Darren Adams

Darren has been specialising in personal injury law since 1998. His areas of expertise include Motor Vehicle Accidents, Workplace Injuries, Mining Injuries, Slips & Falls, Industrial Accidents and Fatal/Catastrophic Injuries.

He has conducted thousands of cases achieving the best possible outcomes for those who are injured.

Darren has also gained invaluable experience and insights into the Workers Compensation scheme in Qld. He understands how frustrating the system can be to navigate for injured workers and is able to communicate with WorkCover on your behalf to ensure your interests are always fully protected.

Darren has spent many years fighting insurance companies to get justice for injured persons focussed on plaintiff-only injury litigation for the injured person and has proven to be a formidable opponent for even the largest insurers and never backs down from a fight. His experience and straight forward advice (affectionately called the “No BS” approach) means you will know exactly where your claim stands from the outset.
