Personal Injury Lawyer Parramatta – Public Liability Claims
What is a Public Liability Claim?
This includes a claim for damages as a result of personal injuries sustained where you have been injured in a public place, due to the fault of another party. The fault of the other party may be as a result of failing to keep a reasonably safe environment free from slippery surfaces, spilled fluids or any other contaminant.
How long will the claim take?
This can be based on the injuries which are sustained by the victim in the public liability claim. Often, an injured person may take 6 – 12 months following surgery or longer for their injuries to have stabilised to the point where an independent specialist can determine future needs and whether there are prospects of an impact of future work capacity.
Most claims can take at least 18 months – 2 years to resolve after expert medical evidence is exchanged between the parties and genuine attempts made to resolve the claim.
