PUBLIC LIABILITY CASES & SLIP, TRIP & FALL INCIDENTS
Public liability law covers a wide range of circumstances where one party is injured due to the alleged negligence of a separate party. The personal injury may have been sustained in a public place such as a shopping centre, in an amusement park, or on a public stairway or footpath. Hindsight Forensic Engineering provides a wide range of tailored consulting services to conduct a forensic engineering investigation of each specific case.

Public Liability Cases
Injuries can occur when a person’s natural inertia is subject to rapid or subtle change. For example, injuries can occur when a person transitions from being stationary to being in motion (such as a person standing on a moving tram which suddenly stops and strikes an object) or when they transition from being in motion to stopping (such as a person who breaks their neck diving into a shallow pool). The more rapid the transition, the more serious the injuries will likely be. Hindsight Forensic Engineering can evaluate the environment where an injury occurred in order to identify factors which likely contributed to the incident. In most cases, we make a comparison between the actual environment and an optimized environment which is designed in accordance with Australian and ISO Standards. Please call us now to find out more.
Slip, Trip, Mistep and Fall Cases
Although these may seem like simple events, slip, trip, and fall cases are often the most complex to determine causation. At Hindsight Forensic Engineering, we dissect all available forensic evidence in order to determine the most likely mechanism for a specific slip, trip, misstep, or fall event. Whether the incident occurred in a public place - such as a shopping centre, stairway, or car park - or on a council-regulated road or footpath, Hindsight Forensic Engineering can provide expert analysis required to document the incident site and determine the root causes of the incident. Please call Hindsight Forensic Engineering today for your free, no-obligation case review.
Amusement Park and Playground Cases
Although amusement parks and playgrounds can offer fun and entertainment, many of these sites are constructed rapidly or are not in compliance with required safety standards - which can result in serious injury. Hindsight Forensic Engineering can evaluate the most likely causes and possible mitigation measures for a particular incident. Whether the injury occurred at a trampoline park, a carnival, go-cart track, or a snow field, we have the experience required to deliver unbiased scientific analysis of a particular incident. Please take advantage of our free case review service and find out how we can assist you today.
