Whiplash Injury Claims
The most common type of compensation received from a motor vehicle accident these days is for loss of wages for the potential that the injuries may prevent someone from working in the future. We recently acted on behalf of a client who sustained whiplash type injuries to the neck and back as a result of a rear end motor vehicle accident. This is a very common type of injury caused by motor accidents and one where substantial compensation can still be obtained.
Multiple Motor Vehicle Accidents
An out-of-control truck rolled onto its side at the intersection of Pittwater and Warringah roads in Dee Why, crashing over the median strip and colliding with eight cars, ultimately coming to rest on top of a vehicle with the occupants injured and trapped inside.
In all, six people had to be freed from their vehicles by the Fire Department and five were rushed to hospital, one by helicopter. While in this situation it is evident which vehicle caused the accident, this is not always the case.
Roadwork Council Negligence
Our client was involved in a road incident which resulted in a head on collusion with an oncoming vehicle and caused injury and damage for which she sought compensation.
The case was brought to the New South Wales Court of Appeals where they overturned a decision of the District Court resulting in a great outcome for our client.
