Over many years I have successfully acted for numerous foreign visitors to NSW who have been seriously injured in road accidents whilst here.
Invariably these accident victims are repatriated to their home countries by their travel insurers soon after their hospital treatment, or in serious cases they are medically evacuated for treatment such as major surgery to take place at home.
The only way I have been able to get the full picture of what these clients have suffered and to understand the impact their injuries have had on their lives and livelihood is to travel overseas to see them.
This has also given me the opportunity to meet members of their families, their employers and work colleagues and their doctors.
Once armed with all the information I need, I’ve either been able to settle their claims or obtained court orders for their cases to be heard overseas by NSW judges or lawyers.
At last count I’ve travelled to 23 countries ( England, Scotland, Ireland, Holland, Sweden, Norway, Belgium, France, Austria, Germany, Italy, Spain, Slovakia, Lebanon, India, Japan, South Korea, Indonesia, Hong Kong, USA, New Zealand, West Indies, Samoa), some of them several times.
All of these cases have been successfully finalised. This would not have happened had I tried to prepare the cases from here and engaged local agents.
At Stacks Goudkamp we will travel anywhere and everywhere to achieve the best results for our injured clients.
