Public Liability Case Studies:
Our client was walking through the Pitt Street Mall when she tripped on a covering on a cable, left insitu by workers employed by the Sydney City Council.
Our client suffered a nasty orthopaedic injury from which she made a slow recovery.
Whilst liability was denied by the Sydney City Council the claim was settled for a significant sum at a settlement conference without court proceedings having to be commenced.
