I work with: I manage personal injury litigation for the Transport Accident Commission and Worksafe Victoria.
Trends in my area: Our experience has been of an increase in the number of psychiatric injuries and complex chronic pain conditions. We continue to be focused on the proper delivery of compensation and scheme viability in the context of an evolving industrial, social and litigation landscape.
I predict the next big thing will be: The Victorian Government is in the process of reviewing workers’ compensation legislation and to modernise the WorkCover Scheme. We await to see the direction of the revised legislation and how it impacts on claims management and outcomes and litigation.
My proudest achievement: I am proud to work in a high performing and collaborative team at HW.
Outside work you’ll find me: I enjoy spending time with my family at the beach, practising Pilates and thoroughbred racing.
If I wasn’t a lawyer, I would be: I am a team-oriented person. I think that I may have pursued a career in the health sector if I was not a lawyer.
