Slips, trips, falls and other accidents in public places such as shops and hotels and on the street can give rise to claims for damages at common law, where the accident is caused (at least in part) by the negligence of some other person or a corporate body (such as a business, club, or local council).
You may also claim damages where the injury occurred in a private home (including a rental property in which you live), if the premises are dangerous, or hazardous in some way that led to the injury. You may be entitled to compensation for:
- Pain & Suffering
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Past and future loss of income
- Loss of superannuation benefits
- The cost of medication, treatment, rehabilitation, travel, home help and associated expenses
- The cost of care provided by professionals and family
