In 2022, an eight-year-old Australian girl fell from the diving board at a famous bar in Bali and suffered a fractured skull. The girl required two emergency surgeries to relieve swelling to her brain.
In a recent article published by News.com.au, the girl's father said that he believed the family's representative in Bali had not responded to requests for documents from the bar's insurer.
It is important to note that the family in this case is entitled to compensation under Indonesian law. This is because the accident occurred in Indonesia and the family was visiting from another country. Under Indonesian law, visitors are entitled to the same compensation as Indonesian citizens in the event of an accident.
This case is a reminder that engaging with the right lawyer is important when you have been involved in an accident in Bali. A good lawyer will be able to protect your rights and ensure that you receive the compensation you deserve immediately.
If you have been involved in an accident in Bali, speak to an experienced lawyer as soon as possible to advise you on your legal rights and options, and help you to get the compensation you are entitled to.
