If you have been a victim of defamation, you may have a defamation case worth pursuing.
Your reputation also has ramifications for your social standing and how people or companies perceive you. If your reputation is tainted, depending on the extent of the damage, this can lead to a worsened quality of life and limited lifestyle options. People who would ordinarily deal with you before the damage occurred may no longer want to associate with you. If the damage is severe, it can even affect your family and those close to you.
Defamation occurs when something is communicated written, by words, photographs, radio, video, TV, internet, illustrations, magazines, emails, search engine results, text messages or other means, which has the effect or tendency of damaging the reputation of another.
The most common platform for defamation to arise is the internet including social media. All aspects of the social media and internet can be used to publish defamatory matter, including comments in social media, blog posts and more.
If you wish to make a defamation claim for reputational damages, the general rule in NSW is to submit a claim within 1 year of the event of defamation.
