Seeking legal guidance from an accredited specialist in personal injury law is essential to make successful claim and maximise your compensation entitlements.

The claims process with GMP Law starts with a free, no-obligation consultation to determine your eligibility and answer any questions you may have.

What compensation can I claim?

Public liability claim payouts can vary significantly and depend on the severity of your case. Compensation entitlements include:

  • Medical expenses related to the physical or psychological injury following the accident.
  • Ongoing costs such as domestic care required for a catastrophic injury like a spinal damage or amputation.
  • Non-economic (pain and suffering) damages for psychological or emotional distress.
  • Loss of earnings or superannuation if the incident leaves you unable to work.
Each state and territory has different ways of calculating public liability compensation. 

The amount you receive also depends on whether you settle with the insurance company or pursue it in court. While taking a defendant to court may yield a bigger payout, it can also be more expensive.

GMP Law’s expert public negligence lawyers will advise the best path forward to ensure you receive the maximum compensation, in the minimum time possible.
