We’ll get you more compensation.

Slip and fall injuries often mean time off work, unplanned expenses and financial stress. But we’re here to help. We get to know you and your family to learn about your life before you were injured. We look beyond your injuries, to understand your work, family, social and financial situation. Then we look at what’s changed. Many of our clients’ injuries have led to other life complications and health issues. By getting to know you personally we identify these issues and claim all your entitlements. That’s why you’ll get more compensation with Law Partners on your side.

How we can help you.

Your Law Partners slip and fall lawyer will:

slip and fall icon

Gather evidence of your accident, which may include photos of the hazard that caused your fall, CCTV footage, statements from witnesses and accident reports from the relevant building manager. 

Magnifying glass over medical forms. Failure to warn/inform icon

Have your injuries assessed by a doctor. We need medical evidence such as scans and x-rays to prove what injuries you suffered from the accident. 

Team icon

Identify who’s responsible. Your slip and fall lawyer needs to identify who is the organisation or person in charge of the location or building where you fell, as we’ll be claiming against their public liability insurer. 

Unsure if eligible icon

Once we’ve submitted your slip and fall negligence claim, if the insurer accepts liability then it’s likely it will offer you a settlement payment. Most of our slip and fall claims are settled without the need for court action. 

institution icon

If the insurer rejects liability or we’re unable to settle out of court, we may need to take court action to get your compensation. 

You’re in safe hands with Law Partners.

Your slip and fall lawyer is backed by a team of specialists including paralegals, medico-legal experts, forensic accountants and barristers. Your team will work hard for you, check in with you regularly and always keep you up to date with your case. You’re in safe hands with Australia’s largest specialist personal injury firm.

Joseph's story

I thought I'd never get my life back
Restaurant owner Joseph had his life turned upside down after a horrible slip in a public toilet.

Justice for Miata’s death

We're just praying that justice can be done

A house fire tore through the Kollie family’s rental property and resulted in the tragic death of Miata. The family’s strength to achieve justice for their daughter’s death throughout their public liability claim is nothing short of inspiring.

We all had one thing in common

I had no income so I was pretty stuck

Financial hardship as a result of serious injury is not only devastating to the individual but also their family. These people have managed to come out the other side and we’re honoured to have helped them on their journey.

Frequently asked questions.

Slip and fall compensation claims typically take 12-18 months to settle. However, they can take significantly longer depending on your injuries, especially if we can’t reach a settlement agreement and we need to take the insurer to court to pursue compensation. It’s also important to allow time for your injuries to stabilise so that we can make sure we claim your full entitlements.

You can rest assured your Law Partners slip and fall lawyer will work as quickly as possible and get you the maximum compensation for your injuries.

We understand that making a claim against a public authority or a business is a big decision, and one that may be causing you some stress. But remember that when you claim compensation, you’re seeking a settlement from a public liability insurer to compensate you for your losses. It’s a settlement you’re entitled to and deserve to receive if you’ve been harmed through negligence.  

If you’re having trouble deciding, you’re welcome to simply call one of our slip and fall lawyers and have a chat. There’s no pressure or obligation to proceed with a claim if you’re not ready, and we’ll always be here if you decide to go ahead. But it’s best to lodge your claim as soon as possible, as it can be harder to gather evidence if a lot of time has passed.

When you make a slip and fall compensation claim, you’re claiming the defendant is liable for your injuries. If the defendant admits liability, then their public liability insurer is likely to offer you a sum of money as compensation – this is known as a settlement. If we can’t come to agreement on the settlement amount, or if the defendant denies liability, then we have the option of taking them to court and letting a judge decide on the outcome – this is known as litigation.

Most of our claims are settled out of court. Your Law Partners slip and fall lawyer will keep you informed about your claim regularly and advise you on your options.

Caring for our clients drives everything we do – that’s why thousands of Australians every year choose Law Partners.
