Compensation benefits aren’t just for injuries suffered at work.
In fact, if you’ve suffered an injury or loss anywhere, you may be entitled to claim compensation if the owner of those premises was at fault for the incident.
While a slip and fall at the mall might just leave you red in the face, some injuries on public and private property have the potential to turn your life upside down.
That is where Nikolovski Lawyers can help.

How much am I entitled to?
The amount of compensation you may be entitled to depends on the nature and extent of your injuries. You may be entitled to receive compensation for:
– Pain and suffering
– Loss of wages
– Medical expenses
– The cost of help around the home
Don’t wait to claim
It is also important to know that there are time limits to make a claim.
Generally, legal proceedings must commence within three years of your date of injury, so please don’t hesitate in reaching out to us for help.
If it’s been more than three years since your injury, you should still get in touch.It’s less likely that your claim will be accepted, but time limits can be extended with good reason and the court’s approval. Your initial consultation is free, so whether you’re able to claim or not — it’s best to speak to a professional, make the decision together and get the right advice.
Public liability claims are run on a no win, no fee basis.*
