- Public liability (e.g. injury suffered in a public or government area)

The Civil Liability Act provides a specific regime for claiming compensation. In addition, you have 3 years to commence your claim from the date of injury. It is important to get advice in relation to your matter right away to ensure that you are able to pursue your claim and that you can get proper legal advice before proceedings must be issued.
