Windy Conditions Causing Injury Compensation Claim

A Northern Beaches Club Injury  resulting in Compensation Claim  – $100,000

A pole hit the claimant at a Manly club and injured his chest and caused PTSD.

Injuries: Chest Wall, Thoracic Spine, Right Shoulder Injury Compensation Claim 

The subject accident occurred on 2nd December 2018 at approximately 2:00 pm in the afternoon. The incident occurred at the Club on the edge of Sydney Harbour.  It was very windy in the afternoon. Our client recalls that he was sitting at a small cocktail table on a stool when the incident occurred. He recalls that because it was a very windy day all of the umbrellas around the tables had been tied down except for one umbrella. This umbrella was being used to provide shade to a guitar player and was attached to a rope. The umbrella was a large garden umbrella, with a steel pipe at its tip. Our client had just started on his first beer. He recalls that he looked up and saw the big garden umbrella had come loose due to a heavy gust of wind and was flying towards him. Our client did not have time to take evasive action. The steel pipe at the end of the heavy garden umbrella impacted our client at its point, on his right upper chest wall with blunt force. The impact of this event knocked our client off the back of his chair and he fell onto the ground. Our client recalls that he slowly rose to his feet in shock. He initially felt as though he was going to die. He became aware of excruciating pain in his right chest wall and shoulder region. The large commercial garden umbrella flew over the railing near our client’s table and into Sydney Harbour. he recalls that he was assisted by bystanders.

Northern Beaches Trip Fall Compensation Claim Lawyer

A lady tripped over in a shopping plaza leading a to shoulder injury

Northern Beaches – $120,000 Personal Injury Claim for Negligence

Our client tripped outside a store within a small shopping plaza on the Northern Beaches.  She injured both arms in the fall and sustained a shoulder injury which required surgery.  We successfully sued the shopping centre and we got $120,000 compensation for our (now) happy client.

Torts | Negligence | Personal Injury

She tripped after exiting the doorway, lost her footing and fell to the ground. The fall was a result of an uneven gradient going down when exiting the store, without any visible markings, we were able to demonstrate that the hazard was the fault of the shopping plaza.

We claimed for Damages, Interest and Costs.

Dear Sharron,
I would like to Thank you for everything you have done for me over the past year.  You were always quick to inform me of any progress and never failed to reply to any questions I had however small.  You were a pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend you to any one .

Very many thanks again.
Warmest regards

Travellator Trolley Injury Supermarket Claim Lawyer Dee Why Sydney

Trolley Travelator Injury at a Supermarket in Dee Why

Another great settlement last week for Sharron Vogel.  An 83-year-old lady sustained shoulder injuries when the wheels of a trolley at a popular supermarket in Dee Why failed to lock into the travellator.  She lost control of the trolley and it careered into a wall, bouncing back and causing severe injury to her shoulder, chest, face and resulted in a fall.

Her injuries required surgery and a gamut of specialist medical professionals including a Respiratory Physician, a General and Trauma Surgeon, an eye specialist, a cardiologist, an Occupational Therapist and GP’s, which meant that the out-of-pocket expenses have been significant.

She suffered an ongoing loss of movement to her arms and shoulders as a result of the dislocations and fractures.  She lived with constant pain, had an inability to lift heavy objects, had visible scarring from both the incident and the surgery, she had disrupted sleeping patterns and obviously still endures distress & anxiety.

It was found that the Supermarket failed in providing a duty of care and was in breach of the Work Health & Safety Act 2011.

Motorcycle Accident CTP Settlement Injury Claims Lawyer Sydney

Motorcycle accident claim in Cremorne – CTP scheme

Our client was riding his motorbike when he had a collision on Military Road, Cremorne, on his way to work.

This car coming from the opposite direction suddenly turned right and hit me. I remember glancing to my right, the car was already right upon me. I braked at that split second and then I blacked out. Then I remember opening my eyes, looking down along the road to my bike some distance away, I couldn’t breathe, I crawled off the road”

He was taken in an ambulance to Royal North Shore Hospital and was diagnosed with fractures to his shoulder blade, vertebra, and bruising and abrasions to his collarbone, shoulder and knees.

Our client felt pressure to return to work with only 2 weeks recovery time as he felt obliged to return early given it was a new job.

The assigned Workers Compensation Commission Approved Medical Specialist for Assessment of Permanent Impairment verified that the client suffered multiple injuries sustained in a motor vehicle accident last September, and would likely need paid help with repair and maintenance in the foreseeable future.

Sharron Vogel was successful in lodging a claim and receiving a settlement for our client.

Hi Sharron
Thank-you for representing me over the last 15months, we were very pleased with the outcome.
Regards
Rob

Child injured car accident compensation claim lawyer sydney

Car Accident injuring a child

This claim related to a 12-year-old child who was injured in a car accident when his father lost control of the vehicle.  The child was severely injured.

Other members of the family were also injured in the same car accident.  Our Lawyer, Sharron Vogel, sued the father through his CTP insurance policy.  We also ran and settled claims for the mother and two sisters.

The mother acted as a tutor for her son during the recovery.

Hi Sharon,

I would like to thank you and your team for all the hard work you have done for all of our settlements so that we could get the best outcome in our claim.

You were very efficient and informative. Received a compensation more then we expected, especially for Nikolas which will help tremendously in his future.

I’m very grateful for your hard work and will not hesitate to recommend you to any one needing your assistance.

My family are still suffering to some degree physical and mental issues, the monetary compensation has helped us with our everyday life and any future events that we might need to help us get close to 100% recovery.

Kind Regards

Jeannette

Slip fall footpath injury arm warriewood lawyer claim

Slip & Fall on a footpath in Warriewood

Our 58 y.o. client slipped on a footpath located at Warriewood Valley Sports Ground, Warriewood, and broke her shoulder.

She got a significant payout from the council which was an excellent result.

1. On 14 June 2018 and at all material times the defendant had the care, maintenance and control of a footpath located at Warriewood Valley Sports Ground, Warriewood (the footpath).

2. Part of the footpath connects the playing fields with the car park.

3. At this point, the footpath slopes in all directions down to a stormwater drain that is located at the bottom of the slope.

4. The stormwater drain was not positioned flush with the concrete of the footpath but protruded the surrounding footpath.

5. As a result, the footpath was a tripping hazard for users of the footpath exercising reasonable care for their own safety.

6. The concrete surrounding the stormwater drain was the same colour as the path with no delineation of the fact that is sloped and as a result, a person such as the plaintiff exercising reasonable care for her own safety could not discern the tripping hazard.

7. The tripping hazard in the footpath tripped the plaintiff causing her to fall to the ground and sustain injury.

(a) Injury to right arm;

 


Sharron Vogel handled my case in a trip and fall claim. She was so supportive and gave me the confidence to pursue the case.

I was very happy with my settlement and would highly recommend her.

I would like to thank you again for all your help and support throughout the case.

I’m very grateful and happy with the outcome.

I am reminded every day living with my injury that I’m glad I pursued with the case.

The council needed to take responsibility for their negligence, at least I know no one else will get hurt.

All the best
