Wyatts Compensation Lawyers have an outstanding record of achieving positive outcomes for clients. While most cases are settled out of court, Wyatts have a strong history of representing clients at all levels of the legal system, from local courts to the High Court.
Below are three landmark cases that illustrate our success:
Grace Wang’s Catastrophic Epidural Injury
In a tragic case of medical negligence during the birth of her son, Grace Wang was administered antiseptic rather than anaesthetic while receiving an epidural. As a consequence, Grace acquired nerve damage that has left her in constant pain and has rendered her paralysed from the waist down. She was unable to hold and care for her son; and her husband, Jason Zheng, has had to care for Grace. Ultimately, the Chinese-Australian family have endured a great deal of psychological distress caused by this catastrophic epidural injury.
Neville Wyatt and the Wyatts legal team achieved a successful compensation claim for Grace Wang and her family. Subsequently, they have been able to move into a new home equipped to support the needs of the family. Read more about Grace Wang’s experience in this Sydney Morning Herald article.
B Watson vs Chief of Army
Wyatts achieved a victory for their client, B Watson, at a Defence Force Discipline Appeal Tribunal. The successful appeal resulted in the overturning of a conviction and sentence previously imposed by the Defence Force Magistrate. In addition to the appeal success, Wyatts claimed legal costs for the client from the Chief of Army.

Mediation with the Commonwealth of Australia
Solicitor Director Julie Wyatt successfully represented members of the Royal Australian Air Force in 30 mediations against the Commonwealth of Australia. These complex mediations, commonly referred to as the deseal/reseal cases, sought to achieve compensation for significant injuries sustained by servicemen and women as a consequence of toxic chemical exposure while working on the F-111 aircraft.
Julie achieved an unheard of 100% success rate in obtaining compensation for these workplace injuries, and consequently, she has been pivotal in significantly changing the lives of these plaintiffs.
For the third year running, Wyatts are proud sponsors of the 2017 Social Work in Emergency Department and Intensive Care Unit Forum.
Wyatts Compensation Lawyers has settled hundreds of claims on behalf of their clients. Below are a few testimonials from some of their many satisfied clients.
“My life has been one big blur the last month or so and I never expected the result we got. I just wanted to extend my great appreciation towards you. You have defiantly gone above and beyond and I am blessed to have found such a great solicitor like yourself. You have no idea how much this money will change my life and I can’t thank you enough.”
S.B. (Compensation Claim)
“I would like to drop you a quick note to say that I was really happy how Eunice guided me though my road accident claim which was completed last Monday. She appeared both friendly and professional – I could not have asked for more.”
M.P. (Motor Vehicle Accident Compensation)
“I was recommended to Mitchell at Wyatts Lawyers after my husband and I experienced a car accident, we were trying to deal with the insurance company ourselves for some time before we realised we needed professional help. After having had initial appointments with a number of other lawyers around Sydney and not feeling as if we could trust them, we met with Mitchell and we knew our experience would be a positive one from the start. Mitchell was honest with us, communicated with us, was very knowledgeable, was organised throughout the process and produced a result 20 times more than what the insurance company first offered me. We can’t recommend Wyatts highly enough and will be telling our friends to use them if they want a personal, organised, professional and stress free experience when claiming compensation.”
