I am an injured ex police officer who was fortunate enough to be introduced to john cox in 2008 at a time when the ‘system’had me wrapped up in circles. At this same time, shortly around the time of my medical discharge, the NSW Police Association had basically told me they could do nothing for me as I was not pre 88.
Immediately after meeting john, my outlook on life changed. After our first meeting, john gave me direction and a clear understanding of what I was facing into the future. He understood my injuries and could relate and empathise with what I was going through. He showed compassion unseen to me before.
Its now 2016 and I have been through a TPD Claim with Metlife, a S66/67 claim and an extremely complex work injury damages claim. I was successful in all of these claims. Thanks to John. Mixed in to this litigation I had an ongoing fight with my workers compensation insurer who tried to cut my weekly benefits. Eight years of hell and the only thing that got me through it was have John in my corner fighting hard every step of the way to protect my rights. John’s understanding of not only the law, but his strategic implementation of the law, is something I have never seen before.
At times I was so stressed and irrational I would email or phone john quite upset. John made himself available to me at every opportunity he was able and without judment would talk me through not only my legal concerns, but had a very positive impact on the well being of my family life. Plain and simple, John, you saved my life and are respinsible for getting me through to the other side. You are a great man and probably the only voice I found that truly believes in fighting for the rights of not only police, but injustice in general.
Thank you John. You personally have changed my life and I cannot thank you enough.
Dear John and Nadia
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! No words will ever be enough to say thank you for all your hard work and help over the last few years.
We appreciate your friendship and would like to say thanks with this gift.
John Cox & Team,
When I first meet John Cox my life was in free fall, I had been diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder a couple of years prior, I had seen everything I had worked hard for diminish due to my inability to work in an industry I was trained and skilled, I had little control over a number of insurance matters and to be frank, the future looked grim. John Cox with the support of Nadia Rahman, turned this around within a matter of months (not years), taking full control of the process and delivering on his initial consultation, which was that, under my policies , I was entitled to a TPD declaration and a lump sum payout. This had been previously declined with my long time insurer before after my own self attempts to make a claim.
John’s knowledge, nature, and consistent guidance throughout the process changed not only my life, but my families forever. It has allowed us to worry about my ongoing recovery and wellbeing, by providing my family with the financial security and stability that is required when you are dealing with such life changing events.
I can’t thank John & Nadia enough for their ongoing help and friendship, and cannot recommend their services highly enough to anyone that may have given up on hope, as we had.
After a long and distinguished career in the New South Wales Police Force I unexpectedly found myself overwhelmed by my experiences, memories of significant human suffering and tragedy.
I was diagnosed with Chronic Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Comorbid Major Depression complicated by alcohol and prescription medication abuse.
Shortly after being medically discharged, I made an application for compensation under Section 66/67 of the New South Wales Workers Compensation Act and the New South Wales Police’s Death and Disability Scheme in the form of a Police Blue Ribbon Insurance (PBRI) policy.
Suffering the symptoms of PTSD I was unable to manage the large volume of forms and legal documents required by Insurance Companies for investigation. At times, I was taken advantage by my lack of knowledge of compensation law and procedure. I was subjected to unethical practices by Case Managers of the Global corporations they represent.
I soon realised that I needed to engage a Specialist Accredited Lawyer with extensive experience in compensation law. I met with Mr John Cox who provided me with advice that was easy to understand along with the processes in retaining a Law Firm.
For several years, Mr Cox has always had my best interests at heart. As well as being a leading Specialist Accredited Lawyer, Mr Cox has always treated me with compassion and shown concern for my welfare. His tenacity in pursuing global insurance companies who attempt to mitigate liability against the insured worker is nothing more than remarkable. Without Mr Cox, I would not have received proper and just compensation.
John and I have established a lifelong friendship. I will be forever in his debt will.
MetLife refutes inflammatory surveillance assertions
Sydney, 15.1.2015: In response to draft article shared on 13.1.2015, many of the allegations by Mr Cox are inflammatory and incorrect. To the extent the assertions he makes relate to MetLife, we reject any suggestion that we would be knowingly engaged in illegal or unethical practices.
MetLife always seeks to pay legitimate claims quickly and fairly. It is important to note that unmeritorious claims result in the passing on of premium increases, which is unfair for other members and unsustainable in the long run. MetLife uses surveillance selectively and sparingly and only where it has concerns about the legitimacy of a claim. When doing so we conform to recognised industry standards, ensuring privacy
is respected and that the surveillance is relevant, targeted and discreet.
If you have worked the front line in any triple zero service there is a good chance you may suffer from a physical or psychological injury. In my case I have physical injuries and needed assistance in making a TPD claim.
I found John Cox and Nadia Rahman to be extremely knowledgeable and competent with the legislation, including WorkCover. The extensive experience and understanding they have, produced positive results.
John and Nadia have a great passion for protecting the broken protectors. I describe them as people with integrity, strength and a strong commitment to get results.
Thank you John and Nadia for giving me peace of mind, I haven’t looked back.
Hi Nadia, I just wanted to say a massive thank you for everything you did for my matter. I’m so grateful to you and John Cox and so relieved it’s all done. So again thank you.
B.M, ex police officer
I am a first responder living in an Australian state.
If it weren’t for John Cox, I would not have a job. His sharp intelligence and extensive experience, in this specialised field of law, assured a safe passage through the most uncertain time of my career.
