Public Liability

Injured in a Public or Private Place?

If you have suffered an injury in a public or private place due to the negligence of someone else, you may be eligible to make a Public Liability claim.

Common examples which may give rise to a public liability claim are:

  • Physical assaults.
  • Supermarket or shopping centre slips, falls and trips.
  • Slips, falls and trips on private property.
  • Slips, falls and trips on public property such as footpaths or playgrounds.
  • School-yard bullying and harassment.
  • Sporting injuries.
  • Injuries caused by poorly managed rental and/or residential properties.
  • Animal bites or injuries caused by animals.

Karlos Lawyers are experts in Personal Injury claims. Whether you’re injured or hurt at a public place or on private property, knowing what to do next can be a tricky, especially when medical bills continue to pile up and there seems to be no end in sight.

Unfortunately, there is no system or scheme in place which provides monetary and medical support as you contend with your injuries. To recover the costs of your medical bills or to claim lump sum damages for your Pain, Suffering and loss of enjoyment of life as well as economic consequences and lost wages, you must bring a claim directly on the person or entity responsible for your injuries.

It is therefore critical that you get proper legal advice before commencing any legal action or negotiating with the other side.

At Karlos Lawyers we are injury and compensation experts; we can help you navigate the uncertainties, minimise your costs, helping you focus on your recovery.

To bring a Public Liability claim for damages:

  • You must demonstrate you have suffered a permanent identifiable injury.
  • The injuries must be considered significant.
  • The injury must be caused by the fault (negligence) of the party who owns, operates, or effectively controls the area in which you suffered the injuries.
  • The risk of injury was reasonably foreseeable and there were reasonably practicable alternatives that should have been taken to minimise or eliminate the risk of injury.

If you believe you have a right to bring a claim, you must act quickly as strict time limits apply; you must bring a claim within 3 years from your date of injury or from the date in which you discovered you had sustained a permanent injury.

You only get one chance to bring forward a claim for negligence, it is therefore critical you get it right. At Karlos Lawyers, we can help you claim what’s yours and obtain the best possible results whilst maintaining your dignity so you can move forward and focus on your recovery.
