Bushfire claims

We represented a local government authority on instructions from its insurer in respect of nervous shock and physical injury claims by victims of a suburban bushfire. Allegations of negligence were made against the local government authority concerning its failure to control and manage fire fuel loads in suburban bush land. We advised the insurer and the local government authority with respect to the legal responsibility of other participants including State government departments and bushfire authorities.
