No Win No Fee on all compensation claims

Public Liability Lawyers Sydney

What makes me eligible to claim public liability compensation?

When we are out in public places we all have the expectation that reasonable care will be taken to protect us from injury. Public liability law exists to ensure reasonable steps are taken to prevent these injuries from happening and help those who have sustained injuries.

In order to claim compensation for such injuries you will have to prove that the duty of care owed to you was breached by the organisation, person or company responsible for the public place, commercial, retail or private property where they occurred.

Common Public Liability Claims

  • A slip-and–fall accident in a local park, grocery store, event space or rental premises
  • An injury caused by animal attacks
  • Injuries in a private building (e.g. supermarkets, shopping centre, bar entertainment venues/night club, concert venues)
  • Amusement venue injuries
  • Defective products
  • Recreational activities and sporting injuries
  • Injuries in rental properties sustained due to unsafe premises
  • Fitness injuries, including personal training

Frequently asked questions

Who can claim public liability compensation?

Anybody who is injured in a public or private place and was not responsible for the injuries sustained, might be entitled to compensation. This of course will be contingent on the circumstances of their injuries and where they occurred

.

Slip and fall injuries

When it comes to slip and fall compensation claims, a lack of reasonable care or breached duty of care must be established. Examples of these include wet floors at a supermarket or a damaged public footpath. In order to establish this you will need to gather evidence to support your case.

Why do I need a lawyer?

Our experienced public liability lawyers will investigate your case on your behalf at no obligation to you and on a “No Win No Fee” basis. They will lead you through the legal process and work to ensure you receive the best outcome possible.

What can I claim compensation for?

Your compensation entitlements are dependent on the circumstances of your claim.

You could be entitled to compensation for:

  • Financial loss
  • Medical expenses
  • Rehabilitation expenses
  • Pain and suffering
  • Non-economic loss such as care from friends or family
  • Future medical expenses and lost wages

Is there a time limit?

Generally, a public liability claim must be conducted within three years of the injuries occurring. This why it is important to get legal advice in a timely manner.

If you miss this time limit

You are still able to make a public liability compensation claim. But when the claim is filed you will need to give the insurance company a satisfactory reason why you missed the time limit. Our lawyers can help do this.

Once you have hired a lawyer to manage your public liability claim is that your lawyer is responsible for making sure that everything is filed correctly and on time.

Commencement of Court Proceedings

If your claim does proceed to court you must have initiated the claim process within the three year period after sustaining your injuries or accident. If you do not commence within this time period your right to bring about a claim will most likely be forfeit. This is why we recommend you seek legal advice as promptly as possible.

Will I have to go to court?

The majority of public liability insurance claims do not proceed to court, they are able to be settled prior to trial. In the unlikely event that your case did proceed to court, our lawyers have plenty of experience with this.
