Hello
I assume you were bashed whilst in custody?
If so, then yes, you do have a case, if you can prove that corrective services were negligent.
You should speak with a solicitor who deals in such matters, generally Criminal lawyers in NSW deal with such matters. Speak with the law Society and they can refer you to one:
http://www.lawsociety.com.au

You need to gather all your medical reports and the like in support.

It is a common occurrence sadly.

I wish to help you in this situation.

I have a Work Cover claim that I have referred to a
Hi Pearl, I have a Work Cover claim that I have referred to a solicitor in my trade union. However, I am a little concerned that she does not want to see me in person and prefers to do everything via written correspondence and (I think) telephone correspondence. (I had one initial telephone conference which I found difficult to follow because of the amount of information given verbally, with no capacity to ask questions in the constant flow of information.) However, this is a lawyer who works for my trade union, so I assume they have my best interests at heart. But, if I commence with the TU lawyer and sign all the paperwork that she is my representative and I am not satisfied that she has fully exhausted all avenues, can I then take my case to another lawyer. I don't want to chase the law firms that advertise for compensation cases, because I don't know how much is hype. I want realistic advice, not "chase ambulance advice". However, I do want to know if I can go further if I'm uncertain about the advice I'm receiving. Regards, *****: Has anything been filed or reported?… read more
