Ursula McBride is a Senior Associate at Adviceline Injury Lawyers and is an expert in Victorian and Commonwealth work-related injury claims. She also has significant experience in claims for public place injuries.
Assisting injured workers became a passion for Ursula when she recognised that employers were not proactively improving working conditions to prevent injuries to workers. She has also identified that growing community awareness around mental illness has resulted in a significant increase to workers reporting psychological injuries as a result of workplace bullying and harassment.
Ursula is passionate about providing injured clients with clear and practical guidance about their compensation entitlements.
Ursula is a member of the Australian Lawyers Alliance and has been a long-standing Representative on their Victorian committee. Her role on the committee has included actively lobbying the government to amend injury legislation to improve outcomes for all injured Victorians.
Prior to joining Adviceline Injury Lawyers, Ursula worked for a specialised personal injury firm, where she assisted clients injured in work, motor vehicle and public liability accidents. She also helped injured claimants with superannuation lump sum and income protection benefit claims.
Ursula has extensive experience running personal injury litigation and has been involved in numerous settlements, including:
