Public Liability

If you have been injured in a public place and it was someone else's fault, you could be entitled to Public Liability compensation. Barbante Personal Injury Lawyers have extensive experience and expertise in this area and can help you pursue a Public Liability claim for the injuries and financial losses you have suffered. Your entitlement to compensation is likely to depend on how severe your injury is and whether it was the fault of another person. You might also be entitled to claim compensation for medical expenses and lost wages. If you are significantly injured, you could also be entitled a lump-sum amount. We can explain the process to you and answer any of your questions.

If you are injured in a public place, try to ensure you contact the relevant authority and lodge an incident report as soon as possible. Also, try to take clear photos of the accident scene as soon as you can and gather details of any witnesses who saw the incident. You will then have three (3) years from the injury date to start your public liability compensation claim.

An injury in a public place can be devastating. Barbante Personal Injury Lawyers are here to help you claim the compensation you are entitled to and deserve.

The process of your claim

Each Public Liability case is unique due to the medical facts and legal implications. However, there is generally a set of steps that occur within each claim. Our dedicated team at Barbante Personal Injury Lawyers will guide you through each of these steps by ensuring that you get the best possible outcome for your case.

  3. Collect and review medical evidence We will obtain your medical records to understand the nature of your injury and the effect it has had on your life. 
  4. Obtain expert evidence It is necessary to gather further evidence from an independent medical expert in which they will comment on the standard of care you received. 
  5. File Court Documents Once we have gathered sufficient medical evidence that supports your case, we will then proceed to lodge court proceedings on your behalf. 
  6. Resolution Generally, most medical negligence cases are resolved at a pre-trial settlement conference, preventing the need to go to court.
