David Bell is a personal injury Associate in Maurice Blackburn’s Sunshine Coast office.

David helps clients with work and road accident compensation claims and public liability issues. He also has a particular interest in bringing claims for the survivors of childhood sexual abuse. David is specially trained in trauma informed practice which ensures he works with clients to access justice in a way that recognises the complex trauma they have suffered.

David graduated from Bond University with Bachelor degrees in Law and International Relations. He then completed his legal education at Queensland University of Technology and was admitted to practice in 2011. Since joining the firm in 2010, David has gained extensive experience in pursuing claims for everyday Queenslanders. He was initially drawn to the law by a strong belief in social justice and the doctrine of a ‘fair go’.

“I have always been conscious of the suffering, vulnerability and harsh indifference a person might experience after a life-changing event,” says David.

“It is rewarding to empower my clients and achieve excellent outcomes to allow them to move forward with their lives.”

A deeply principled litigator, David is committed to the Sunshine Coast community. In his spare time, he plays football for the Maroochydore Roos and also volunteers at the Suncoast Community Legal Service.
