We are delighted to welcome Danijela Dogic to the ACL Australia legal team. Dani is a trailblazing personal injury lawyer specialising in workers’ compensation cases.
“I’m thrilled to join ACL,” she shares. “I’m in my first week right now, so my main focus has been familiarising myself with the company’s digital tools and case management system, but I” m looking forward to getting back to client-based work.”
Given her fantastic expertise and knowledge, we are sure Dani will be up and running in no time. After all, she joins us with a wealth of experience working on both sides of the fence for workers’ compensation cases, firstly for insurers and then for plaintiffs.
For our clients, this gives Dani an extra edge – a firsthand understanding of how defendants handle workers’ compensation claims.
“I worked as a consultant for an insurance company, which was a great learning experience, but a passion for social justice has always driven me,” she explains. “I became a lawyer to help people and realised the plaintiff side was the right place for me.”
After her time at the insurer, Dani honed her personal injury expertise at a boutique law firm, where she worked on a range of cases relating to workers’ compensation, motor vehicle accidents (MVA), income protection and total permanent disablement (TPD) claims.
Following this, she specialised in workers’ compensation claims at a well-regarded national law firm before joining ACL.
“With personal injury claims, you’re often helping people when they are most vulnerable,” she shares. “Plus, the workers’ compensation scheme is inherently complex. Many people don’t know their entitlements under the law, meaning they can be taken advantage of or lose out on vital compensation.”
With her empathetic nature and deep understanding of Western Australian law, Dani is fueled by a passion for helping people get the compensation they rightly deserve.
“When someone is mistreated or injured in the workplace, I see it as my role to stand in their corner, guide them through each step of the compensation process and obtain the best possible outcome,” she notes. “I aim to help people achieve justice and rebuild their lives, and I’m proud to say I have a high success rate.”
In her career thus far, Dani has helped clients attain millions of dollars in rightfully owed compensation. At ACL, she will continue in this vein, focusing on the rights of injured people.
Commenting on Dani’s appointment, our commercial director, Simon Shaw, shares: “Dani is an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer with an exceptional track record of upholding injured workers’ rights. As demand for our legal expertise soars, we need experienced lawyers like Dani to best serve our clients. We’re really pleased to have her onboard.”
We want to give Dani a warm welcome to ACL Australia. Your expertise will significantly benefit our clients, and we’re thrilled to have you with us!
