Personal injury can occur in almost all facets of life, due often to the negligence or intentional actions of other people, companies or public institutions. Under the law of negligence, injured people are able to claim compensation for personal injury if shown that a duty of care owed to the injured person was breached through the other party’s act or omission. Plaintiffs can also claim for intentional actions resulting in harm such as battery, assault or false imprisonment.
Public liability claims can be made for injuries suffered due to public authorities or in public locations such as schools, playgrounds, sporting venues and parks, often due to insufficient safety procedures.
Civil claims can be made between individuals or between an individual and a business, for personal injuries caused by slips and falls, assaults, faulty products, dog bites and many other unique circumstances.

What Expert Evidence
Due to the extremely broad nature of actions and omissions which are able to result in personal injury, the range of experts required in general personal injury cases is similarly broad. Those with expertise in medicine, science or engineering are involved in many cases requiring expert opinion.
For some fields of expertise we have some sample sections of de-identified reports. Please contact our office if you are interested in a sample.
The overall cost of expert opinion depends on the services required. Some of the key factors that affect the cost of advice include:
- The need for a view or inspection of a location
- The quantity of documentary material to be reviewed
- Whether there are reports of other experts to be reviewed and commented on in detail
- Whether there is a need for conferences with the expert either in person or by telephone/Skype
