Consider your next steps

The following outlines steps to take if you have suffered a public liability based injury and have already made a claim for compensation.

Public Liability Claims

Public Liability

Brand Barristers & Solicitors have conducted a number of claims for clients who have suffered injury in a public place, including injuries suffered in shopping centres, beauty salons, open spaces and dog attacks.

Public liability law is in place to protect you when you have suffered an injury or loss in a public place where a person or organisation has had a duty of care to prevent such harm.

The most likely events which give rise to a public liability claim include:

  • Slips, trips and falls (e.g. in shopping centres, aquatic centres, parks)
  • Dog attacks
  • Injuries sustained in the school yard
  • Boating, jet-ski and diving accidents
  • Balcony collapses
  • Sexual assaults


Where you have incurred injury or loss in these circumstances, you may be entitled to claim damages for pain and suffering, past and future medical expenses, past and future loss of earnings and travel expenses.

At Brand Barristers & Solicitors, you will work directly with a Senior Lawyer supported by an experienced team. We will guide you through the public liability claims process in a practical and supportive way, keeping you informed throughout the process.

We recommend you contact us as soon as possible following the event given time restrictions exist around making a claim. Your first consultation is obligation-free to assist you in determining if you have an eligible claim and appropriate next steps.
