Longevity, peace, and prosperity – it’s our mission too. Happy Lunar New Year!

From the 22nd of January this year, with celebrations continuing for 2 weeks, this year’s Chinese zodiac animal is the Rabbit. Traditionally, it represents longevity, peace, and prosperity. As the Year of the Tiger comes to an end, and the Year of the Rabbit begins, we can expect a welcome change of pace as we say goodbye to the roaring tiger and hello to the milder rabbit. Both anatomically and behaviorally, tigers and rabbits could hardly be more different. The same is true for their corresponding zodiac years, according to astrologists.

The rabbit is historically known as the gentlest and most tender of the 12 animals in the Chinese zodiac, the traditional classification scheme based on the lunar calendar that assigns an animal and its attributes to each year. If 2022 was a year of stress and changes in family and business for you – allow Phoenix Law & Associates to guide you to resolve troubling issues ad settle matters. Phoenix Law speaks your language, and we know Queensland law.

Discover how easy it can be to resolve issues with positive results, which in turn will increase peace, and prosperity, and boost mental and physical health in 2023.

Making a Will is one of the most important things you can do for yourself and your family, but just as important is the conversation you have with a solicitor before you make a will. By making a Will or an Enduring Power of Attorney (if you lose the capacity to make decisions) you can put plans in place to create a better future for your loved ones if something happens to you.


  1. Make a will
  2. Make your enduring power of attorney
    An Enduring Power of Attorney is a legal document that allows you to appoint someone you trust to make decisions on your behalf if you become seriously ill or have an accident and lose capacity.

Your Financial Attorney is responsible for:
• Paying bills such as your rent, electricity, pet food, medical and vet expenses
• Managing your investments
• Preparing your tax returns.

Your attorney for personal and health matters is responsible for:
• Where you live and who will care for you
• Certain medical decisions, treatment options, and medicines.

  1. Have conversations with those you trust
    Once you’ve made your Will and Enduring Power of Attorney, it’s a good idea to have a conversation with those you trust, so they can support your wishes in the future.
    Your wishes may include:
    • Who will care for your pets
    • Where you will be cared for – in your home or in a care facility
    • Funeral arrangements – including if you want to be buried or cremated
    • Who is to be your Executor and your Attorney.

You want to make sure your Will is valid and that it is properly drawn up. This can be done through professionals. A solicitor will let you know about your rights and obligations and make sure that you have expressed your wishes in the best possible. Make your WILL with professionals.

한걸음 나아간 인생 계획

코비드 팬더믹은 현대 우리 생활 그리고 반려동물에 새로운 일상을 가져다 주었습니다.

Aussie Pet Doors 에 따르면, 코로나 팬더믹이 시작된 이후, 200만명 이상의 호주인들이 반려동물을 갖게되었다고 나타났습니다. 최근 Animal Medicines Australia에 의해 시행된 설문조사에 따르면, 호주 전체 70% 인구가 반려동물을 소유하고, 그중 50%가 강아지를 반려동물로 소유하고있다고 나타났습니다.

하지만, 사람들은 본인이 사망했을 경우에 반려동물이 어떻게 될지에 대해서는 소홀히하고 있습니다.

최근, Elizabeth 여왕 서거하셨고, 여왕의 2마리 강아지가 남겨졌습니다. 언론의 보도에 따르면, Andrew 공작과 그의 전부인이 이 두마리의 강아지를 돌볼것으로 예측된다고 합니다. 이 부부가 여왕에게 이 두마리의 강아지를 선물하였고, 이 강아지들은 England Winsor 성에서 이혼한 이 부부와 함께 살게될 것입니다.

이 경우는 남겨진 가족이 여왕의 반려동물을 돌보겠다고 나선 아주 바람직한 선례로 볼 수 있습니다. 하지만 이와는 반대로, 가족들이 남겨진 반려동물을 원하지 않을 경우도 있을것입니다. 이런일은 만약 여러분 신변에 문제가 생길경우, 여러분의 반려동물에게도 일어날 수 있습니다.

본인에게 어떤일이 일어나서 더이상 반려동물을 돌보지 못할 경우, 그동물이 지속적으로 사랑받을 수 있도록 해야합니다.

유언장을 작성하는것은 여러분 본인과 가족을 위해 해야할 아주 중요한 일 중 한가지 입니다. 유언장을 작성하기전, 변호사와 상담하는것도 이에 못지않게 중요합니다.

유언장을 작성하거나 지속적 위임장(Enduring Power of Attorney)을 작성하므로써, 여러분의 신변에 문제가 생겼을 경우, 반려동물에게 더 나운 환경을 만들수있는 계획을 세울수 있습니다.

어떻게 나의 바램들을 알릴수 있을까요?

  1. 유언장 작성

지속적인 위임장 작성(Enduring Power of Attorney. EPA)

EPA 는 여러분이 병이들게 되거나 사고로 결정을 내릴 수 없을 경우, 여러분을 대신하여 결정을 내려줄수 있을만한 신뢰하는사람을 지정할 수 있도록 하는 법적 문서입니다.

경제적 대변인은 아래와 같은 책임이 있습니다.

  • 전기,렌트, 반려동물 음식, 동물병원 비용 지불
    • 여러분의 투자 관리
    • 세금정산 관리

개인적 건강관련 대변인은 아래와 같은 책임이 있습니다.

  • 여러분이 살곳과 여러분을 돌볼사람
  • 의학적 결정과, 치료 선택, 의약품
  • 여러분이 신뢰하는 사람들과 대화하십시오.

유언장이나 EPA 를 작성하셨으면, 여러분이 신뢰하는 분들과 이와 관련하여 대화를 나누어, 그분들이 미래에 여러분이 바라는것들이 이루어지도록 도와줄 수 있을것입니다.

여러분의 바람은 다음과 같은것들이 포함될 수 있습니다.

  • 누가 반려동물을 돌볼것인지
  • 여러분을 돌봐줄 곳이 어디인지 – 집 혹은 시설
  • 장례식 준비 – 묘를 만들지 아니면 화장할지 여부
  • 유언장을 집행해 줄 사람과 대변인

    여러분은 유언장이 정확하고 유효하게 작성되길 바라실겁니다. 이러한 유언장 작성은  

    전문가를 통해 이뤄질수 있습니다. 변호사가 여러분의 권한과 의무에 대해 알려드리고,

    여러분이 원하는것에대해 정확하게 표현되도록 도와드릴 것입니다. 따라서 이러한

    유언장은 전문 변호사를 통해 작성하시는 것이 중요합니다.

Young delivery cyclists 13 times more likely to be injured

Since Covid lockdowns began, we’ve seen a huge increase in delivery riders for companies like Uber Eats and Doordash. It’s a challenging job, tight deadlines, hard-work, usually poorly-paid, and presents real danger from traffic and abuse. A new report has found delivery cyclists are thirteen times more likely than recreational cyclists to present to an emergency department between 8pm and midnight, yet the injuries largely go unreported.

Commercial delivery riders are often injured on the job during the busy evening delivery period, and whilst they sub-contract to huge multinationals, they are often not covered by Medicare. Under Australian labour laws, being an independent contractor means not being entitled to minimum wage, sick leave and annual leave. Delivery cyclists are most likely to be young males, eleven times more likely to have a primary language that is not English. At least five food delivery riders in NSW, all from migrant backgrounds, were killed in two months in late 2020 in road accidents while on the job.

Why injures may not be reported

FEAR. One of the most common reasons people don’t speak up when a workplace incident occurs is because they are afraid – their fear is of the unknown. Employees don’t know what the repercussions will be if they report the incident, and they worry that this action might bring some kind of punishment.

POWERLESSNESS. Add a sense of powerlessness as young employees report that they feel they have less influence in the workplace because of their age and inexperience which keeps them from telling their supervisor about safety concerns or injuries. They also report feeling they do not have a voice that can help change something in the workplace. In the context of workplace safety, that could mean making recommendations, sharing ideas with any supervisor, refusing to perform dangerous work or even the empowerment of calling a safety representative to report a concern or incident.

“DON’T MAKE ANY NOISE “  Interestingly,  employees with more seniority in the same job, have an approach of not reporting injuries because they understand that is a normal part of getting the job done. Many employees have different definitions for injuries and do not report those that they understand are “small” and do not think they can anything to do to prevent them. Not understanding when an injury is work-related and accepting discomfort and even pain as part of the job. They fear that “making noise” will limit them to keep their current job or aspire for growth in the organization

 Appointing a Lawyer can make a fairer difference

 38% of respondents who had been involved in an incident, did not report it because they felt they may be met with anger or that nothing would be done as a result. Australians typically are reluctant to sue, but when you have suffered losses due to the actions of someone else, it’s important to know what you’re entitled to in terms of compensation. If you’re not sure what to do in this upsetting time, the Brisbane personal injury lawyers at Phoenix Law – compassionate experienced Injury Lawyers,  are here to help.

You will more than likely need help with medical expenses, loss of earnings, physical and psychological suffering, or loss of enjoyment of life. CALL 1800-GET-HELP or see https://www.phoenix-law.com.au/ +61 (07) 3180 0908 #workinjury #qldlaw #workerscompensation #injury

Worker compensated for hand sanitiser throat injury at Adelaide School.

Hand sanitiser has become prolific since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. For a school support worker, at Hallet Cove School in Adelaide, it has contributed to a throat injury. On April 28, 2020, and again a week later, Tracey Reimers breathed in fumes from hand sanitiser that had been introduced to the school. Feeling like she had something stuck in the back of her throat, and always needed to cough, the laryngeal sensitivity — was relieved by a Botox injection to her throat in August 2020. The condition was aggravated after Ms Reimers breathed in mist from a fan a girl had brought into a classroom in February 2021 and found it worse when working with older students, who used more deodorant, perfume and aftershave.

The South Australian Employment Tribunal ruled that the woman should be reinstated with the Department for Education, and will be paid for work loss and medical expenses. The Brisbane personal injury lawyers at Phoenix Law   are here to help you with personal injury compensation.

You may need help with medical expenses, loss of earnings, physical and psychological suffering, or loss of enjoyment of life. CALL 1800-GET-HELP or see https://www.phoenix-law.com.au/ +61 (07) 3180 0908 #workinjury #handsanitiser #qldlaw #workerscompensation #injury

A Sydney bus driver has been awarded compensation after an altercation with a train station attendant who refused to let him use the toilet, leaving him “extremely stressed and upset” in May 2021 in Campbelltown.

He arrived at Macarthur Station in the early hours of the morning needing “to do one and two”, but found the toilets locked as the train station attendant would not unlock the toilet doors, saying he had not had a chance to clean them.

After pleading several times, the driver turned away, and the attendant “pushed him on his back”. The attendant eventually unlocked the toilet, and the driver later completed an injury report form, describing it as “assault”.

He told the commission the incident and subsequent disciplinary meetings at work had exacerbated his anxiety and depression. The driver lodged a claim with Transdev’s worker’s compensation insurer GIO for medical expenses, being $900 for consultations with a psychologist and $3240 for future appointments, also with a psychologist.

GIO disputed the claim. The matter was heard before the commission, which this month ruled in the driver’s favour. “I am satisfied that the applicant sustained a psychological injury on May 2, 2021,” senior member Kerry Haddock said. “That injury was an aggravation of a disease, to which his employment was the main contributing factor.” She noted the driver’s supervisor described him as an “excellent worker”. “I accept that the treatment proposed is appropriate,” she said
This story will resonate with any Australians working long hours away from the home.
