What is a public liability claim?

A public liability claim is a legal avenue for individuals who have sustained personal injuries in public places or on third-party premises due to another party’s fault. It enables them to pursue compensation for medical expenses, loss of income, and other associated damages.

What should I do immediately after the incident?

After the incident, prioritise seeking medical attention for any injuries. If possible, collect evidence like photos and witness details. Notify the property owner or responsible party and report the incident. Finally, contact QLegal to discuss your case and explore potential next steps.

Public Liability Claims FAQs Guide:

Know your rights, protect your rights!

There is a time limit known as the statute of limitations, which varies by state. Exceeding this timeframe could result in losing your right to make a claim. Generally, a public liability claim must be lodged within 9 months of the accident date. It's crucial to consult with QLegal as soon as possible after the incident to ensure compliance with the specific time frame applicable to your case.

If you've sustained a personal injury in a public place or on third-party premises due to their fault, your claim may be valid. Our specialised legal professionals in personal injury claims can assess the validity of your case during a consultation.

Examples of incidents that may result in public liability claims include slip and fall accidents, injuries in retail stores or restaurants, accidents on footpaths or public walkways, and any situation where negligence by a property owner or entity has caused your injury.

Usually, you must demonstrate that the property owner or responsible entity failed to maintain a safe environment, leading directly to your injury. A lawyer can assist in gathering evidence to establish negligence.

If the property owner denies liability, it doesn't necessarily mean your case is lost. QLegal has extensive experience in navigating complex situations like this. We'll investigate the circumstances, gather evidence, and build a robust case to prove negligence and secure the compensation you deserve.

Compensation varies based on several factors, including the severity of your injuries, medical expenses, lost income, and the impact on your daily life. Rest assured, we're committed to fighting for your rights and ensuring you receive the compensation you deserve. We'll guide you through the claim process with dedication and determination, calculating a fair amount that reflects the full extent of your damages.

While not all cases end up in court, many public liability claims are resolved through negotiations with the responsible party's insurance company. However, if a fair settlement cannot be reached, your case may proceed to court.
