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: Jose was employed as a plasterer and injured his knee way back in 2007.
Settlement: Premier Lawyers settled the case via negotiations for $400,000 clear of WCC payments made to date.

Jose is a 57-year-old man who injured his knee whilst using a wheelbarrow at work way back in 2007.

It was agreed that Jose suffered greater than 15% whole person impairment around December 2018 therefore rendering him eligible to make a workplace injury damages claim.

 

Further complicating things was the fact that Jose severely injured his back in 2005 and had a serious motor vehicle accident in 2013.

Jose instructed 9 separate firms of solicitors before coming to Premier Lawyers.  He terminated the previous solicitor’s instructions as they were only able to get a total offer of approximately $110,000.  After two informal settlement conferences, we were able to settle the matter for $400,000.  Premier Lawyers are now investigating the 2005 back injury claim.

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.

Incident: Colleen was disinherited by her father and left out of his will.
Settlement: Due to the small size of the estate, Premier Lawyers negotiated a fair settlement prior to commencing proceedings in the Supreme Court.

Due to the small size of the estate, Premier Lawyers negotiated a fair settlement prior to commencing proceedings in the Supreme Court. This was a very small estate which would have been completely eaten up in legal fees had the case have gone to court. Premier Lawyers put our client’s interests first and were able to negotiate an agreement without incurring a large amount of legal costs for having the matter progress through court.

Colleen was disinherited by her father and there were 7 other potential claimants.  The estate was so small that any will dispute had the potential to ensure that no one was left with anything if the estate was not handled with great caution and care.

We were able to do this and resolve the matter for our client for a satisfactory amount.

Our client owned her own home with no mortgage, a good income and very low needs.

Despite these obvious hurdles we were able to get a very good result for Gail and worked well into the night before the mediation to get it resolved to save the costs of the mediation which was much appreciated as those savings went straight to Gail.

Incident: Shannon’s father passed away and left his entire estate to his business partner/de facto completely cutting Shannon out and leaving her with nothing.
Settlement: Premier lawyers commenced the claim in court and resolved the matter at a court-ordered mediation for over 60% of the total of the Estate.

Shannon lived in QLD and her father lived and passed in NSW. Upon hearing Shannon had been completely left out of her fathers will Premier lawyers flew to QLD to meet with Shannon.

We commenced a claim in NSW on Shannon’s behalf and opposed the Estate being wholly left to the business partner/de facto of 25 years.

Shannon suffers from a number of physical and psychological conditions and relied heavily upon the private health insurance paid by her father whilst he was alive. Once he passed this got cut off as the business partner/de facto refused to pay the ongoing costs. During a pandemic!!

Premier Lawyers stepped in and paid the monthly fees for the duration of the claim (interest-free) and took the matter to a mediation where we negotiated a resolution which resulted in Shannon receiving more than 60% of the Estate.

In our experience daughters against de facto’s generally get awarded a much lower percentage so this was a very good result.

In addition, there were a number of family heirlooms that held great sentimental value to Shannon and we were able to get the Estate to agree to release these to Shannon and delivered them to Shannon free of charge.

Incident: Tris’s mother passed away in QLD and left him approximately 1% of her modest estate. Tris was also out of time to make a claim and lives in NSW.
Settlement: Premier Lawyers sought leave to proceed with the claim even though it was out of time and settled the matter at mediation.

Rather than leave her Estate to her son, it was alleged Tris’s mother spitefully left small amounts of her Estate to several different recipients with which she had little to no contact.

Tris had left it too late to claim so Premier Lawyers would have to seek leave and make an application to the Court and convince the Court that Tris should be allowed to proceed with a claim despite being too late.

There were approximately 8 parties involved and mediation was held via zoom and we were able to negotiate a settlement for Tris to receive 47.5% of the Estate. Much better than the 1% he was originally left.

We were told that Tris was left so little because his mother changed the will after Tris got divorced because she liked his then-wife.

Michelle lived in Perth while her mother lived and died in Victoria. It was alleged that her brother manipulated the mother to change her will and the will was in fact changed 4 months before her passing.

Premier Lawyers commenced proceedings in Victoria and mediation was arranged with the judicial registrar and court-appointed mediator presiding. It was a very stressful claim as there were allegations of sexual abuse and further issues causing great distress to Michelle.

Michelle’s brother had greater needs than she and we were able to come to an agreement that saw Michelle receive approximately 40% of the 90% left to her brother.

Anne had initially instructed another law firm to manage her claim, but they failed to protect her interests, the time to bring a claim before the court had expired, ending Anne’s rights to compensation. Despite this, Premier Compensation Lawyers were able to negotiate a settlement for Anne in the sum of $520,000.
