Public Liability Claims

If you have been injured because someone else didn’t take the right amount of care, you may be entitled to make a public liability claim for compensation to cover the cost of medical expenses, rehabilitation or even loss of earnings.

Every state and territory in Australia has its own laws that govern your right to claim for public liability or personal injury compensation so you will need to speak to an experienced solicitor as soon as possible after the injury takes place to find out whether you are eligible to make a claim.  Most importantly, in order to make a claim, you must be able to prove that the accident was caused by the negligence of another person, an organisation or a company.

A claim can cover physical and psychological injuries, caused in either a public or private place, and may include injuries caused by slips and falls, defective products, dog bites, unsafe business premises, accidents at sporting venues or amusement parks, school and playground injuries or aviation accidents.
