Kate Dempster LL.B, B.Com (Hons), GDLP
Head of Personal Injuries and Workers Compensation Department
“Knowing that I am helping people in difficult situations is a constant source of motivation and purpose.”
Kate is the Director of the firm’s personal injury department.
Every personal injury matter is overseen by Kate and managed with the assistance of one other lawyer. Initial appointments are an opportunity to provide frank and practical advice and understand what it is that keeps her clients awake at night. It has always been important to Kate to establish a strong, positive relationship with clients from the outset in order to help them feel supported throughout the duration of their case.
Kate has worked exclusively in the area of personal injury law since 2006. She has successfully recovered compensation for people injured in motor vehicle accidents, public liability accidents and for relatives of people involved in fatal accidents, although her primary area of interest and expertise is in work accidents. Kate is committed to working with clients to obtain fair compensation in a timely and cost efficient manner. Much of her work is obtained on the recommendation of satisfied clients or through referrals from other members of the legal and medical professions who recognise her expertise.
In 2016 and 2017 Doyles Guide to the Australian Legal Profession listed Kate as a recommended lawyer in the areas of workers’ compensation and motor vehicle accident compensation.
In 2018 Doyles Guide to the Australian Legal profession listed Kate as a recommended lawyer in the areas of workers’ compensation, motor vehicle and public liability claims.
Kate is a member of the Law Society of Western Australia.
