This section deals with accidents and injuries that occur on property - whether private or public. Private land includes private homes and gardens, cinemas and shopping centres. Public land is land owned by the Crown (that is, the Commonwealth or State Government or a statutory body) to which the public has access, such as public roads, parks and government offices.
The area of law about compensation for these accidents and injuries is mostly under the Civil Liability Act 1936 (SA) and is known as occupier's liability.
