More personal, more compensation.

We take time to get to know you personally. It’s how we spot the things others don’t, so you get more compensation.

We’re rated 4.9 from 1099 reviews1.

Injuries from accidents in public places often mean time off work, unplanned expenses and financial stress. But your situation is unique, and your injuries may have led to other health issues and complications. We’ll take time to get to know you personally, identify all your issues and claim everything you’re entitled to. That’s why you’ll get more compensation with Law Partners, Australia’s largest specialist personal injury firm.

What can I claim?

It’s hard enough to cope with an unexpected injury – you shouldn’t have to deal with financial pain too. Depending on your injuries, you may be entitled to payments for lost income, medical expenses, domestic assistance, pain and suffering and future losses. Call us for free advice on how much you can claim.

Common claims include:

Accidents in supermarkets and shopping centres can be caused by situations like slippery floors, dropped or spilled food items and trip hazards. If you’ve been injured, our specialist public liability lawyers can help you claim all the compensation you’re entitled to.

Landlords and building managers have a duty of care to tenants and visitors to ensure their safety. If you’ve been injured at a rental property and it can be shown that the injury resulted from a breach of that duty, then you’re likely to be entitled to compensation.

Parks present a range of hazardous situations that can result in injury, and over the years we’ve helped many clients who have been injured in accidents in public parks. Injuries can be caused by trip hazards like uneven paths, playground equipment, exercise equipment and maintenance works.

Operators of recreational facilities and sporting venues have a duty of care to ensure the safety of visitors. If an operator is negligent and you’re injured as a result, then it’s likely you can claim compensation.

Frequently asked questions

You have three years from the date of injury to claim public liability compensation. However, in some cases it might be possible to claim up to three years from becoming aware of your injury. If you’re a minor or a person with a disability you have six years from the date of injury.

Public liability claims typically take 12-18 months to settle. However, they can take significantly longer depending on your injuries, especially if you can’t reach a settlement agreement and you need to take the insurer to court to pursue compensation.

Public liability claims payouts depend on the extent of your injuries and the expenses you have incurred. You might be able to claim public liability compensation for lost income, medical expenses, travel expenses, domestic assistance, pain and suffering, permanent impairment and future losses.

If you qualify for all these entitlements, public liability claims payouts can run into hundreds of thousands or even millions of dollars. But there are many public liability claims where even relatively minor injuries have resulted in tens of thousands of dollars in compensation.

For public liability claims to be successful, you’ll need to prove that:

  • Your accident could have been avoided if the authority or building manager had taken action to prevent it
  • You’ve incurred losses as a result of your injuries

Proving these two points is not always straightforward – a building manager can only be held liable if they knew or should have known about a potential hazard and did nothing about it.

Take for example a slip and fall accident. If a hazard like roof leak causing a slippery floor had just happened prior to your accident, and there was no way for the building manager to know about it yet, it’s very unlikely they could be held liable. However, if the building manager knew about the slippery floor and failed to do anything about it, then it’s likely they would be held liable for your accident.

If someone can be held liable for your accident and you’ve had a significant injury, time off work and medical bills, then it’s likely to be worth pursuing public liability compensation.

It is possible to make a claim without using a lawyer, however it’s important to understand that you’ll be making your claim against an insurance company that does have lawyers on its side. So you’ll have a much better chance of success and you’re likely to get a much better compensation payout if you have a good public liability lawyer on your side.

You might have seen ads for ‘slip and fall’ or ‘slip, trip and fall’ lawyers. These are just other names for a public liability lawyers, used because a large number of public liability claims are for slip and fall injuries. For example, a common claim is for slipping and falling on a wet floor in a supermarket.

Most of our clients have suffered a sudden injury, so what they don’t need from their legal representative is more nasty surprises. This is why I’m always upfront and honest with all my clients, so they know exactly what to expect during the compensation process.

This is my first time ever needing representation in a workplace event, to say I was nervous is an understatement. From the moment I contacted Law Partners, Sophie was incredible, she put my mind at ease, was efficient and compassionate. I would highly recommend to anyone who doesn’t know the steps to take in actioning a claim, or just needs advice to contact Sophie, all the anxiety is lifted and they take care of everything. Thank you so much.

Andrew and Kylie have been amazing, they always go above and beyond with their service. I was having a really bad time with my workers compensation claim. I was referred to Law Partners, they fought for my rights and made the insurance company accountable. I finally had my surgery which I needed to help me recover.

I look forward to working with them in the future on other aspects of my claim. This team really cares! You are not treated like a number… unlike the insurance companies.

Thanks to Law Partners for everything I feel safe and secure knowingly I can trust they are looking out for me always. Highly recommend for their professional, quick and responsive service. Like I said Exceptional Service!!!

This company has been very good to me in trying to get me some resources from the company where I was hurt or injured they have been very good in contacting me and they seem very knowledgeable of what they doing especially the younger lady Sarah King she is a brilliant Solicitor I would have her beside me any day to fight for me.

Unfortunately The company that I had the injury with are stating they have no information or records or video now of the accident so I have to withdraw my case because of them stating they have no information or records on my case but they’re not telling the truth because it really happened and I can’t fight goliath I’m only the little person needless to say Sarah has been really wonderful in trying to fight goliath for me so if anyone ever needs to have a good representation of a solicitor I recommend this company very very well it’s just a shame I have had to withdraw through the people saying where the accident happened they have no record it never happened but it did.

This company is a great company for people who have all the proof they need to pursue their accident case highly recommend this company
