WorkCover Compensation Claim
I hurt my back and shoulder after a fall at work in December 2011. My boss was actually present when I hurt myself. However, I could not keep working and I had to stop work as a result of my injury. I didn’t know what to do. I went and saw Michael W Speck & Co and it turned out that I had not lodged the right form to claim compensation and so they helped me fill out and lodge the form in the beginning of 2014, then I started receiving income maintenance. I also obtained a lump sum for whole person impairment and an overall settlement. I was happy with the outcome.
Clint G – Aberfoyle Park, aged 59
I lived on Kangaroo Island and had two injuries, one in January 2006 to my neck and then again to my neck in May 2011 and both shoulders. I lodged claims for both, one was accepted and one was rejected. I saw Michael W Speck & Co and they have handled the many disputes through the Workers Compensation Tribunal. I have been able to get back to work, but not fully. I have been able to finalise my claim with an overall settlement which includes all medical expenses and lump sum payment which includes a whole person impairment lump sum. Living in the country there is not much support which caused a few problems, but overall I am happy with the result I got.

Personal Injury Claim - Car Accident
I was driving on Fullarton Road waiting for a gap in traffic to turn right, when another car ran into the back of my car. I hurt my back and my neck. I was not working at the time. I sought help from Michael W Speck & Co. I was able to obtain an overall settlement which covered pain and suffering, future care and future medical expenses. I am very happy with the result. I would not have known what to do myself.
Margaret – Adelaide Hills
My husband and I were both sitting having a coffee at an outdoor table at a bakery when a car ran into us. We each sustained terrible injuries. Michael W Speck & Co provided a lot of help right from the first day. After recovering from our injuries we were able to resolve our claims without having to go to Court and with the best possible outcome.
Jean P - Morphett Vale
After having a fairly acrimonious breakdown of my marriage, I was not able to negotiate a division of property. Our four children all lived with me. I went to Michael W Speck & Co and even though an Application had to be issued in the Court, settlement was negotiated on terms which I was extremely happy with. I was impressed with the negotiating skills Michael W Speck & Co brought to the case.
Ian M – Black Forest
I separated from my ex-husband many years ago. I then reached an in principle settlement for division of property. Michael W Speck & Co drew up the terms of agreement in such a way that we were able to have an Order made for division of property in the Family Court. This was done smoothly and with minimum fuss. I would definitely recommend them.
Sandra E – Happy Valley
I was named the executor in my mother’s Will. After she died I went and saw Michael W Speck & Co and they did all the necessary work to apply for Probate and gathered in all the assets of the estate and distributed them. It was all respectfully done reasonably quickly and without too much hassle for me. I found the staff to be very efficient and helpful. Without hesitation I would highly recommend the firm Michael W Speck & Co.
I fell into a stormwater drain at my local shopping centre after the cover on it collapsed. I sustained a fracture to my chest as well as general bruising. I went and saw Michael W Speck & Co and they were able to successfully wrap up my claim for compensation within four months. I was very happy with this outcome.
Cherrie – Morphett Vale
I hurt my back and left elbow when working as a labourer for a labour hire company at a local Council. The claim was accepted and I had been off work for a long time when the Compensating Authority stopped paying me. Michael W Speck & Co took the case to the Workers Compensation Tribunal. They resolved the case for a good overall settlement. The case was wrapped up quickly and I felt they did very well and I was happy with the service.

Workers Compensation – January 2016
I slipped on the back of a truck in November 2010 injuring my hip when working on a road gang. I told my employer about the injury. I later went and saw Michael W Speck & Co and it turned out that I had not lodged the correct claim form, which I then did in May 2014. My claim was initially rejected. I disputed it in the Workers Compensation Tribunal and my claim was resolved with a result that I am very happy with. I am grateful for everything Michael W Speck & Co did for me.
