Public Liability Accident Lawyers

If you are injured, and it’s someone else’s fault, you want to know that there is protection in place to provide for potential medical bills, lost earnings and any other costs associated with your accident. 

That’s where public liability claims and our experienced public liability lawyers come in. 

Public liability law is there to protect you in the event of a slip, trip, fall, injury, illness or another issue that you encounter in public. We all need to feel safe in our society, and if you’re injured due to someone else’s negligence or failure to take reasonable care for your safety - and you can prove it - you may be able to make a claim for compensation.  

Accidents do happen, but if you have been injured, we can help by providing legal advice and guidance on the best way to proceed.  

The different states and territories in Australia each have different laws that set out how public liability and compensation claims are handled, and the various accidents and injuries are covered by different laws. If you have been injured, it’s vital that you speak to our ROC Legal team today to get legal advice on how to proceed. We are on hand to answer any questions you may have about your injury, illness or other public liability concerns and can help you make a claim if you are eligible to seek compensation.

Who Can Claim?

If you are injured and can show fault, then you may be able to claim compensation for any potential loss of earnings and any medical expenses that you may need to pay. When you make a public liability claim, we want to put you in a position as if the incident had never occurred and we will work to get you compensated for anything that has arisen as a result of your injury or accident. So, you might be able to claim for any care that people have provided to you, or for things that you have been unable to do. 

We will discuss with you about whether any pain and suffering caused by your injury may be claimable - and we can provide information on how to go about providing evidence for any psychological trauma that you may have been through. 

What Do I Need to Do to Get Started With my Claim?

First things first: give us a call on 1300 196 219 or get in touch online. At ROC Legal, we can offer you guidance and advice as to whether or not you can potentially claim for a public liability payment. 

If you or someone close to you has been injured, it’s important that you gather as much information as possible. We will need to ensure that we have enough material to compile your claim, and will require things such as: 

  • Witness details and information
  • Photographs of the accident
  • Photographs of your injuries
  • Records - medical and personal

We can also work with you to gather any evidence that we need on your behalf. This can include information like medical details and evidence of lost earnings. Our legal team will speak to experts about your injuries and look at the future needs you’re going to have as a result of your injury. 

As your public liability lawyers, it is our role to communicate everything to you clearly and to liaise with the other party to ensure that you get the best possible outcome.

Are There Any Time Limits on Public Liability Claims?

Yes, there are. As a result, you need to make sure that you get in touch with us as soon as possible following your injury so that we can let you know about limitation periods and how your claim needs to progress. 

We understand that being injured is never easy on anyone, but we can help ease the burden with expert advice and guidance from beginning to end.
