WHO CAN CLAIM?

Any person injured in a public place or private premises as a result of the negligence (faulty and/or carelessness) of an owner or occupier may be entitled to compensation.

  • Place of work other than your normal place of employment
  • On council property
  • At parks or playgrounds
  • On footpaths and roads
  • On private property
  • Schools
  • Supermarkets and shopping centres
  • While performing recreational activities
  • On boats
  • On aeroplanes
  • Being attacked by a dog

The Civil Liability Act (NSW) 2002 allows for the recovery of compensation by way of damages for:

  • non-economic loss (damages for injuries)
  • loss of wages (past and future)
  • loss of superannuation
  • medical expenses
  • domestic and/or personal care (both gratuitous and paid)
