Public Liability Claims

If you have been injured in a public place around Brisbane or Logan, then you may be entitled to make a public liability claim to compensate you for your personal injury.

Your personal injury compensation may include:

  • Past and future economic loss
  • Past and future medical expenses
  • Pain and suffering, and;
  • Gratuitous and paid care.

If you do intend to bring forward a public liability claim, then you need to speak to our experienced public liability lawyers as soon as possible as limitation periods do apply. We can provide you with expert advice on whether or not this is a claim that is worth pursuing and what your legal avenues are.

When making a public liability claim, it is important that you are able to prove on the balance of probabilities that the public liability policyholder was liable due to a breach of duty. If the accident was caused by a foreseeable risk and that risk was not insignificant, then the chances are you would have a potential public liability claim to compensate you for your injuries.

Further to these two factors in determining your right to claim compensation due to the injuries you have sustained, it also needs to be determined whether you acted in a reasonable manner or had the opportunity to take precautions against risk of harm. For example, if you were aware of a giant, wet and slippery puddle in the middle of a shopping centre food court and you decided it would be fun to see how far you could slide through it and then have the bad fortune of breaking your arm, then it would be determined that you didn't act as a reasonable person, and you would not be successful in making a public liability claim against the shopping centre.
