Frequently asked questions about public liability injury compensation claims

This will depend on the specific circumstances that caused or led to your injury.

If there is sufficient evidence (e.g. photos and witness statements) that you were harmed due to another party breaching their duty of care, you will generally be eligible to make a claim.

Your eligibility can also be influenced by the severity of your physical and/or psychological damage.

There are strict time limits that apply to public liability claims. It’s best to seek advice from an experienced Public Liability Lawyer sooner rather than later – ideally less than 12 months after the incident. A Lawyer experienced in such claims will be able to advise you on how to claim liability insurance and the process and timelines involved.

Once you’ve got our team on your side, we’ll handle everything to ensure no claim deadlines are missed. We generally recommend initiating legal action as soon as possible after you have been injured.

Your financial situation should never prevent you from seeking compensation for an injury, especially since that injury is likely costing you in medical bills and time off from work.

This is why The Personal Injury Lawyers work on a no win no fee basis.

We believe anyone making a public liability claim deserves adequate representation from a passionate lawyer with a strong track record of successful settlements.

We will only ask you to pay our legal fees after we have successfully settled your case.

We operate with a no win no fee guarantee. This means there are no upfront costs for your public liability claim.

You may find some of the legislation that applies to public liability claims for personal injury in Queensland useful.

Your case’s specific circumstances will determine what compensation you receive.

Generally, your compensation will be calculated to match the difference between your life path before and after the incident occurred. Specific items that can be covered by compensation include:


  • Medical expenses (ones you’ve already paid, plus ones you expect to pay in the future)
  • Loss of income/earnings
  • Reduction of life quality/enjoyment
  • Help/care provided by friends and family members
