Coal Mining Brain Injury

9 March 2022

Whitelaw McDonald very recently successfully completed a workers compensation claim against Coal Mines Insurance for injuries sustained by a Coal Miner in his journey home from work.

Our client was riding his motorcycle when an accident occurred causing him to fall from the cycle suffering injuries.

Our client believed that his ability to concentrate was impaired.

Whitelaw McDonald engaged the services of a Neurological Physiotherapist and Clinical Psychologist together wit a Neurosurgeon, all of whom supported our client's case that he had sustained a permanent brain injury.

Whitelaw McDonald instituted court proceedings against Coal mines Insurance causing Coal Mines Insurance to offer to settle the matter rather than proceed to Court.  Settlement was achieved on handsome terms favourable to our client.

The terms of the settlement entitle our claim to ongoing payments of weekly compensation until he is 68 years of age which supplement his income from his non coal mining lighter duties work.
