Civil Liability Act

The Civil Liability Act (NSW) 2002 is the governing legislation for accidents that occur on public or private property. It outlines the entitlements for injury compensation. To make a claim, it is necessary to prove that the injury resulted from the negligence and breach of duty by the owner or occupier of the area where the accident took place.About Public Liability Claims

About Public Liability Claims

Generally public liability claims involve slips, trips or falls occurring on public or private property. For example, if you have slipped on liquid which had been left on the ground after a spill, or trip on a hidden hazard.

You may also be entitled to claim compensation if you have been injured whilst playing sport, attending school, dog attacks and injuries at rental properties.
