Meghan Sheehan is an experienced workplace injury Associate in Maurice Blackburn’s Sunshine office. She helps people in the Western suburbs with WorkCover compensation claims.

Meghan joined Maurice Blackburn as a trainee lawyer in 2015. She was admitted to practice law in 2016, holds a Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Law from La Trobe University. Meghan also worked as a paralegal for five years while studying.

“I have a passion for unionism and a belief that no one should suffer an injury at work. I want to make life easier for injured people so they can lead independent and fulfilling lives,” says Meghan.

“Work injuries affect not only people’s ability to earn a living, but injuries can severely limit someone’s capacity to enjoy life and do what they love outside work.”

Driven by a strong sense of justice, Meghan uses every opportunity to highlight preventable workplace injury and raise awareness of dangerous work practices.

She is also a volunteer at the legal clinic for the African Australian Multicultural Employment and Youth Services, and has volunteered at the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre.
