Public Liability

Expert commercial and regulatory advice.


Managing long-tail public liability claims

The McCabes Public Liability group is one of the largest in Australia. We work with insurers, brokers, underwriters and Third Party Administrators to manage long-tail public liability claims which include both factually and legally complex, multi-party, large quantum, litigated and non-litigated claims as well as volume frequency claims arising out of personal injury and property damage.

Our focus in managing long-tail claims is on early and accurate reserves and early resolution. Our team prides itself on managing claims proactively, whether it is high volume, low complexity claims or complex multi-party litigation. We recognise that each matter requires a different approach. Our lawyers use their knowledge and experience to work with our clients and develop a unique strategy to deliver commercially beneficial solutions for each claim.

We have also built strong rapport and respect with the major plaintiff law firms in each state to understand the drivers of each firm, how they manage their claims, and their strengths and weaknesses, which allows us to build a tailored resolution strategy.

Our success with our clients is recognised through being named in the Doyle’s Guide since 2012 as a Leading Public & Product Liability Law Firm.
