Any person who owes you a duty of care, and breaches that duty, causing you foreseeable loss, may be liable in for negligence. Given the strict time frames associated with negligence claims, we strongly recommend you seek advice as soon as you become aware of any rights arising from your loss or injury. Negligence claims most commonly arise where someone fails to act with the skill, care and diligence that would reasonably be expected of someone performing a particular task.
Defamation occurs when a person intentionally causes false allegations to be published concerning a person or persons. Allegations may be published in writing or by spoken words. In order to be successful in a claim, it will be necessary to show that he defamatory comments harmed another’s reputation and decreased the respect, regard, or confidence in which they are held. If all the elements of defamation are met, and no valid defence exists, then a defamed party may be entitled to compensation for the damage caused to their reputation. Before commencing an action for defamation, it is necessary to consider whether the publisher has a valid defence for publishing the defamatory material, such as it being in the public interest to do so.
