“Nothing makes me happier than to see clients appreciate the amount of work that has been completed on their matter. I work really hard in helping everyday Australians with all their workers compensation enquiries and assisting them to the best of my ability. With the new workers comp laws in NSW it is now more vital than ever before to make sure we get medical reports for all the injuries a client has as this will effect their overall compensation.”
The introduction of new laws to workers’ compensation in New South Wales has surprised many injured workers. It is especially difficult for injured workers who have been effected by the new laws to come to terms with them. By staying on top of the new processes introduced by WIRO and working closely with the new government department we have completed and gained great results in Workers’ Compensation claims. Along with my team and the PKS firm, we have come to work very closely with WIRO (Workers’ Compensation Independent Review Office) to make sure the correct forms and procedures are followed, ensuring our clients the best possible outcome.
At the end of the day, when I see our clients, who are injured and haven’t been able to work and have been somewhat depressed, leave my office with a big smile, this is what makes my hard work ever more rewarding.
Ellen is experienced in handling all compensation and injury questions from motor accident injury claims, work injury claims and medical negligence claims. A key element of settling all claims is to have rock solid evidence in the form of medical reports. This ensures the upper hand at the negotiating table and makes our clients feel very comfortable knowing that they have done everything in their power to make their claim a success. Insurers will also demand clients see a doctor selected by them. Clients may find it difficult to see multiple specialists for the same injury and often question the procedure. In the end everything we do is in our clients’ best interest. team will always advise you on the best strategy and every step taken has the end result in mind.

Australy Milo – TPD Claims
“I’ve got a passion for processes. I work methodically always with the client’s goal in mind. Here at PK Simpson I fit in like a glove. Clients appreciate the professionalism and speed at which we reach settlements, I know that for sure.”
Australy obtained her law degree from the University of Technology Sydney.
Australy practices in Total and Permanent Disability (TPD) and Contesting Wills (Family Provisions). With a highly capable and experienced team behind her, Australy strives to be the best in her field in the whole of Australia. Having learnt from the best TPD barristers, Australy, now a highly experienced TPD solicitor, finds her self helping injured workers from as far as Tasmania and Western Australia. With all the big superfunds and insurers based in Sydney Australy has the added advantage of being on their ‘door step’ to make sure her clients obtain the maximum benefit, if not the full benefit they are entitled to.
This area of personal injury, superannuation insurance, is unique in that the laws are governed nationally. This means all Australians who cannot work due to an injury or illness, and are covered by their superfund, can reach the expertise offered by our law firm and by our talented lawyers. Having a system which is primarily based online allows clients, even those based in rural Australia or more isolated parts, the support they need to make TPD claims.
For most, applying for a TPD claim and actually claiming superannuation TPD benefit is not straightforward. Superfunds and insurers often play ‘hard ball’ and will either refuse to acknowledge their members fall under the definition of TPD within their contract or may even offer a much lower payout than what we would expect if our superannuation lawyers were to settle the claim.
Australy is also the lead solicitor in contesting wills. If you beleive you have been unfairly treated in a will or left out of a will contact us immediately.
Australy’s good natured and thorough approach to sensitive and emotionally charged cases has proved wonders for many clients. Australy is fluent in Tagalog (Philippines).
If you require more information on superannuation claims or how to claim superannuation contact us and talk to Australy today. If you have any questions regarding a will dispute or any wills and estates issues, Australy Milo can help. Contact her today.

Colin has had over 20 years experience as a compensation lawyer in NSW and has dedicated his life to helping others with his legal expertise in claiming compensation. When first meeting Colin clients often feel as though a weight has been lifted from their shoulders as he explains the compensation claims process and how to claim compensation and the many avenues which may be available to the individual when considering where and how the accident and/or injury occurred.
There are a variety of personal injury compensation claims available to injured workers and individuals in NSW. Some are well known, like car accident claims and work injury claims, whilst others, like superannuation claims involving TPD benefits are totally unknown to most.
Colin explains that claiming for compensation is a process in which the compensation lawyer, on behalf of the client, liaises with the insurer in filling out and completing forms and making sure the correct evidence is supplied so as to obtain a favourable lump sum payout for the client. Further more clients realise that not all compensation lawyers are the same and provide a holistic service such as PK Simpson Compensation Lawyers.
Colin has spoken to many injured people who have attempted to claim compensation with other lawyers before coming to see him. Within days these new clients can review their claims and see remarkable progress.

“Personal injury claims can be stressful and overwhelming, especially when dealing with large resourceful insurance companies who will do everything within their power to avoid paying you the compensation you are entitled to.
