The Facts about James Taylor’s Road Accident and Settlement Process

James Taylor, a logistics coordinator, was the at-fault driver in a multi-vehicle collision on Bruce Highway between Benaraby and Calliope. He sustained multiple injuries, most notably to his left leg, which included peroneal nerve palsy with foot drop. James initiated a workcover statutory lump sum claim, and after appealing an unsatisfactory first notice of assessment, his impairment percentage was increased significantly.

The Claim Process on James Taylor's Road Accident


Initial Statutory Claim and Appeal

Initially receiving a 20% impairment rating, James appealed this assessment due to the severity and long-term impact of his injuries.


Reassessment and Increase in Compensation

The appeal resulted in his impairment assessment increasing to 38%, which substantially raised his compensation.


Acceptance of Increased Offer

The revised statutory offer of $194,000 was accepted by James, appropriately compensating him for the injuries sustained.

Settlement Details: Statutory Notice of Assessment offer accepted at $194,000, a significant increase from the initial offer, reflecting the successful appeal and accurate assessment of his injuries.
