Public Liability Claims

If you’ve been injured in a public place you may be able to make a public liability claim. Public liability claims arise when people suffer injuries in a public place, such as a supermarket or business, which are caused by someone else’s fault.

The most common types of public liability claims in Australia involve accidents such as slipping in supermarkets or shopping centres.

The expert team of lawyers at Bradford Legal have represented numerous injured people with respect to public liability claims where proper duty of care has not been followed. Examples of common public liability compensation claims include:

  • Falls from ladders and roofs
  • Slipping and/or tripping in a shopping centre, supermarkets, retain outlets or other public places
  • Injuries as a result of poor business environment used by the public or employees
  • Medical negligence claims;
  • Injuries sustained in carparks, on footpaths;
  • Food poisoning
  • Injury due to defective products
  • Accidents or injuries in rental properties/private residences where the building owner has public liability insurance
  • Accidents at schools
  • Incidents involving falling tree branches in public places
  • Injuries due to inadequate or faulty warning signs
  • Injuries due to road works or other construction
  • Falls down stairs
  • Falls from poorly maintained playground equipment

For the most part, a public liability claim will require the injured person to take legal action for negligence and/or common law damages against the negligent party as soon as possible. A successful public liability claim can help with loss of earnings, medical costs and more.

In the present compensation climate there are significant restrictions on bringing claims of a public liability nature. The team of lawyers at Bradford Legal is in the best position to give advice and represent you through the complicated legal minefield of public liability law, the costs involved and the different types of claims.

Most businesses in Australia have public liability insurance to cover any public liability claim that may be made against them for injuries suffered on their premises. An injured person could also make a claim for accidents which occur at privately owned premises such as houses. Most owners are insured for claims made against them through their home and contents insurance policies.

Public liability law requires that if a property owner becomes aware of a danger or hazard on its premises they need to take reasonable steps to minimize that danger or hazard. This is done to avoid exposing people who attend the premises to the risk of injury. In cases where there is a danger or hazard due to the state of a property owner’s premises which could have been easily and cheaply rectified and which results in an injury to someone who attends the premises, that property owner could be liable for damages, medical expenses and medical treatment to the person who suffered the injury.
