Public Liability




If you have been injured in a private or public setting, we understand it can disrupt your life and cause financial strain. At Margalit Injury Lawyers, we will act quickly to obtain compensation and get you back on track.

Common types of claims

  • Slips and trips in places such as supermarkets or on footpaths
  • Injuries suffered at a property, such as a rented home
  • Dog bites
  • Injuries caused by unsafe equipment or a defective product

It is also possible to seek compensation if you have been the victim of a violent or sexual assault.

What can you claim?

If you have a significant injury, it may be possible to obtain compensation for the pain suffered by you and your loss of enjoyment of life.

In assessing the value of your claim, the impact of the injury on your life will be important. For instance, you may be a talented musician but an injury to your hand may now prevent you from playing your instrument. An injury may also negatively impact upon your personal relationships. All these things are closely considered by us in assessing your claim.

If we can prove that your injury was caused by the negligence of another, it is possible to recover further compensation including:

1. Medical and other expenses

We can claim costs including doctors visits, pharmacy expenses, physiotherapy, counselling, dental and surgery costs. These cost are both those already incurred by you, and those reasonably expected to be incurred into the future.

2. Loss of income

If your ability to work has been impeded by your injury, past and future income may be claimed.

3. The cost of care

It is possible to claim the cost of care provided to you by loved ones. In addition to this, if you would have otherwise provided care to a dependent but for the injury, it is possible to claim the cost of care to the dependent.

Public liability claims require specialised skill and urgent action. Call us today, so that we can protect your interests and obtain the compensation you deserve.
