compensated – early retirement
Mr K had been working for the same trucking company for nearly 20 years and was a model employee. Unfortunately, when poor Mr K finally told his employer that he had hurt his knees at work after suffering for years, the insurance company did not want a bar of it. They blamed his previous employer as he had injured his knees years and years ago.
We went above and beyond to prove that Mr K’s work with the trucking company had aggravated his previous work injury so they should pay for not only his surgery to both knees but also his weekly compensation for having to retire early. We are sure there are plenty of employers out there who wished they had hard working employees like Mr K!
Compensation for left knee
replacement due to injury on right knee
Ms S recently won her case in relation to her left knee injury. Her left knee injury was found to be due to her altered gait/posture, which was the result of a work injury to her right knee. Ms S had been favouring her right knee for years. This put extra pressure on her left knee for support. The result of which meant she eventually needed a total left knee replacement.
The insurer disputed the claim saying that there was no link between her original right knee injury and her left knee injury. However, the Workers Compensation Commission found the case in her favour. This significantly increased her future workers compensation entitlements.
“I selected Bourke Love because of their expert reputation in law and they were highly recommended by many people I had sought advice from. I believe the people who would benefit most from their knowledge and expertise are those, who like me, have suffered with a long ongoing work related injury and are neglected by the employer.”

Brendan made a terrible time in my life bearable. He was always one step ahead of the opposition, was always very positive and I have never met anyone who worked so hard and cared so much for his client. I know, without a doubt, my outcome would have been very different if I hadn't had Brendan Bourke and Bourke Love Lawyers on my side. I would recommend Bourke Love Lawyers without hesitation.
Extremely thorough, professional and prepared to explain the process in an easy to follow manner throughout a complex series of matters. The work of Pania and her staff has been second to none and greatly appreciated.
Excellent. Lynetta was all over my case. Knew exactly what she was talking about and we got the best result possible. I can’t thank her enough. She's made such a difference to my future.
I recommend Pania Watt and her team at Bourke Love Lawyers without hesitation or reservation. Knowledgeable, diligent, a professional comes quickly to mind, but so too that I felt supported, understood, my questions answered quickly and with consideration. If there were more stars available, I'd use them all.
I feel very fortunate to have engaged the services of Brendan Bourke. Brendan has a reputation for providing a caring and professional approach. I required a competent, dedicated lawyer and was recommended Brendan by a previous client. Brendan and his team went the "extra mile" and it was comforting to finally have someone standing in my corner with my best interests at heart. If you require this type of service you won't find better. Thank you, Brendan and team.
The team at Bourke Love is extraordinary. Their professionalism and manner are second to none. Pania Watt was thorough in all aspects of my legal journey and made sure I was understanding what was happening at all times. Her caring and light disposition was a pleasure, during a tough and stressful time. I'd highly recommend Bourke Love to all.
