Public Liability Claims – Summary
A Public Liability claim for personal injuries is one that involves an injury or illness occurring on public or private property as a result of fault or negligence by the authority responsible.
Examples of such claims include claims arising as a result of injuries or illness due to:
- a slip, trip and fall
- physical or sexual assault
- accident at a school, college or a university
- a fire or explosion
- animal attacks
- food poisoning
- recreational accidents
- accidents at a construction site
- accidents at the premises of a company or other organisation
- accidents at someone else’s home
Your claim will start with completing a Notice of Claim form pursuant to the Personal Injuries Proceedings Act which is required to be served on the at-fault party. Usually, the at-fault party has insurance and the insurers will engage lawyers to oppose your claim and attempt to negotiate a settlement to prevent you from filing in court.
