Back injury victim granted right to sue for compensation

Back injury victim granted right to sue for compensation

The Victorian WorkCover Authority has conceded that an Adviceline Injury Lawyers client has a serious back injury, and should be entitled to sue for her pain and suffering damages.

The worker suffered injury to her back while working with disabled children. She was able to get back to work as an office administrator, but no longer able to do the work she loved in the special needs classroom. The VWA tried to argue that her injury was not serious as the worker was able to return to full time employment.

The matter did not resolve at a conference, so Stella Gold of Adviceline Injury Lawyers assisted the worker take the matter all the way to the County Court. On the second day of the hearing the VWA pulled out, agreeing the worker had a serious injury, and finally granting her the right to sue for her pain and suffering compensation.
