Public Liability

Leaving our home requires a certain level of trust in other people. However, whether intentional or not, sometimes someone else’s negligence can violate that trust and cause serious injuries.

As the trusted name in law, you can rely on D’Angelo Legal to ensure that you receive everything you’re entitled to. 

WHAT IS PUBLIC LIABILITY?

Owners/occupiers are expected by law to provide a certain level of care to the people they interact with in order to keep them safe. A common example is that a shopping centre is expected to place a ‘wet floor’ sign in an area that has just been mopped so that people don’t slip and get hurt.

Public Liability laws allow people to receive compensation when they have been injured due to someone else’s negligence.

WHO CAN CLAIM?

suffered injuries as a result of somebody's negligence at a public place or at a privately owned venue

If you have suffered injuries as a result of somebody's negligence at a public place or at a privately owned venue, in certain circumstances, you may be entitled to claim compensation against the property owner or occupier of the premises if they are negligent at law.

There are many elements to proving negligence, however, one of the most important tests is the ‘obvious danger’.

Currently Public Liability Claims in Western Australia are restricted by the Civil Liability Act 2002 (WA).

There are time limits and thresholds applicable in respect of Public Liability claims. For further information please contact us.
