Plaintiff receives $150,000 for falling on uneven surface

PUBLISHED 29 Oct 2019

Our client worked as a Traffic Controller. His duties involved patrolling, monitoring, permitting entry and inspecting a range of premises.

On the particular date of injury, our client was walking down a dark street at night when he fell over a uneven surface. As a result, our client suffered an injury to his right ankle. He experienced immediate pain as a result of his injuries.

We advised our client of a potential claim in Public Liability for the failure to provide a safe pathway which caused a serious injury resulting in an inability to work.

A claim for Public Liability was then commenced against the landlord of this premises. Our expert team here at Gerard Malouf & Partners offer a “no win, no fee” arrangement whereby our client does not have to pay any fee until there matter is successfully resolved.

We obtained expert evidence and prepared the claim in negligence against the owners of the premises. We subsequently participated in a Settlement Conference. The matter was then able to be successfully resolved by our solicitor and experienced barrister negotiating with the Defendant’s solicitors. Our client ultimately received over $150,000.00 in compensation.
