Personal Injury & Public Liability
Tripped on an unsafe footpath ? Hit by falling debris from a construction site ? Been served a dodgy hot dog ? If you have been injured as a consequence of another party’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation. These claims can sometimes be complex, so you need to receive advice from experienced public liability lawyers. Strict time limits may apply, so contact Murdoch Clarke to learn about your rights to make a claim.
Making A Claim
Once you have told us about your claim we would normally contact the party at fault. Often settlements can be achieved without the necessity for Court proceedings. However, if a settlement cannot be achieved by negotiation then Murdoch Clarke has the team to push your matter through Court to either settlement or hearing.
What You Need To Do
If you are injured you should :
- try and obtain names of witnesses who can assist;
- take photographs of the accident site (such as an uncovered hole, dangerous footpath, etc);
- make a detailed note (a diagram would assist) of what happened.
All of this can prove crucial at a later stage and will help your lawyer progress your claim.
What Can You Claim
If you have been injured you may be able to claim compensation for :
- pain and suffering;
- medical expenses;
- loss of income.
