Public Liability

If you suffer an injury which is caused by someone else's negligence or fault, you may be entitled to damages. The circumstances where you can claim compensation for this type of injury include:


Accidents in public places including shopping centres and other retail outlets

  • Footpath accidents (subject to some significant exclusionary provisions)
  • School accidents
  • Playground accidents
  • Food poisoning
  • Ballooning accidents
  • Product failure
  • Accidents on private property (on someone else's premises)
  • Chemical exposure


These claims are usually only worth pursuing if the negligent party is insured.


Damages can include:

  • Pain and suffering (provided you are left with a permanent impairment of more than 5%)
  • Loss of earnings Medical and like expenses

The claim is usually commenced by serving a letter of demand and claims are often settled out of court. If you have suffered an injury which you believe has been caused through someone else's fault, you should seek expert legal advice.

Phone and Skype appointments available. Home or hospital visits can be arranged. The first consultation is free and all work is done on a “no win/no fee” basis*.
