Nicole Forbes is a personal injuries Associate at Maurice Blackburn's Ipswich office. She is passionate about helping those who have been injured through what can be the most difficult period of their lives. 

"I endeavour to make the overwhelming process of making a claim as simple and straight forward as possible for my clients."

The belief that everyone should have an equal right to justice is what led Nicole to the area of plaintiff personal injuries law. Nicole finds great pride in knowing that the outcome she achieves for her clients can help them to piece their lives back together. This was especially the case for the client she represented in Thomson v State of Queensland [2019] QSC 95. Mr Thompson contracted Q Fever in the course of his employment with the Queensland Police-Citizens Youth Welfare Association while contracted to work at the Southport State High School. Through no fault of his own he had sustained a debilitating illness that severely impacted all aspects of his life. The outcome Nicole helped to achieve for this client was exceptional and enabled him to start rebuilding his life.
