Our Services: Public Liability

Public Liability

Many different types of claims can be described as Public Liability claims. We provide services for personal injury claims that draw upon a range of public liability areas such as:
  • Slip and fall claims
  • Injuries on public and private property
  • Injuries occurring during recreational activities

Most public liability claims are based upon the assumption of a ‘duty of care’ by the landowner, council or occupier of land or premises. Councils, owners and occupiers of commercial and private premises owe a duty of care to take reasonable care for the safety of people who enter onto their property.

To recover damages in most public liability claim cases, you must be able to prove:

  • The nature of the duty of care owed.
  • Breach of that duty of care.
  • That the personal injury has been caused by a breach of that duty of care.

Public Liability claims have very specific parameters, and are well-legislated. Sinnamon Lawyers are expert personal injury lawyers for claims arising from an injury occurring in a public place.

There are strict time limits for the lodgement of personal injury claims so we encourage you to act quickly and seek the advice of a personal injury lawyer. If you do no act within the required time limits, your right to claim damages will be lost.
