Perth Public Liability Lawyers

While it may be embarrassing it’s not uncommon for people to have slips, trips and falls in public places such as shopping malls, supermarkets, hotels, pubs and council properties.

A slippery floor, a loose tile, an uneven footpath and many other obstacles are examples of things that can cause an injury that a person may be able to claim compensation for through a public liability claim.

It should be noted the injury may be sustained on public or private property – even in someone’s backyard. So long as you can demonstrate legal fault or negligence by another party in causing the injury, you may have a public liability claim for compensation.

Public Liability Lawyers Perth are experts in making this type of claim. If you believe you have grounds for a public liability claim, Public Liability Lawyers Perth will help you file the claim on time with all the necessary information. You can help the chance of your claim being successful by noting some of the following steps.

What You Need to Include with Your Claim

There is a lot of detailed information required to support a public liability claim.

The process of gathering this information begins soon after the incident which caused the injury.

Priority is to seek medical assistance as soon as possible after you receive the injury. As with car accidents, some injuries can only emerge in the days and weeks after the incident so it’s important to be assessed by a medical practitioner promptly after the accident so that the injury is properly recorded. This can be crucial to later support your claim.

It’s also vital that the owner/operator of the venue where the incident occurred is informed about what happened.

Injuries sustained on large properties such as shopping malls and office buildings will often be recorded by the owner/operator in an accident report. A person making a claim should ensure they have a copy of this report or any other record of the incident occurring.

While you may be dealing with the immediate demands of your injury, it is enormously helpful to your case if you – or a family member or friend who is with you – can collect evidence of the scene. This might involve taking notes about the details of the scene such as the time of day, the nature of the hazard you encountered, any evidence of your injury, etc.

Contact details of any witnesses to the incident can also be invaluable when Public Liability Lawyers Perth later compile your claim.

Other things to remember are that you keep all records of your medical treatment, including any costs travelling to and from appointments. If the injury causes you to take time away from work, also record the amount of any lost wages accrued while you recover.

What can be Claimed in a Public Liability Claim?

This type of claim can provide compensation for past and future medical expenses; for past and future economic losses; loss of business profits; care provided by family or friends to help you with your injury; paid care services; travel expenses associated with your medical care; and damages associated with pain and suffering.

A public liability claim must be filed within three years of the date of the accident to bring your case to court, otherwise, the claim will be barred. It’s still possible to file a claim and receive compensation after the three-year time if you’re able to show you had a ‘reasonable excuse’ for the delay.

A public liability claim can take from six to 18 months to resolve from beginning to end. Insurance companies will generally vigorously defend the venue owner from admitting liability, meaning sometimes a court will need to decide the merits of the claim. Court action will add to the time and expense in bringing the claim to its conclusion.

Public Liability Lawyers Perth has the expertise to provide the right advice on your claim. We will give you an accurate picture of the likelihood of your claim’s success, help collect the necessary evidence, including medical reports on the severity of your injury, and make sure that your claim is processed on time.
