Jane Bowes is a Senior Associate and Regional Office Leader at Maurice Blackburn’s Rockhampton office. With over 10 years’ experience specialising in plaintiff personal injuries litigation, Jane prides herself on being a strong advocate for those who have suffered harm through no fault of their own, who are left in a vulnerable position as they try to navigate a complex legal system.
“The law should be accessible to everyone, not just those that can afford it. My role is humbling and deeply rewarding as it allows me to use the law to facilitate justice for people from all walks of life. Those who are injured often find themselves fighting a David and Goliath battle against insurance corporations with deep pockets who rely on cruel tactics to delay, deny and defend genuine claims. Every day I fight for my client’s rights to ensure those who are negligent are held accountable for their wrongdoings and the harm they have caused."
Jane is a Rocky local who specialises in WorkCover claims (physical and psychological), bullying claims, mining injuries and deaths, motor vehicle claims, public liability claims and dependency claims for those whose loved ones have been killed. Jane also travels to Gladstone regularly to visit clients in the area. She has appeared for both Plaintiffs and insurers in personal injury trials and coronial inquests in Queensland’s District and Supreme courts.
