Gert Nel Attorneys - We will validate your claim

Gert Nel Attorneys have a number of years in all legal fields. One area in particular which is covered by our legal experts, is public liability cases.

These cases are vastly included in a number of areas such as public transport areas, shopping malls, buildings, roads – basically anywhere that an individual has access to a public area which is protected by an owner. Any of these facilities or areas should by law have some kind of duty of care in place for incidents which could occur, whereby a person is injured and is entitled to make a personal injury claim.

Injuries for this kind of claim can include tripping, slipping, falling or being injured as a result of an injury either in a physical or emotional way. Clients can contact us should they not be sure if they have a public liability claim or not. We will take the incident into consideration and analyse it. We will be able to tell you if your incident would stand as a case or not.

To claim a case in the court of product liability, clients can claim compensation against the owner for:

  • Negligence of a public area/property which inflicted harm on a public person
  • Medical costs for any sustained injuries that may have needed medical care or surgery
  • Pain and suffering from emotional trauma
  • Loss of income compensation if the incident was so severe that the victim is no longer able to work and earn their usual income

Before we can come to any conclusion, a full investigation would need to be done to evaluate the extent of the damages, evaluate if the incident was, in fact, an accident, and if the client is worse off now financially than they were before the incident.

Give us a call, or drop us an email, to discuss your case further. Many of our clients come to us, with no idea how serious the incident actually was, and through their coming forward, have been able to save other clients from being injured by the same incident. Speak out now, and get the compensation you deserve.
