For everyone Hidden entitlements for long-term injury
Redlich’s recently assisted a client to obtain ‘no-fault’ compensation for injuries sustained over his years as a teacher at a school for students with special needs. While there, he suffered injury to his shoulders in various incidents that occurred across a decade.
Whilst each instance could be seen as minor, as they accumulated he began to struggle significantly with pain and restriction.
When the client reached out to Redlich’s to discuss an unrelated injury, his solicitor identified the shoulder injuries and the possibility for a ‘no-fault’ claim for compensation, or impairment benefit claim.
This was made by Redlich’s on behalf of the client, accepted by the insurer, and an award of over $22,000 was paid to the client for an injury he was not initially aware would entitle him to compensation.
