Psychological and Bullying Compensation Case Studies
Our client was a young man employed as a safety officer on a major construction site. He was earning a good salary and had great career prospects.
A young apprentice sustained fatal injuries and our client arrived at the scene shortly afterwards and rendered assistance but was unable to save the life of the young apprentice. Our client suffered catastrophic psychological injuries and developed major depression and became addicted to alcohol and gambling. His relationship broke down and he was unable to return to any form of work.
A claim for damages for loss of earnings was made against his employer in the Supreme Court and settlement was achieved. We also successfully claimed substantial lump sum payments for total and permanent disability under our client’s superannuation policies.
