Public liability claims are made if you suffer an injury in the public domain in circumstances where you are not at fault in the accident.
Claims of this nature include the following.
- Slip and falls on public property
- Injuries in private buildings
- Injuries in rental premises
- Recreational or sporting accidents
- Accidents on school or university grounds
- Assaults by bouncers in a hotel
- Food poisoning
- Dog attacks
- Boating injuries
- Aviation injuries
- Defective products
If you have suffered an injury which you believe has been caused by the fault of another party, you may be entitled to claim compensation on the basis of negligence.
Even if you cannot prove fault on the part of another party, you may be entitled to make a claim for total and permanent disability, which is made against your superannuation fund.
It is important that you seek early legal advice regarding your potential entitlement to compensation. A public liability lawyer from Stacks Law Firm can help you by explaining how the law operates in Queensland and what your potential entitlements may be.
