Public Liability Claims (including Slip and Fall Accidents)

Public liability and/or slip and fall accidents include accidents that happen in a public place or on someone else’s property. Common injuries include back, leg and arm injuries from trips, falls and other types of accidents. In order to have a worthwhile claim you need to be able to show that someone else contributed to or caused your injury (i.e. you need to be able to prove negligence). Our expert personal injury lawyers can advise you on this and let you know if you have a worthwhile claim. For a FREE CASE ASSESSMENT call us today

How Do We Charge?

We offer FREE INITIAL CONSULTATIONS for all public liability enquiries. We also work on a ‘NO WIN, NO FEE’ basis for most claims.

We also cover the cost of all outlays on your behalf throughout the running of your claim. Not all firms are willing to cover the cost of outlays and some may ask you to pay these fees yourself.

Should I Obtain Legal Advice?

Time Limits Apply – Act Now!

There are STRICT TIME LIMITS that apply to making a claim for personal injury in Queensland. Therefore, you should contact Stallion Lawyers as soon as possible following your accident, in order to ensure that your legal rights are protected.

The law is often complicated and confusing for non-lawyers. Further, Insurance companies won’t provide you with advice and they will not ensure that your legal rights are being protected. Therefore, in order to ensure that you obtain the maximum compensation that you are legally entitled to, you should obtain legal advice from Stallion Lawyers as soon as possible.

Who Am I Suing?

Often the owner or occupier of the premises where your injury occurred will have public liability insurance. Alternatively, if a business or organisation caused the injury, then they will also usually have public liability insurance. The claim is then made against the public liability insurer, who pays out the compensation upon settlement of your claim. If you have been injured in an accident in a public place or on someone else’s property, then you should talk to a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible, in order to protect your rights.
