Public Liability Lawyers – Claims & Compensation Advice

People sustain injuries in public every day but we don’t always know if we’re entitled to public liability compensation. The legal team at Dwyer Law Group are qualified in compensation claims and can explain the process for you. Public liability claims can occur when someone’s negligence or failure to meet their duty of care results in loss or damages. Our public liability lawyers will help you manage claims against private individuals or organisations, depending on your circumstances.

Based on the Gold Coast, the Dwyer Law Group works with clients throughout Brisbane and in surrounding Queensland suburbs.

Where Can Public Liability Occur?

Public liability claims can be made for accidents such as:

  • an accident on a playground or schoolyard
  • a failure to clean, repair or maintain a location
  • a slip and fall accident in a supermarket or retail outlet
  • a plane or boat accident
  • a dog attack
  • a slip and fall accident on public or private property

Anyone who caused or contributed to your loss or damage, as well as anyone who owned the property where the accident took place (if they can be proven to have failed in their care of the property) may be legally liable for the accident. If you’re unsure whether you have a public liability claim, contact our team for advice.

A professional public liability lawyer will talk you through your situation as well as compensation options. If your injury occurred in a workplace, we may refer you to our workers’ compensation services for tailored advice.

How We Can Help

Dwyer Law Group will provide a professional evaluation of your claim, examining every aspect of the incident to identify any liability on the property owner’s part. If our compensation lawyers can prove that there was a failure to uphold “duty of care,” you can be confident that we will help you towards a fair damages settlement.

Our public liability lawyers will guide you through each step of the compensation claim, beginning with an initial consultation, through to the court day and settlement of the public liability compensation.
