If you have suffered a slip injury, trip injury, or fall injury in a public, commercial or retail property, our Public Liability experts have the skills and expertise to help you claim the compensation you need to support your recovery.
Do I have a slip, trip, or fall injury claim?
Whether you were injured by a slip and fall in a shopping centre or elsewhere in public, you may have a public liability claim if another person, business, or organisation caused your injury.
Your legal team will need to prove whoever was responsible was ‘negligent’, meaning they failed to take the reasonable care expected of them to avoid your injury.
Public liability claims commonly occur due to:
- injuries in supermarkets
- injuries in rental properties
- injuries in carparks
- injuries in at school, daycare or while playing sport
- other related injuries in public.
If you have suffered a serious slip, trip, or fall injury in a public place due to someone else's negligence you should seek legal advice from our Public Liability lawyers as soon as possible – strict legal time limits apply.
Our slip, trip and fall injury experts have a proven record when it comes to achieving successful outcomes for our clients with public liability claims.
We’ll fight to maximise your compensation, ensuring you receive the support for your recovery that you deserve.
What can I claim compensation for?
Every injury is unique, so each compensation claim will vary according to the specifics of the case. Once your lawyer is familiar with your situation, they can explain what you should be able to claim.
A successful public liability claim may include compensation for:
- medical and hospital costs
- loss of earnings
- pain and suffering
- home help you may have received, whether paid or unpaid.
