What are public liability claims and 'PIPA claims'?
Accidents or injury resulting from the wrongful or negligent act or omission of another party, not falling within the province of motor vehicle or work accidents, are usually referred to as “public liability claims” or “PIPA claims”.
This is because these types of claims are governed by the provisions of the Personal Injury Proceedings Act 2002 (also known as “PIPA”) in Queensland.
To pursue your public liability or PIPA claim and ensure it is protected, you must comply with the procedural provisions as stipulated in PIPA.
We ensure you get the best hospital care and rehabilitation
The Personal Injury Lawyers have a team of accident injury lawyers who specialise in PIPA claims and can guide you through the legal processes involved in such claims.
Our expert legal assistance ensures your fall injury claim is protected and that you receive the compensation and damages you deserve under such legislation and at Common Law. We also ensure you get the best hospital care and rehabilitation.
Servicing all of Queensland from our Brisbane and Gold Coast offices, the PIPA experts at The Personal Injury Lawyers are on hand to discuss your case and provide you with guidance and information.

Frequently asked questions about slip/trip & fall compensation claims
Injuries affect everyone in different ways. A minor injury to one person may impact upon another person to a much greater extent so compensation claim amounts for injuries vary on a case by case basis.
The purpose of compensation is to compensate an injured party for the loss and damage they have suffered and are likely to suffer in the future, as a consequence of the injury.This covers things like past and future medical expenses, rehabilitation costs and lost earnings due to the claimants injuries.
The more the injury or injuries impact upon your pre-accident lifestyle and employment, the more compensation you will receive.
Because of the subjective nature of compensation and damages payments for personal injury claims under Queensland law, it is not possible to state a specific compensation for a certain injury although you can estimate the basics with our compensation calculator.
If your injury occurred on your way to or from work, during the course of your work or during a work break, you are most likely entitled to claim workers’ compensation benefits (or Workcover Statutory Benefits as they are also known), whilst you are recovering.
Your accident may have been as simple as hurting yourself as a pedestrian while avoiding being hit in a forklift, motor vehicle accident or even a truck accident. This type of slip and fall accident is common on large mining sites. Alternatively, you may have been simply injured in a slip in wet conditions. If your injury is work-related, then you need to speak to our specialist slip and fall lawyers.
For more information on what such benefits mean to you, click on the term workers’ compensation benefits or contact us as a personal injury law firm for more information.
Navigating the provisions of the Civil Liability Act 2003 can be quite complex. It is therefore important to obtain legal advice in respect to what compensation entitlements you may have under such legislation and, most importantly, whether your claim is one in fact governed by, and therefore restricted by, the Civil Liability Act.
The Personal Injury Lawyers are able to provide you with this advice.
The process of the law works both for you if injured but also for others on your property. So if you are a homeowner, and you have a worker in your home who is hurt, e.g. a gardener, you may be liable to cover their injury.
