Incident: John had a personal injury claim with another firm of solicitors who negligently under settled his case.
Settlement: We were able to negotiate a settlement to top up John’s earlier claim to what he should have received.

John contacted us through a personal friend and instructed us to look into the previous settlement.  We agreed that John’s solicitors had been negligent and as a result, we sued the former solicitors for negligence and were able to obtain a settlement from them to top up John’s settlement money to what he should have received.  On top of this, the insurance company agreed to pay our costs.

Incident: John was involved in a serious motor vehicle accident due to another driver’s negligence.
Settlement: We negotiated a settlement sum for John of $475,000.

John’s left knee was badly injured and he was unable to continue working as a truck driver. John was aged 63 and had hoped to work until age 70, but could not find a suitable job due to his injuries. He was forced to rely on Centrelink benefits.

When John contacted us he was unaware of his rights against the insurer of the at fault driver, NRMA, and his claim was significantly out of time.

Premier Lawyers succeeded in having NRMA accept the claim despite it being lodged out of time. When John’s permanent impairment was assessed at 4% by a government doctor from the Medical Assessment Service, we successfully appealed this decision, increasing the figure for John’s permanent impairment to 30%. This meant John was entitled to much more compensation.

NRMA made an initial settlement offer of $20,000, which we knew to be far less than the true value of the claim. Six months later we negotiated a settlement sum for John of $475,000.
