Key Questions to Ask Johnston Withers Lawyers about Public Liability Lawyers in Adelaide

  • What can I claim for? If you’ve suffered an injury due to somebody else’s negligence in a public place, you can claim compensation for pain and suffering, loss of earnings, medical expenses and legal fees. Our lawyers will fight to secure the best outcome for you, ensuring you maximise your entitlement to financial compensation.
  • How long does it take to claim compensation? It’s possible to resolve most public liability claims within 12 to 18 months of sustaining the injury without the need to go to Court. However, you must file your claim within three years from the date you sustained your injury, and you should be aware that many factors, such as the length of your treatment and time it takes to investigate the accident, can prolong the legal process.
  • How do I claim? First, you need to notify the person or business you believe to be responsible for your injuries. We strongly recommend attending a doctor to assess your injuries as soon as possible following your injury. Ultimately, the best way to make a claim is to work with a public liability lawyer.
