You may be eligible to claim public liability compensation if you’ve been injured because of the negligence of someone else. Your public liability claims will vary greatly depending on your personal circumstances and the nature of your injuries.
Here are some examples of public liability claims and the common types of accidents that you may be able to make public liability compensation claims for:
Slips and falls in supermarkets, shopping centres and other retail outlets
Injuries on private property, including rental properties
Injuries caused by animals
Boat and water-sport accidents
Playground and school yard accidents
Generally speaking, your public liability compensation claim will cover things like:
Medical costs (including past and future costs)
Lost income (including past and future)
Pain, suffering and loss of enjoyment of life
Home help and attendant care (including expenses such as domestic care and commercial assistance up until the time of settlement and into the future)
If you’d like tailored advice about the amount you might receive under public liability claims, get in touch with our team of regionally-based and Adelaide public liability lawyers.
Any organisation or institution who has caused or contributed to your accident or injury may be found legally liable and required to pay you compensation. They might even be liable for the actions of others if the location of your accident is under their control.
Businesses and other (non-domestic) occupiers of premises are usually required to carry public liability insurance, so compensation is actually paid by their insurance company. A person’s own home and contents insurance can cover public liability accidents that occur at a private residence.
Public liability claims will usually take 12 to 18 months to resolve from the date of the injuries; this depends on how long it takes for the injuries to fully heal and when they are considered medically stable to be assessed for permanent impairments.
Claims can take longer for injuries that take an extended period of time to stabilise, or matters that might be contested through the Court by public liability lawyers. No matter how long the claim takes, we won’t not charge you any legal fees until your claim resolves.
