so i did! after my first meeting with Henry Carus and Darren Thomas i left feeling like there was some hope not all doom and gloom. Darren kept in touch regularly and he kept me up to date with my claim. We recently settled my claim with great results they fought intensively to settle my claim. Henry Carus&Associates and Darren Thomas worked above and beyond, They are real professionals and simple the best. Highly recommended Henry Carus & Associates.

Google ReviewerBrett Stringer (TAC Claim)

I was very nervous about my compensation claim and even making one in the first place. I did quite a bit of research and decided to set up some meetings with a few of the high profile players, as well as HCA. I met with Dino at HCA first, and needless to say, cancelled all other firms' appointments. The care, sensitivity and expertise with which Henry, Dino and the team at HCA handled my case was outstanding. I could not have asked for more professionalism and service. They did it all. I was so impressed with how everything came to a conclusion and their well balanced advice, plus Henry's personal involvement in my claim showed me I was far more than just a number. Thanks guys. My family owes you one!!

Google ReviewerPhilip Craig (WorkCover Claim)

I first met Henry Carus in 2015 after a serious back injury sustained at work in December 2014. Henry struck me as passionate about people with personal injuries and obtaining the best possible outcome for them. He has an infectious personality and I felt he cared and believed me right from the start. Henry explained to me that he thought I had a good case and what the plan would be going forward in a clear concise manner that was easy to understand. With Ryan Moran at his side, who shares the same ethos and work ethic, they were both able to work through the many problems that arose and deliver a great result without going to court. With much gratitude,
Philip Craig

Google ReviewerMargaret H. (WorkCover Claim)

I can highly recommend Henry and his team, especially Ryan who has worked and continues to advocate tirelessly for my case! Finding someone to represent you fairly and honestly can be both difficult and overwhelming; if you have been injured and need help do yourself a favour and don’t hesitate to contact this wonderful firm. You will be treated as a person and not a dollar figure and you can rest assured that you are in good hands!!

My personal injury attorney from Henry Carus & Associates was really incredible. She found a great strategy for me to use, coached me through every part of the process and worked hard to get me a huge settlement. Though I hope I never have to go through the Melbourne court again, I'll definitely call them if I do.
