Frequently Asked Questions About Public Liability Injury Compensation Claims
Am I Eligible To Make A Public Liability Claim?
This will depend on the specific circumstances that caused or led to your injury.
If there is sufficient evidence (e.g. photos and witness statements) that you were harmed due to another party breaching their duty of care, you will generally be eligible to make a claim.
Your eligibility can also be influenced by the severity of your physical and/or psychological damage.
How Long Do I Have To Make A Public Liability Claim?
There are strict time limits that apply to public liability claims. It’s best to seek advice sooner rather than later – ideally less than 12 months after the incident.
Once you’ve got our team on your side, we’ll handle everything to ensure no claim deadlines are missed. We generally recommend initiating legal action as soon as possible after you have been injured.
