Have you been injured in a public or private place? If so, you may be able to lodge a public liability claim.

  • slip and fall accidents at shopping centres, retail and commercial locations

  • accidents at pubs, clubs and involving security guards

  • sporting and recreational incidents

  • claims involving defective goods and products

  • injuries sustained at schools and clubs

  • physical or sexual assaults

  • dog attacks

  • private residential properties

 

Our Principal has UNIQUE EXPERIENCE having worked in the insurance industry and understands the approach taken by large insurers in the management and settlement of claims. Our expert experience will ensure you receive the appropriate advice about your prospects of making a claim and more importantly the correct compensation.

We pride ourselves on our personal service and your claim will be handed by our Principal, and not a paralegal. You will be kept fully informed at all times as to the process of your claim.

The regime in Queensland that governs the right to bring a personal injury claim in a public liability setting is very complicated and procedural.  Also strict timetables apply in which to lodge and serve a claim against a party at fault. At the first instance a claim must be served within 9 months after the incident or 1 month after you have retained a lawyer to act for you, whichever is earliest.

It is important that the circumstances of your claim is reported as soon as possible after its occurrence and documented. Details of witnesses and photographs of the scene should be obtained soon after the incident. Immediate medical attention should also be sought and also the circumstances recorded by the treating practitioner.

The potential areas of compensation that can be sought include:

  • pain and suffering

  • out of pocket expenses such as medical, rehabilitation, pharmaceutical and travel

  • past and future income

  • past and future care

  • future treatment and other expenses
