All Other Injury Claims

If you sustain an injury in any public place, whether that place is controlled by a private person/entity (eg a shopping centre), or a government authority (eg on a footpath or public park or reserve) and it can be shown that your injury happened because of someone else’s negligence then you should obtain legal advice about making a ‘public liability’ claim for appropriate compensation. Other types of ‘public liability’ claims which can arise include:

– Dog attacks
– Slips and falls at private residences
– Boat (marine) accidents
– Sports field (school yard) accidents
– Recreational activities (eg accidents at public pools, rock climbing, sky diving, go kart racing)

At Hall Payne Lawyers our team of specialist Compensation Lawyers can help you get the compensation you deserve in the event of an accident where someone else was at fault. If you need legal advice for an accident, please contact us today.

Common Questions

When should I make a claim?

Strict time limits apply and your entitlement to compensation may be lost if you claim late.

Hall Payne knows that when you can’t work due to injury, it is a very challenging time. Financial stress can make the situation overwhelming. The sooner a claim is accepted, the sooner you’ll receive compensation.

How long will my claim take?

The sooner your claim is finalised, the sooner you can move on with your life. That said, a properly prepared and managed claim can’t be rushed.
