Widow settled out of court back in 1989/1990 and under duress, accepted an out of court settlement offer for her husband's (a mine contractor) death, and is only now realising two things: 1. She believes secrets were kept from her about HOW AND WHY her husband died 2. She believes she was underpaid as she had no one to advise her how to work through the legal aspects of his death. She was just offered and she accepted in her grief. Now she wants to know if the WorkSafe Victoria will represent her and redress the poor outcome for her and her children. The youngest was 14 at the time and she had increasing continued involvement in comforting and raising all three (14,21,23) in view of the emotional mess that ensued. She has been told to get together $10,000 for the Supreme Court (application cost only) and go to a lawyer. But I wonder if she should not approach the WorkSafe Victoria to represent her? (as she has no money, is a pensioner at 68) OR WorkSafe to at least advise her HOW AND IF it is possible to reopen the case and make the information that was NOT OFFERED and not asked for in her grief NOW TRANSPARENT. She is reluctant to make waves.
