Experience

With over eight years’ experience in personal injuries claims management within Allianz Australia’s CTP Department, Elizabeth joined HBA shortly after being admitted to legal practice. As a Team Leader at Allianz, Elizabeth managed claims from the date of lodgement through to resolution.

Elizabeth has a Bachelor of Science from Macquarie University (2008), a Graduate Diploma of Law (2016) and Practical Legal Training qualification from the College of Law (2017). She was admitted as a practicing solicitor in April 2018.

Areas of expertise

Elizabeth came to HBA with a wealth of knowledge in personal injury claims, compensation to relatives claims and recovery claims brought pursuant to section 151Z of the Workers Compensation Act 1987 (NSW). She is experienced at analysing medical issues, assessing causation, quantifying claims and setting strategies, as well as drafting submissions pertaining to the Motor Accidents Compensation Act 1999 (NSW) and the Civil Liability Act (NSW). One of her core strengths lies in the ability to arrive at liability determinations pursuant to section 81 of the Motor Accidents Compensation Act 1999 (NSW), which requires the analysis of the accident itself, as well as the injuries alleged to have been sustained.

Elizabeth is skilled at negotiating settlement of claims and her background in Science gives her the technical edge when it comes to factual investigations, as well as medical causation.

Why clients like her

Working for an insurer for almost eight years has given Elizabeth an understanding of client needs and expectations that is second to none. She is personable, approachable and solutions focused.
