Dan Sutherland is Special Counsel at Your Claim Lawyers with over 14 years of experience in the legal industry.
Over his career Dan has specialised in personal injuries law on behalf of both injured individuals whilst working for top National and Global Law firms including being a State Leader for a Global Law firm.
In additional to specialising for almost his whole career in compensation claims on behalf of injured people, Dan has been a Principal Lawyer at WorkCover Queensland along with a Defence Lawyer for a Queensland CTP Insurer.
Working for insurers has equipped Dan with a unique understanding of the internal workings of insurers (along with their public and private sector clients) as well as their mechanisms of defence of personal injuries claims. Such insight frequently proves invaluable in representing the interests of his injured clients to extract maximum compensation for their claims when it comes time to negotiate a settlement.
Dan was drawn to join Your Claim Lawyers because of the opportunity to provide a personalised service to each and every one of his clients that is just not possible in the Big Firms, where clients are often treated as “just a number”.
“I recognise the importance of being a personal champion for every client. Injured people come to me in a time of great need and sometimes in their darkest hour. I feel privileged to be able to support them in trying circumstances and to help them get their life back on track. I have gained tremendous industry knowledge at big firms and insurers every bit of which I draw on to help maximise my clients’ compensation.
Your Claim Lawyers really care about their clients and work tirelessly to get them everything they deserve. I am proud to be on the Your Claim Lawyers team as they really are on your side.”
