I was a victim of two car accidents 4 years ago. My claim was lodged with workcover. I went through many examinations etc., and I was told that the personal injuries would be split between the 2 separate insurance companies because the accidents were only 4 days apart and it was unreasonable to say that one accident was more damaging than the other. I engaged a solicitor who then appointed another solicitor for my 2 cases. It took nearly two years from memory to get to a meeting between the insurance parties. I was offered a settlement from one life insurance company but the other made a insulting offer based on a picture of an undamaged number plate. I then discovered that workcover had not registered the 2 accidents on it's file so only 1 case settlement had to repay there expenses. I was encourage to accept the 2 offer that was not linked to workcover, I said I would think about it. To my amazement I was told that it was settled and the paperwork was ready to sign. I expressed my disapproval to the decision but my solicitors forced me to sign through several emails saying that I had said yes etc., and that I would get any more for the claim. I continued to say no but after a month of indecision I was convinced to accept the offer because I was assured I would get the same amount from the unsettled claim based on the doctors results etc. The case then went from bad to worse. My solicitor was arrested and charged with multiple drug offences and I have not been able to find anyone willing to help me because of the unprofessional and incompetent way the case was run. I live on constant medication, have had 6 or more spinal injection to my spinal nerves so I can get relief, I can only work to 50% of my original capacity. What can I do? I was the victim left unable to afford the operation I need to get back to a better lifestyle.
