A public liability claim is a claim made where a person sustains injury in a public place as a result of the negligence of another.
Common examples of public liability claims include injuries arising from:
- A dog bite where the dog owner has failed to leash their dog;
- Slips in shopping centres where the floor surface is wet;
- Injuries at playgrounds where repairs have not been undertaken;
- Trips on uneven footpaths.
A claim will usually be accepted if it can be established that the authority or company managing the public place has been negligent and failed to take reasonable steps to reduce the risk of injury or loss.
If you have sustained injury in a public place, we recommend that you contact our office and arrange an appointment to see one of our Personal Injury & Compensation Solicitors in our Sydney office. By appointment, we can also arrange a time for you to see one of our lawyers at a branch office. For a complete listing please see our "Locations" tab.
