Ryan Heath

Special Counsel

Ryan joined Sciaccas Lawyers in 1997 and has over 25 years of legal experience in accident compensation law.  Ryan has a special interest in psychological injuries and enjoys a long standing relationship with the Queensland Police Union of Employees. He is often called upon to advise police and other first responders on potential common law and total and permanent disability claims.  

Ryan has previously acted for major insurance companies including Allianz and Suncorp, as well as public liability insurers. He has also previously worked for WorkCover Queensland managing a team of in house lawyers.

“I have gained a tremendous appreciation and admiration for the work performed by Queensland police officers. They discharge their duties with strength, courage and dedication. It has been a privilege to assist these officers in navigating the increasingly complex areas of workplace injuries and the medical retirement process.”

Ryan was admitted to the Supreme Court of Queensland in 1991 and is a Solicitor of the High Court. He holds a Bachelor of Arts/Laws from the University of Queensland.

Ryan is available to present continuing legal education seminars on legislation updates and recent case rulings.
