Principles of Contributory Negligence

October 18th, 2017|

Often in compensation claims, whilst a defendant or an insurer might accept they were primarily to blame for the accident/a person’s injuries, they will often also argue that a person contributed to the accident and/or that some act or omission on their part has made their injuries worse.

Unsafe and Defective Products

October 11th, 2017|

As consumers, we trust that the products we buy are going to be safe. In fact, whether or not a product will be safe to use, is a consideration that most consumers give little to no thought. This stems from the high standards of product safety that we have come to expect here in Australia. When purchasing a product, particularly if it is Australian made, we expect that the safety standards are maintained and even exceeded. The truth is, that no matter how careful and thorough manufacturers are, defects and safety issues still arise. With this in mind, some Australians are unfortunate enough to suffer some considerable injuries and losses as a result of products being defective and unsafe for the purpose for which they were bought.
