Many of our clients would have seen our partner, Courtenay Poulden appear on Today Tonight recently. Courtenay was being interviewed following a decision of the Supreme Court which accepted our argument that our client was entitled to substantial compensation as a result of negligent dental treatment. Hospital and medical negligence is a major part of our practice so make sure you take a look at our frequently asked questions if you have any queries.

Courtenay Poulden was also interviewed by A Current Affair in July 2009 regarding a client who was badly injured in an attack outside a nightclub. While BPC achieved a positive result with the judge awarding over $4 million compensation to the client, unfortunately the nightclub’s foreign registered insurer has since closed. This has sadly resulted in no one being left to pursue for the cross claims or to pay the compensation the client deserved.
