Public liability

What is public liability?

People and organisations that are responsible for commercial and private premises owe a duty of care to make sure they are safe for guests. They must take reasonable steps to ensure the property is properly maintained and compliant with required legal standards.

If you are injured on public or private premises as a result of negligence you may be entitled to compensation.

The team at MEJ can guide you through the public liability claim process.

The claim process

Public liability claims have very strict time limits for lodgement. You must act quickly and seek legal advice or your right to claim damages may be lost.

Public liability claims require expert and specialist advice.

MEJ can help simplify the process for you and help you achieve the proper compensation you deserve.
