PATRICK’S STORY

Former West Coast Eagle secures $500,000 payout after suffering career-ending neck injury

Ex-Eagle Patrick Bines’ brutal injury saw him drop 40kg and use an injecting room. He was left in “excruciating pain” and ready to end his life years after an innocuous on-field spoil cost him everything

Earlier this year, journalist Jon Ralph spoke about his story on Fox Footy’s On The Couch when insurance and claims expert Adriana Oreskov was watching. This one moment saved him and changed his life.

On her own accord, Ms Oreskov reached out to Bines on LinkedIn. She was able to successfully re-activate his claim on 11 May 2022 and exactly 60 days later on 11 July 2022, Bines had his total and permanent disability with AMP approved, after two unsuccessful attempts. He was finally able to have closure so that he can focus on healing and getting his life back on track.

I met Adriana a few months back when I was referred by a former teammate. Since meeting Adriana, I have been genuinely blown away by the work ethic and passion she has. There is a genuine want to help that I have never seen so clearly before. The term ‘live by your values’ doesn’t speak truer to anybody but Adriana, the care and empathy she holds towards her clients are second to none.

The integrity Adriana holds is also something that stands out. Not only that, Adriana gives you time when you need it, and explains things if something doesn’t quiet make sense. I never truly believed in ‘things happen for a reason’, but meeting and getting to know Adriana has restored my faith and things actually do happen for a reason. One of the most genuine, passionate and helpful people that. I have ever met.
