The 2019 Annual Wheelchair Sports Charity Luncheon was held at Dockside, Cockle Bay Wharf last Friday. A group of Stacks Goudkamp lawyers and senior staff were pleased to attend and support this wonderful charity.
Wheelchair Sports NSW was formed in 1961 and is a charitable organisation. Wheelchair Sports NSW hosts a series of international, national and local sporting competitions in various sports each year, as well as providing subsidised access for members to attend other events interstate and internationally.
The MC on the day, Stephanie Brantz, was joined by guest speakers, Rod Macqueen AM and NSW Rugby Coach, Liesl Tesch AM, BSc, MP and 7 x Paralympian and NSW MP, Brad Fittler, NSW Blues Coach and former Captain and Madison de Rozario, World Champion and Paralympian in road racing.
We also heard from the amazing Louise Sauvage OAM, one of our most renowned paralympic wheelchair racers and a leading coach.
Each year the Wheelchair Charity Luncheon raises much needed funds to provide sporting equipment and wheelchairs to encourage those living with disabilities to participate in sport.
We continue to be proud of our association with WSNSW and look forward to the 2020 Stacks Goudkamp Charity Golf Day at the beautiful St Michaels Golf Club.
whether the victim was especially vulnerable to the risk of injury in question;
whether the wrongdoer had special control or knowledge over the circumstances that led to the injury;
whether any duty of care imposed would collide with statutory obligations owed by the wrongdoing; and
whether imposing a duty of care would result in the wrongdoer being exposed to liability the extent of which could not be predicted easily in advance.
Depending on the facts of the case, factors (1) and (2) might support the existence of a duty; factors (3) and (4), conversely, might point against a duty. These factors are, of course, merely illustrative. There are many other potentially relevant considerations.

I could write a book as to how the last 4 years would have been different if not for Tom and his team.
The support, assistance, advice from the first conversation till even after the settlement was second to none from the team at Stacks Goudkamp.
Four years on and after many downs, my children and I have our lives back.
We are unable to THANK YOU enough, but know that you have changed our lives for the better in so many ways since the accident.
