If someone has publically damaged your reputation or if you are being accused of having damaged someone else’s reputation, Brydens Lawyers can help you.
Defamation occurs when something is published, either in writing or verbally or by some other means of communication, and has the effect of or leads to the damaging of a person’s reputation. The defamation laws are designed to protect a person’s reputation.
ARE YOU ELIGIBLE TO MAKE A CLAIM?
For a defamation action to succeed there are three elements which must be established ultimately to the court’s satisfaction. They are:
1. The information was published by the proposed defendant.
2. The material which was published identifies the plaintiff and;
3. The material which was published and identifies the plaintiff is defamatory.
Any person or legal entity including local governments, companies and incorporated associations can be liable for defamation. It is also open to the person defamed to bring proceedings against those who contributed to the publication of the defamatory material which could include the original author of the material, the publisher, journalists, television and/or radio stations who also are complicit in the publication of the defamatory material.

There is a very strict time limit of one year from the publication of the defamatory material for the purpose of commencing proceedings.
