Public Place Accident Claims Generally
In order to succeed in a public accident and injury liability claim, you need to prove the negligence was caused by someone else (i.e. the other person, company, entity, etc). The mere fact that the other party has a public liability insurance policy in place does not necessarily mean that you will receive compensation as you still need to provide that they are liable for your accident and injuries.
If it is found that that they failed to exercise reasonable care for your safety, and you suffered injuries as a result of this, then you might have a claim for compensation. No two cases are the same when it comes to public liability claims. If you think that you may have a claim, you need to contact Vilic Law for obligation-free advice. You can get in touch with us by calling 1300 647 427 or through the online submission, in which case we will give you a call the same day.
In order to make a successful claim, you need to demonstrate that:
• the person or company at fault owed you a duty of care;
• the person or company breached that duty of care; and
• as a result, you were injured and suffered loss.
