            Casualty & Personal Injury

            DWF (Australia)’s casualty and personal injury team is comprised of some of Australia’s leading personal injury lawyers. They are leaders who take responsibility for achieving the best possible outcomes in the earliest possible timeframes and who are backed up by emerging lawyers, administrative assistants and the support of our interstate and international colleagues.

            We have significant experience in Australia defending a range of claims, including, but not limited to:

            • Public Liability (e.g. slips/trips and fall, claims against Councils, public parks, skate parks, beaches)
            • Occupiers Liability (e.g. private homeowner claims, universities, shops, swimming pools)
            • Workers Compensation (e.g. employer’s duty of care, host employers)
            • Medical Malpractice (e.g. public and private hospitals, other health services)
            • Transport related claims (e.g. aircraft, public transport, car accidents, water-craft)
            • Sports and Recreation claims (e.g. concerts, parachuting)
            • Assault and Battery (e.g. nightclubs, pubs, sports)
