PREMISES LIABILITY

Premises liability law covers a wide range of circumstances where you may have been injured, or where someone close to you has died, due to the negligent acts of a third party. If you have been hurt in a public place, such as a shopping centre, a park, or even on a footpath, through no fault of your own, then you may be able to make a public liability claim.

Public liability law means that an individual, business or organisation can be sued for negligent acts or omissions arising out of the condition of property under their control which result in the injury or death of a person or damage to their property. In general, to make a successful claim for negligence, you need to be able to prove that you were owed a ‘duty of care’, that the duty of care was breached, and that it could be predicted that this breach would lead to injury or damage.

Because premises liability is such a complicated area of law, it’s a good idea to find a lawyer who thoroughly understands its intricacies.
