Expertise

Linda Hanley is a Senior Associate at Adviceline Injury Lawyers and is an expert in personal injury law.

Her keen interest and desire to assist injured individuals initially began after her mother was injured in the workplace and struggled to navigate through the WorkCover system. Having seen and experienced the impact injuries have on the lives of injured individuals and their families, Linda is passionate about helping others navigate these complex compensation systems.

Linda’s extensive experience in assisting her injured clients in obtaining what is rightfully theirs by way of legal entitlements and compensation has made her the empathetic and compassionate lawyer she is today.

Fluent in English and Cantonese, and with a basic understanding of Mandarin, Linda can assist clients in their language. Linda is passionate about acting for community members who have difficulty accessing legal services due to cost or language barriers.

Outside of work, Linda enjoys spending most of her time with her family.  Along with her Psychologist husband, she enjoys exploring the meaning and purpose of life.  She especially delights in creating memories and teaching her two beautiful girls, whom she describes as her “pride and joy”.

Experience

Linda has been involved in numerous personal injury litigation settlements, including:

  • two six-figure settlements for an injured Chinese worker for two separate and discreet injuries against the same employer
  • a generous settlement for pain and suffering damages for a teacher who suffered an obscure jaw injury during the course of her employment
  • a settlement for a worker who was injured in 1991, recovering almost all of their weekly payments which were in arrears. The insurer had terminated their payments after determining that the worker’s injury/condition was no longer connected to their employment.
