Key Practice Areas
Gerard practices primarily in personal injury. He concentrates on personal injury, particularly motor accident compensation claims, public liability matters, workers compensation and superannuation claims for total and permanent disablement. Gerard is not one to simply be bullied by an insurance company and settle a case as quickly as possible. If an insurance company will not pay a fair and reasonable settlement he has experience litigating and winning matters in the:-
- Claims Assessment Resolution Service (The CARS tribunal deals specifically with motor accident claims)
- Workers Compensation Commission
- District Court of New South Wales
- Supreme Court of New South Wales
- Supreme Court, Court of Appeal New South Wales
Gerard has recently been accredited and recognised as a specialist in personal injury law, by the Law Society of New South Wales. An accreditation only achieved with 5 plus years of experience and the requisite knowledge to achieve the right outcomes for clients.
Gerard is based in our Penrith office. This is a great fit for Gerard as he was born and raised in Penrith and understands, better than most, the needs of his clients in his local community. An example of this is that Gerard understands it is not easy for clients, particularly injured clients, to hop on multiple trains or battle the traffic and find parking to see barristers or doctors in Sydney. He, therefore arranges conferences with barristers at our office and appointments with Doctor’s and specialists within the local community. Gerard prides himself on maximising his client’s compensation entitlements, whether it be through a swift and carefully negotiated settlement, or whether running a matter at hearing. As Gerard’s client you will know when your matter should be finalised as he will keep you advised every step of the way.
