Occupiers Liability

Have you been involved in an accident occurring on property or land owned by someone else? If so, our personal injury lawyers can help you bring an occupier’s liability claim.

Our lawyers have specialist experience in dealing with these cases, whether you were a lawful visitor or a trespasser, we can help you. We can help guide you through making this claim against the occupier who has been negligent in ensuring you had access to a reasonably safe premises.

The Occupiers’ Liability Act 1957 states that occupiers of premises must take reasonable care to ensure that visitors will be reasonably safe when on the premises.

Whether you are a lawful visitor or trespasser, the law ensures that it is the responsibility of the occupier of the premises to ensure that it is safe. An example of this type of claim is where you have slipped on a dirty floor at a supermarket. You suffered an injury as a result of the fall. In this scenario, the law requires that the supermarket has a duty to ensure that there is a reasonable system to inspect the premises for potential hazards and an efficient method to deal with it.
