You are required to establish that we caused the alleged loss and/or damage through some form of negligence. In any public liability claim, the burden of providing proof of negligence rests with you as the person seeking compensation. We cannot assist you in this.
Evidence and supporting documentation are required to evaluate your claim if this information is not provided it may delay your application.
One of the most effective ways to avoid confusion about the circumstances surrounding your claim is through the use of photographs. Council will use photographs to ensure we are investigating the correct location and/or issue. Only take photographs if it is safe to do so.
Your photographs need to show the following (as applicable). Other photos can be attached as relevant.
Personal injury examples:
Completion and acceptance of this form (including completion of the Authority for an Agent to Act, when completed) does not represent an admission of liability on the part of Wagga Wagga City Council and/or our insurers. Your claim for compensation will be subject to investigation and will be assessed on its own merits.
