Omar Sarac is a Personal Injuries lawyer at Maurice Blackburn’s Browns Plains office. He was drawn to this area of law because he is passionate about using the law to make a difference to people’s lives. He speaks fluent Bosnian, Serbian and Croatian.
“I know that for most clients, making a compensation claim can seem like a very daunting and overwhelming thing, especially when they are trying to rebuild their lives following an injury. I am a firm believer that it is the lawyer’s job to take the stress out of this process as much as they can. An important aspect of this is making sure that a client fully understands the process and direction their matter is heading.”
Omar gets satisfaction from holding organisations and people accountable when easy steps could have been taken to avoid the risk of injury. This is particularly true in circumstances where there are significant power imbalances between the parties, often a large company against an individual.
