Lindsay Keller is an insurance attorney firm
Lindsay Keller is an insurance attorney firm, specialising in public liability cases in the South African market. As a dual role attorney firm, we have expertise that reaches a lot further than legal we cover the insurance aspect as well.
Public liability claims can occur in a number of ways. You could be an employer at a business and get injured by a freak accident or your computer and clothing are damaged by a burst water pipe – the list can continue.
Often clients aren’t sure if their incident is that of a public liability or not, so we do encourage you to chat to our team as soon as possible, so we can analyse the situation, and let you know if you have a case or not.
Most businesses should have a product liability insurance. This protects them from product liability claims brought on them by incidents that happen. These often occur at no fault of the business owner, and often through factory faults or manufacturing defects.
Public liability claims
Clients can claim in two ways when it comes to public liability: smaller and more regular claims that involve a small remuneration amount. This includes things like public walkways, potholes, construction sites, etc. these are often areas that have a regular incident rate on the public.
The second type of case is those that are more severe, and require a much bigger remuneration bracket. These can include faulty pipes causing a gas explosion, or drinking water that is contaminated. These cases may include a mass casualty and a large settlement may be in order.
For any public liability case, the client may be eligible to claim for:
- Past and future medical expenses
- Past and future loss of earnings
- General damages, pain and suffering
- Support loss, in the case of death
If you think you have a loss of support claim or have been involved in an incident that could be eligible as a public liability case, contact us as soon as possible, and we will engage with you in an appointment, to discuss your matter further.
