Public Liability Claims

This type of claim covers any and all types of injury not covered under the road or workers compensation accident systems.

Examples include:

1. Slips, Trips, Stumbles and Falls in retail outlets and supermarkets
2. Playground accidents
3. Sporting activity accidents
4. Dog Bites
5. Accidents on Public Property
6. Boat accidents
7. Residential Accidents
8. Plane accidents
9. Schoolyard accidents
10. Bike accidents

The full compensation value of each claim will vary from case to case as will the strength of the case or prospects of success.

In all of these cases, it is necessary to show that the injury occurred as a result of a breach of duty of care, and this requires the assistance of dedicated legal experts. Once we commence a claim for you, we will ensure that your claim is finalised quickly for the best possible outcome and a very reasonable fee.

Strict time limits apply to lodging or commencing these claims and we would be delighted to provide you some initial advice at no obligation and at no cost as part of our free case assessment for all new clients.

Frequently Asked Questions

If you have been injured in any of the following circumstances due to a breach of duty of care or negligence:

  • Slips, Trips, Stumbles and Falls in retail outlets and supermarkets
  • Playground accidents
  • Sporting activity accidents
  • Dog Bites
  • Accidents on Public Property
  • Boat accidents
  • Residential Accidents
  • Plane accidents
  • Schoolyard accidents
  • Bike accidents

As long as your fall was caused by someone else’s negligence, yes. Examples include slipping on a substance on the floor of a shopping centre and injuries caused by defects in footpaths caused by recent roadworks. In fact any kind of injury caused not just by falls but by the negligence of others will attract compensation. Boating accidents, playground injuries, dog attacks and even negligent medical treatment all fall within this category. Each case requires a careful review by an expert lawyer to assess whether a claim can be made. VB lawyers will do this for you up front at no cost without any commitment required from you. If we think you can bring a claim we will make a proposal to you for you to consider.

If you are living in a rental property and the cause of your fall was a defect that the landlord is responsible for, yes. We have successfully brought many such claims in the past. Will my claim be covered by insurance? In the vast majority of cases there will be insurance to cover your claim. If in the rare instance there is no insurance to cover your claim we will consider the situation and advise you if it is worthwhile to continue the claim or not. If we advise you not to continue the claim any further there will be no cost to you whatsoever.

In the vast majority of cases there will be insurance to cover your claim. If in the rare instance there is no insurance to cover your claim we will consider the situation and advise you if it is worthwhile to continue the claim or not. If we advise you not to continue the claim any further there will be no cost to you whatsoever.

Not initially, and perhaps not at all. The claim is subject to a mandatory “pre-court” process that is designed to try and resolve claims before court proceedings are necessary. This process is commenced by delivering a claim form to the negligent or responsible party, followed by the provision of medical evidence in support of the claim and, once your injuries are stable enough, an assessment of damages and offer to settle. We will handle this entire process. Once that is completed the parties and their legal representatives are required to attend a settlement conference to see if an agreement can be reached. Only if that conference is unsuccessful in resolving the matter can a court claim be commenced. The commencement of a claim in court does not mean that the matter will proceed to a hearing infront of a judge. There may be many more opportunities to negotiate a settlement before that occurs. We will guide you through the court process and ensure your matter is resolved at the earliest opportunity.

Yes time limits apply. If we are retained to act for you we will ensure that all time limits are complied with by preparing and lodging any and all claim forms and making sure court proceedings are commenced and on time, but here is a brief summary of the relevant time limits: There is a 9 month time limit from the date of the accident to submit the “pre-court” Claim Form with the negligent or “at fault” party or 1 month from the date you engage a lawyer to act for you in the claim, whichever is the earlier. If you retain us, we will prepare and lodge the claim for you and at no obligation. In the event that you make a full recovery from your injuries within a few months of the accident and the claim is not economically viable to proceed with legal representation, we will not charge you anything for the professional time we have spent meeting with you, preparing and lodging the claim.

We provide this service to our clients to immediately remove any concerns or stress about seeking legal advice early and with respect to legal costs. We strongly recommend that you get early legal advice regarding your rights and to ensure that any and all claim forms are prepared accurately and lodged promptly and to provide a legal buffer between you and the insurer. The benefit of engaging an expert personal injury lawyer to look after you and your claim is that it immediately becomes the responsibility of your lawyer to take care of the time limits and to make sure the documents are lodged or filed on time. There is a three year time limit from the date of injury to commence court proceedings if you have suffered personal injuries from an accident. If court proceedings are not commenced within three years of the date of accident/injury, your right to commence or pursue a compensation claim or claim for damages will be lost forever. Commencing court proceedings is only ever necessary if we have been able to resolve or settle your claim at the initial settlement conference which is called the compulsory conference. Many cases but not all claims settle at the compulsory conference. We are even able to resolve some cases before the compulsory conference. Approximately 99% of all of the cases John and Greg have taken on over the past 45 years of combined legal practice has been able to be settled or resolved out of court or prior to trial. If you retain John, Greg & Sean from vbr Lawyers regarding your personal injury claim, the responsibility of lodging the claim on time and before the time limit expires immediately becomes our responsibility.

Assuming we can establish the other party owed you a duty of care and was negligent, and when all of your injuries have settled down and stabilised, we can seek and recover for you monetary compensation for the following:-

(a) Pain and Suffering;

(b) Loss of Wages or Income;

(c) Future Loss of Wages or Income;

(d) Past and Future Loss of Superannuation Benefits;

(e) Out of Pocket Expenses;

(f) Past and Future Medical Treatment Costs;

(g) In some cases, Past and Future domestic Care and Assistance;

(h) In some cases, a healthy contribution towards your legal costs which at vbr Lawyers will equate to at least 50% of your total legal bill being paid by the insurer.

Yes. Only a minority of the claims we make involve claims for people who have been forever prevented from working by accident related injuries. Most claims we make involve are for people who are still working, but with some problems. Valuable compensation is recoverable in that situation, on the basis that the capacity for work might not be the same as it once was. In any case the best thing to do is to notify the claim as soon as possible. If it turns out you are completely symptom free and the claim does not proceed, you will owe nothing to us or anyone else.

We strongly recommend that you seek legal advice and as soon as possible because the moment you have been injured in an accident, you have a potential claim. Your potential claim and the value of the claim will be determined by the law and legislation. Accordingly, you should get proper legal advice and we are happy to provide it to you and at no obligation. An expert in personal injury law will be able to promptly advise you of your rights, the claim process, what needs to be done and when and answer any and all questions you might have about your rights, how to run and win the case, advise on whether the case can be won and, if so, how long it might take to complete and the likely full value of the claim. In our experience people who are self represented achieve significantly inferior “in hand” outcomes even taking the payment of legal costs into account.

If the value of your claim is very small, we will advise you. If the value of the claim is so small that the legal costs would eat into or erode the value of the claim, we will advise you of this and as early as possible. If the value of your claim is moderately sized or if it is a significant claim, you also will be very pleasantly surprised and relieved about our fee structure and fee policy as compared with the larger firms. We guarantee it.

Based on our collective 45 year experience in running and resolving this type of claim it usually takes 6 to 18 months for your claim to resolve from the date of the accident. We will explain the likely legal fees upfront and from day one. We provide industry leading transparency regarding our fee structure and fee policy. No matter what happens or at what stage your case settles, the professional costs will not under any circumstances exceed 30% of the value of the claim.

Example: If your case settles for $100,000.00 clear of any and all statutory refunds and legal disbursements/expenses, we will not charge more than $30,000.00 for professional costs.

Even if we had incurred say $50,000.00 worth of professional costs to achieve the settlement and to win the case, your bill for our professional costs will not exceed $30,000.00. Using the same example, if we incurred only $15,000.00 worth of professional costs to achieve the settlement, you would of course be charged $15,000.00, not $30,000.00.

We are confident you will find our fees and charges to be extremely reasonable.

Yes. We offer our services to our clients on a “No Win – No Fee” basis. At vbr Lawyers, our No Win – No fee policy is this:-

(a) You will only ever pay legal fees for the work we do at the end of your claim and if and only if you win;

(b) We will fund and run the case for you and the legal costs will come out of your settlement monies which are paid by the insurer;

(c) In the very, very unlikely event that your claim goes to court and in the even more unlikely event that a trial is required and you lose, you would still pay us nothing but you are likely to be ordered by the court to pay the other side’s legal costs.

We could not be more impressed at the professionalism and genuine care from Greg, Ray, and the team at the Corinda office. Their outstanding knowledge and ability to clearly communicate throughout the entire case left us feeling confident and at ease in what was a difficult period. I would highly recommend their services to friends and family.
Jeanette Scarborough
Thankyou so much very happy with the outcome
Jordi Beltri
Where do i begin, I ended up with a lung disease and was recommended to contact VBR lawyers. From the first moment I met with Shaun and Zac I knew I was in good hands. They have exceeded my expectations of what a lawyer was and I can not recommend them enough!! The whole team worked together professionally to get the best outcome for me. They have the highest intentions for their clients and its not about how much money they put in their own pockets. They take time to explain everything to you and are always available when you have questions. I've been with them the last 2.5 years and they are nothing but the best!!
Lisa Dunjey
The team at VBR have been amazing !! They were recommended to us when we were looking for advice after my husbands silicosis diagnosis. It has been a hassle free process, they were professional and approachable and if it wasn't for them I don't know where we would be . HIGHLY RECOMMEND 🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩
Beau Seiffert
Greg and his team are exceptional. They took great care of me as their client and guided me through the process. Thank you so much for your hard work I wouldn’t recommend anyone else.
Cassidy Bond
Zach and the entire VBR team are more than exceptional! I was very lucky to have them on my side, they are friendly and professional. Highly recommend!!
Brendon McMahon
I can’t thank Greg and ray and their lovely staff for all the hard work and effort that went through for me thanks guys highly recommended
Tracey Magee
Having never had to use Compensation Lawyers before, I was unsure of what to expect. However Zach and his team made the whole process painless, and kept me informed every step of the way. I was very happy with the outcome, and would definitely recommend VBR Lawyers.
Kate Crewe
After having a car accident in 2020 and suffering from injuries after I was so unsure on the process for compensation (and pretty overwhelmed and terrified to be honest!) I saw an ad for VBR and thought I'd have a meeting to see how they were. That's when I met Beth and she was the perfect person to guide me through this. She was so calm and helpful throughout, not at all like the horror stories or scary lawyers on TV shows, I never once felt like I was just another number. I was constantly kept updated with things and felt so relaxed knowing I was being looked after. I honestly cannot recommend her enough.
VBR Lawyers absolutely changed my life. I was going through the most darkest time of my life due to a psychological injury caused by a government employer. I was not only treated terribly by my employers but even worse by Work cover QLD to the point where I questioned continuing to live or ending it all . When I had finally given up hope of any justice, Zack and Beth were there to support and encourage me to keep going. VBR are genuine people that care for their clients and will do the absolute best to help you. Beth De Laurence fought by my side and we won. She is a true warrior!
Chad Wheeler
Beth and her team at VBR could not have been more professional with my case. The communication and care with organising the process was above and beyond. I felt assured from the start that I was in good hands. Could not recommend VBR enough for there professionalism.
Graham Roughley
Many thanks to Sean Ryan and his dedicated team for all the hard work they put into my compensation claim. The outcome was very successful. No hesitation at all in recommending vbr Lawyers.
After a horrific workplace incident that nearly took my life walking into the VBR office at Burleigh Heads turned out to be an absolute godsend. Right from the get go Sean and Zac put me at ease and filled me with confidence to go forward and set things right. Over the course of my case, the mountains of legal jargon was condensed and put into plain English for me every step of the way. Zac was a real friend to me throughout the whole process with nothing left unexplained and no option left unexplored. With the matter put to bed now and coming away with an excellent result I cannot thank Zac, Desrae and the rest of the team at VBR enough. I'd give 10/5 stars here if I could. Thank you so much 🙏🏼
Deborah McEwen
I would like to thank Beth and the team at VBR lawyers, Burleigh for their hard work & professional advice, skills & just genuine care during my claim.. I can not speak highly enough of Beth, Desrae and the team for the care, guidance & support they showed throughout by always keeping me updated & making sure I knew what was happening & why. I would 100% recommend Beth & the team at VBR Lawyers Burleigh Heads as I couldn’t be happier with both the way I was treated like family, and my outcome ….. THANK YOU VBR LAWYERS …. 10+/10 Debbie McEwen
Steven Keen
VBR lawyers are unmatched and in their own league I was referred to VBR lawyers by a friend almost three years ago. Throughout the years of my claim I had numerous meetings, phone calls and emails. The team ensured I was informed every step of the way and that I understood all correspondence, they never hesitated to assist or spend the extra time where required. I predominantly engaged with Zach and Desiree who I can not speak highly enough of. Being diagnosed with silicosis was hard news to comprehend however having the support and guidance from both Zach and Desiree was vital to my well-being and made the legal aspect of my claim pain free. They made the effort to build a personal relationship ensuring I felt comfortable throughout the process. From the beginning to the end VBR lawyers consistently provided exemplary service. I would definitely recommend VBR Lawyers services.
Dan Boreham
Needing to make a serious compensation claim was one of the scariest things I could have imagined. At the time my only experience with lawyers was seeing them in TV shows or reading horror stories online, so naturally I was very anxious about the whole situation. I was very happy after calling and explaining my situation to be greeted by such a warm, down to earth and friendly team. These situations are terrifying and feeling comfortable with and supported by the people handling them is paramount to alleviating the stress that comes with it. Dealing with VBR has been nothing but a pleasure in an otherwise dire situation over the last few years and I couldn't be happier with not only the outcome, but how I was treated throughout. I couldn't thank these guys enough for that. 10/10
Milano Imai
After recently working with VBR Lawyers, I cannot recommend Beth highly enough. She was very professional, understanding and supportive throughout the whole process. Beth's caring and calming nature made what would usually be quite a stressful situation feel a lot more manageable and I am very thankful for the wonderful team they have there!
Louis Deck
Just want to give a big!! shout out to Sean, zack, Beth, Desrae and the hole Vbr team. The professionalism and dedication is second to none the guidance and support they show always keeping me updated and making sure i understood what was happening and genuinely caring about what i was going through. I definitely recommend the Vbr Lawyers team on the Gold Coast to be in your corner !!
Chloe Eastburn
Zach, Sean and the team have been fantastic in supporting us navigate such an overwhelming situation. They have been professional, empathetic and transparent with us through the entire process. Zach has communicated with us through every step and ensured we were always well informed. Hopefully we won’t need their services again, but Zach is the first person we would call if we found ourselves in another unfortunate situation.
Rick Turpin
I can’t speak highly enough of Zach and Desrae and the team at vbr they went above and beyond to get me the best outcome so professional and always communicating with me great service thanks again
Andrew Saunders
All the professionalism of a larger firm for simply less outlays. Beth is fantastic with a perfect balance of being down to earth while staying focussed with a professional approach and that goes for all the staff. VBR has a kind and caring approach and you certainly won't feel like a number but more part of a family.

Kendall Stewart
From the moment we stepped into their office, we were made to feel welcome. The consultation process put us at ease in what was a very stressful event we had to relive. They were sensitive and very professional in setting out what they needed from us to best support the process. They did all the leg work and were transparent from the outset. Highly recommend all of the staff at VBR.
Sheilann Crossingham
We couldn’t recommend VBR highly enough. They supported us through some of our toughest moments to date with empathy, skill, professionalism, integrity and genuine care. We felt confident in putting our trust in their abilities, experience and knowledge and were not disappointed.  The team are very approachable, dedicated, thorough, responsive, highly skilled and talented. Can’t thank VBR enough!
Neil Donaldson
John and the team at VBR did a fantastic job of finding the information from more than 50 years ago, which was required to prove my claim of brief employment by a company which no longer exists, which justified my claim for compensation for a mesothelioma diagnosis. I believed proving my 3 week school holiday employment in the early1970's was a lost cause, but VBR used their expertise to find the evidence required, to prove me wrong. My family and I will be forever indebted to John the team at VBR.
Aaron Norman
The team at VBR lawyers were amazing. I’d like to sincerely thank Zac, Desrae & Charlton for their professionalism and compassion throughout this process of obtaining my TPD insurance through my superannuation fund. This was not an easy undertaking for myself or VBR lawyers. However through diligence and a sound understanding of what was required, they were successful. They are not your run of the mill solicitors who are just chasing your money, they actually care about your well being. . I’d highly recommend their services to any person/s who require help with any claim to which they are entitled to. Thanks again guys for your help!!! Regards, Aaron

Communication was fantastic and Vbr lawyers produced an exceptional result for me. Very proficient and knowledgeable. Highly reccomended
Krissi Hamilton
We cannot recommend Sean and his team highly enough. We were referred to him and decided with trepidation, to accept his advice after a previous painful legal experience. We can only encourage you to entrust your compensation claim with him. At a time that is full of stress around medical issues, the last thing we needed was an added layer of legal stress. Sean, you delivered on your representations in full and in an amazing time frame. We were kept informed at every stage of the process and at all times felt that the decisions we made were based on advice based on our best interests. We cannot thank you enough
Brad Alexander
Greg, Emma and the team did a fantastic job, very professional & thorough. They were happy to explain each stage of the process and break down the jargon. I would highly recommend the team at VBR Lawyers.
Luke Buckley
I'm so glad I called VBR. I honestly thought all lawyers were thieves but their bill for the work they did over nearly 4 years was less than half what we expected it to be. In a time when you are vulnerable you need honest people by your side and that's what you'll get. I praise them for their honesty, professionalism, communication and thoroughness, they were genuinely fantastic. At all times I felt they had my interests at hand and not their back pocket. Can't recommend them highly enough!
Caroline Neves da costa
I can not recommend Beth and the rest of the team at VBR Lawyers enough. They showed authentic care for me and made me feel comfortable at all times.

Kate Barrell
If you need legal representation for any injury case, then absolutely go with VBR. Zach and Desiree took on my case (from a motor vehicle crash) after two other firms Turned me away. Right from the start they were supportive, professional and kept me informed every step of the way. They were able to settle the matter in a little over 12 months, and in the process obtaining a settlement well in excess of what was expected. The entire process was smooth, seamless and pretty much stress-free as they really did all of the hard yards. I can’t recommend these guys highly enough. If I ever needed any form of legal assistance in the future, I can unreservedly say that VBR would be my only choice. Thanks for everything.

"I cannot speak highly enough of the professionalism, personal service and friendly experience with VBR. Beth and the staff were absolutely amazing from the beginning to end and achieved a wonderful result . Having endured a terrible experience with a law firm in the past I was very cautious about seeking help again but could not have found a better law firm. I without hesitation recommend VBR for a motor vehicle claim". Thank you to all the team .
Kate Barrell
I can’t speak highly enough of Zach and the team at VBR. They took on my case after another law firm stuffed it up, and I had been turned away by other firms as a result. They were professional, caring and supportive throughout, keeping me up to date the entire journey. They achieved a result that far exceeded our expectations. These guys care about what is ‘right’. They put their heart and soul into it for me. Completely grateful to have them on my side. .I thoroughly recommend them.

samantha bailey
After several months of battling my insurance company I attempted to seek out legal advice to assist with a TPD claim that I was making zero progress with. It was incredibly stressful and I had no idea what I was doing. I began by contacting a few big named law firms that “specialised” in tpd claims. I was having so much trouble speaking to an actual lawyer (not a paralegal or junior) about the claim and getting someone to get the ball rolling. In addition to that when presented with their fees my stomach dropped! I couldn’t (and still can’t) believe how much they wanted to charge either in a fixed fee rate with their “no win no fee” structure or pay as you go. It was extremely upsetting. Then someone recommended Greg from VBR Lawyers. From the first conversation I had with Greg he started actioning my claim and met with me for a thorough discussion. He treated me like I was his number one priority from the beginning and that didn’t change through the whole process. Not 4 months later from our original discussion has my claim been successful thanks to Greg’s expertise, professionalism and efforts. I was also (pleasantly) surprised at his fees finding them MORE than reasonable and had my claim not been successful I wouldn’t have had to pay anything. The peace of mind that came with having someone so knowledgeable on my side that dealt with all the correspondence was incredibly relieving. Greg and his team are worth their weight in gold! I couldn’t recommend them highly enough! Thank you Greg - we are eternally grateful for what you’ve done for us.
