Hello Sunshine Coast Community,
Moving Forward had been asked by members of the Sunshine Coast community to organise an information session on how to lodge a claim for compensation for injuries arising as a side effect of Covid-19 vaccines/injections.
The Australian Federal Government officially opened a compensation scheme for those experiencing injuries caused by Covid-19 vaccines on 13th of December, 2021 and the scheme will expire in April 2024.
Donna McManus will help guide us through completing the paperwork and lodging the claim. She holds a Bachelor of Laws and a Master of Laws from the Queensland University of Technology. Donna was admitted as a Solicitor of the Supreme Court of Queensland and the High Court of Australia in 1997.
In 2014 Donna McManus founded Murphy’s Law Accident Lawyers, the group has become an award-winning injury firm, practising from Brisbane. Following the introduction of the Covid-19 Vaccine Claims Scheme by the Australian Government, Donna has been leading the Murphy’s Law team in the assessment of COVID-19 vaccine injury compensation claims for those suffering severe side effects.
Allyse Liddy is currently studying a Bachelor of Laws at Queensland University of Technology. She has also played a key role in the development of the Murphy’s Law Accident Lawyers’ COVID-19 vaccine claims division. Allyse has significant knowledge of the scheme.
As the process of lodging a claims is lengthy and not easy to navigate, it is very important those who have been injured become familiar with how to register and commence the process as soon as possible. It is also important we learn what is involved in order to support our community, neighbours, family members, relatives or partners who have been injured and are suffering.
Raelene Kennedy is the wonderful and very brave mother of Caitlin Gotze, a 23-year Toowoomba women who was working as a Leading Hand for Racing QLD at the stables in Toowoomba. Caitlin was fit, strong, healthy and vibrant young woman with no known medical conditions. When her employer imposed the mandated on all employees, Caitlin held out as long as she could but finally had to get the Covid-19 injections in order to keep her job. She became very ill after her second Covid-19 injection and died at her workplace on 17th November 2021.
Caitlin’s mother, Raelene, has made it her mission to raise awareness about the potential injuries and deaths caused as side effects of the Covid-19 Injections. We are very grateful to Raelene who has kindly agreed to share her personal story about her experience with numerous Governments Departments while trying to obtain information relating to the cause of her daughter’s death.
Our guest speaker will participate in the Q & A session after the presentation to help us explore the options available to us, and ways to move forward.
