Public Liability Claims

Has somebody’s carelessness or disregard caused you to sustain an injury? If you’ve been hurt in a public place, you might be entitled to make a public liability claim and pursue compensation. Our personal injury lawyers have the experience and expertise to assess your case and advise you on its validity, whether you’ve:

  • Fallen in a shopping centre
  • Experienced food poisoning in a restaurant
  • Been attacked by an animal in a park
  • Tripped in a schoolyard
  • Sustained an injury in any other public setting or private premises.

No win no fee public liability lawyers in Brisbane, Gold Coast and across all of Queensland

Your financial situation should never prevent you from seeking compensation for an injury, especially since that injury is likely costing you in medical bills and time off from work. This is why The Personal Injury Lawyers work on a no win no fee basis. We believe anyone making a public liability claim deserves adequate representation from a passionate lawyer with a strong track record of successful settlements. We will only ask you to pay our legal fees after we have successfully settled your case. We have offices centrally based in Brisbane and the Gold Coast which service all of Queensland, but most of the time you'll never need to visit us as most claims are managed online with you.

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.

How do I make a public liability claim?

Our team will work with you to collect evidence and build your case. With The Personal Injury Lawyers on your case, you can leave the technicalities and legal processes to us. This means you can focus your time and energy on recovering from your injury while we pursue your claim.

How much does it cost to make a public liability claim in Brisbane?

We operate on a no win no fee basis. This means there are no upfront costs for your public liability claim. When your case is settled, we will calculate your legal fees. These are determined fairly and transparently and you are covered by Queensland law under the 50/50 rule.

Who pays my public liability compensation?

In most cases, the at-fault party’s insurance provider will pay your compensation. This is why councils and companies are legally required to have public liability insurance.

What will my public liability compensation cover?

Your case’s specific circumstances will determine what compensation you receive. Generally, your compensation will be calculated to match the difference between your life path before and after the incident occurred. Specific items that can be covered by compensation include:

  • Medical expenses (ones you’ve already paid, plus ones you expect to pay in the future)
  • Loss of income/earnings
  • Reduction of life quality/enjoyment
  • Help/care provided by friends and family members.
