Your rights to being safe in public spaces
From car accidents to having a fall, trouble can strike at any time. At first, we may assume that the problem is ours alone to deal with, that it is up to us to fund our recovery, cover for lost wages and foot the bill for any rehabilitation. But what happens if someone else’s negligence was ultimately responsible?
If you’ve experienced any of the following, you may be eligible for financial compensation:
- A fall in a shopping centre
- Food poisoning in a restaurant
- Dog attacks
- Accident in an entertainment venue
Suffering an injury in any other public setting or private premises
The Personal Injury Lawyers are here to help you navigate the complex area of public liability law and get the compensation payout you’ll need.

Frequently asked questions about public liability injury compensation claims
This will depend on the specific circumstances that caused or led to your injury claim, which we will discuss with you at your initial consultation.
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 for any injuries sustained.
There is a wide range of circumstances that can be considered when considering lodging a claim. Your eligibility can also be influenced by the severity of your physical and/or psychological damage.
Strict time limits apply to public liability claims. If you want to seek legal advice from a personal injury lawyer, then an experienced public liability lawyer, Gold Coast or Brisbane based is best done sooner rather than later – ideally less than 12 months after the incident. One of our public liability claims lawyers 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 in a public place.
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.

How much compensation did other people get awarded for their injuries?
To help you understand more how much other people were awarded for their compensation claims, (who may have similar injuries to you) we pulled together some helpful, real life personal injury payout examples..
These include compensation for injury at work as well as car accident injuries, workplace injury and slips, trips and falls. You may have suffered an injury that means that you can’t return to work. We assess the type of injury that you have suffered and will look at current medical reports, the costs of your future medical treatment, along with important factors such as whether you are left with a total and permanent disability.
We operate with a no win no fee guarantee. This means there are no upfront costs for our legal services as you embark on your public liability claim.
When your case is settled, we will calculate your legal fees.
These are determined fairly and transparently and you are covered by Queensland law under the 50/50 rule.
In most cases, the at-fault party’s public liability insurer will pay your compensation. This is why councils and companies are legally required to have public liability insurance.
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
