Offer Increased Six-Fold

I was referred to Kakulas Legal by my car insurer RAC.

I was most grateful to RAC for the referral as I ended up so much better off having engaged Peter Kakulas to represent me.

As an Occupational Therapist who has worked to help injured workers get back to work I had experience dealing with insurance companies such as the Insurance Commission.  I realised however that even with all my knowledge of compensation law and how insurance companies operate I was out of my depth and unable to continue to represent myself.

The highest offer I was able to obtain from the Insurance Commission was $18,440 after an initial offer of settlement of my claim of $6,775.00.  I had hoped to settle my claim with the Insurance Commission for around $50,000 and I had made an offer of $55,000 but when the Insurance Commission would not increase I engaged Peter Kakulas.

He immediately reviewed the materials, wrote to the Insurance Commission and wrote to my treating doctors to obtain more medical reports.   Peter Kakulas took a detailed statement from me and advised and guided me throughout the case.  Peter managed to obtain a settlement for me of over $110,000 after all expenses including legal fees had been paid.  I saw Peter Kakulas on 5 occasions and a solicitor in his firm on 5 occasions over less than 2 years. Legal proceedings were commenced in my case out of the District Court and my claim was settled out of Court at a Pre-trial Conference.

I would thoroughly recommend Kakulas Legal as the above outcome is testimony to its results for me.
