A wide variety of claims fall under the public liability banner. These can include slips and trips, being struck by objects, product liability, accidents on other property, non-vehicle accidents (scooters/planes etc.), assaults, animal attacks and the list goes on.
Most claims involve an insured respondent but sometimes, for example where an assault occurs, the occupier (or where the assault took place) or employer will not be responsible, so the claim may be uninsured and only as good as the ability of the person you are claiming against to pay any award.
In Queensland, there is a regulated pre-court procedure with claims forms and steps required to be taken to pursue your claim. Therefore, it pays to consult an expert to ensure your claim is successful.
