The Civil Liabilities Act of 2002 protects you in the event of an accident or incident that occurs on public property that you were not responsible for, that causes you injury or death of a loved one. The Act covers injury, death, damage or loss to property, and economic loss which is the result of defective products or negligent service.
Property owners, organisations and individuals are responsible for taking a "reasonable amount of care" to prevent accidents and injuries, and if they don't, you may be entitled to compensation.
Paramount Compensation Lawyers will work with you to prove that the responsible person or organisation, was negligent. In some cases, your injury may fall under different categories of personal injury law and it may involve any of the following:
- Slip and fall accidents on public property
- Accidents on private property, if it is caused by faulty workmanship
- Accidents that occur on recreational or entertainment property
- Faulty products
- Negligent services
- Dog attacks
- Food poisoning
Here at Paramount Compensation Lawyers, we have dealt with countless public liability cases, some that involved suing the Government, and others that relate to social justice issues that involve public interest immunity and Ombudsman secrecy.
