JANE’S CASE EXPERIENCE
Accident at work claim: Jane acted for a client in respect of a serious accident at work, where their leg was completely de-gloved after being hit by a forklift truck driven by an inexperienced driver who failed to follow procedures. The employer had also failed to properly designate traffic routes and implement a safe system of work. Jane secured a significant six figure sum for the client at a Joint Settlement Meeting following the commencement of court proceedings.
Psychological injury claim: Jane acted for a bereaved family who witnessed the death of their husband and father following a hit and run, by a subsequently identified drunk driver. Jane managed to establish that the clients were all secondary victims, despite one family member not having witnessed the accident. Significant damages were obtained for all family members, who all suffered post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and resultant losses.
