Type of Claim: Compulsory third party
Type of Injury: Multiple upper and lower limb injuries
Settlement: Six figure payout
Timeline: 3 years

Shaun contacted us about a motorbike accident in which he suffered multiple upper and lower limb injuries. Due to his injuries, he was unable to return to his pre-accident job. The impact of his physical injuries and the loss of his ability to work, caused him to develop a psychiatric injury.

Our Approach

We started a claim for Shaun against the CTP insurer on his behalf and liability for the circumstances of the accident was admitted in less than a month.

In preparing Shaun’s case:

  • we obtained expert medical evidence from a number of well regarded specialists
  • took numerous statements from family members and friends
  • provided Shaun with advice with respect to entitlements outside of the CTP scheme (statutory compensation and income protection)

Shaun’s claim was successfully settled in negotiations with lawyers for the CTP insurer after 2 settlement conferences.  The offer extracted from the insurer at the 2nd conference was over 50% higher than the offer at the first conference.
