Accredited Specialist, Personal Injury

NSW Law Society - Accredited Specialist - Personal Injury

Sydney Compensation Specialists is directed and run by Kim Breda. Kim has practised in Plaintiff personal injury litigation for more than 15 years, and is an Accredited Specialist in Personal Injury Law as awarded by the NSW Law Society.

Kim spent 15 years as a lawyer in mid to large law firms, always in Plaintiff litigation representing injured people. Kim had the realisation that she could provide top quality legal representation and advice to clients, but without the complications (and large fees) of a large law firm. Kim’s vision is to provide quality legal services on a personal level, with personal and caring style. Kim is dedicated to her clients and always available with a sympathetic ear.

Kim has vast experience in all facets of personal injury litigation including:

  • Motor Accidents Claims
  • Liability claims including product liability, occupiers liability, public liability and general negligence claims
  • Medical Negligence claims
  • Compensation to Relatives claims
  • Work Injury Damages claims
  • Professional Negligence
  • TPD claims
  • Civil claims arising from institutional abuse

Kim has gained experience in the last few years particularly in civil claims arising from institutional abuse. This practice area has grown significantly in recent times due to the Royal Commission into Institutional abuse and  Kim has acted for survivors of abuse in claims against the Catholic Church, Department of Education, Department of Families and Communities (DOCS), day care centres and various other institutions.

Kim has also been accepted as a panel lawyer for the Knowmore organisation. Knowmore was established by, and operates as a separate program of the National Association of Community Legal Centres. It was established in order to assist people navigating and providing information to the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse. http://knowmore.org.au/
