If you have been injured in a public place through no fault of your own, you may be eligible to claim compensation. In order to be entitled to compensation it must be established that your injury was caused by the negligence of whoever was in control of the public place.
Public liability can cover a whole range of organisations or entities including but not limited to Councils, Supermarkets, Entertainment Venues, Businesses, Private Property owners, Landlords and Transport Providers.
We are all entitled to feel safe in public as we go about our day to day activities and when we frequent places for which the safety and control is the responsibility of someone else, we are entitled to expect they exercise a reasonable duty of care for our safety.
Public Liability Claims in NSW are governed by the Civil Liability Act 2002 (NSW). This legislation was introduced in 2002 in response to a campaign driven in part by the Insurance Industry arguing that the cost of Public Liability Insurance was being driven up by Public Liability Claims. This legislation has the effect of making it more difficult to succeed in some Public Liability Claims, particularly against Local Councils.
It is essential you obtain legal advice as soon as possible after you have suffered the injury. Obtaining evidence about the circumstances of your injury as soon as possible is important and your lawyer Catherine McKay will be able to advise and assist you to ensure you have the best opportunity of winning your case.
