A traumatic birth experience can have an immense impact on individuals and their families. In support of this, Brave Legal has formed a new partnership with Australasian Birth Trauma Association (ABTA).
If you are injured in a public place or premises owned or occupied by another person and your injury occurred because the place or premises were not safe or contained a hazard, you may be able to bring a claim against the insurer of that place or premises.
The types of possible claims include injuries resulting from:
Potential claims can seek compensation for pain and suffering; past and future lost wages; the value of the gratuitous care provided to you and the value of the care you were able to provide to others, but now cannot.
A public liability claim requires certain expertise, so it is important to get expert advice from specialist lawyers to ensure that you are properly compensated.Meet our Lawyers
Unlike an injury at work or on the road, being injured in a public place often means you do not have access to financial and medical support straight away. This is why you need to get legal advice early and be aware of time limits and what you may need to prove in order to get compensation.
When you are injured, it can be difficult to navigate your path to recovery and it can be tricky to know when or if you need a lawyer.
A personal injury lawyer can help you navigate the system and give you early advice ensuring that you understand the necessary steps to a successful claim and that you meet any deadlines that may apply to your claim.

I used Brave Legal for my personal injury case. Bree was absolutely amazing throughout the case setting me at ease to what was a pretty nerve racking ordeal. Bree is a true advocate for her clients with unwavering dedication, expertise and empathy. I can honestly say she dealt with me like she had known me for years. This was a long and complicated case but Bree and her team really did put me first throughout the whole process.Chris U.

Seven and a half years ago my life was changed irrevocably by an accident… It has been an incredibly difficult, emotionally challenging and soul-destroying time in my life, and something I would never wish on anyone. Bree, your gentle and professional advice that made me realise that it was not all my fault, and over the past few years working with you all I have rebuilt that part of my self-esteem and my diminished confidence. I am forever grateful for the huge amount of work and effort that was put in by you all as a team to affect aAlex B.
