Occupiers’ Liability Compensation Claims

Hazards are all around us, in supermarkets, hotels, playgrounds, shops, on private property, or simply walking along the pavement. As specialist personal injury solicitors, we have over 30 years’ experience in occupiers’ liability claims.
If you have been injured whilst in someone else’s property, or on their land, call us today on 0800 612 7340 or fill in our online enquiry form, to see how we could help you with an occupiers’ liability claim.
Occupiers’ liability compensation claims are quite common. Defects to the property itself, or activity being carried out in the property can all lead to accidents happening. Stairs, for example, are a common cause of accidents in shops, businesses, restaurants and hotels etc.
All occupiers have a duty to ensure that their premises and land are safe. Negligence must be proved against the occupier for a compensation claim to succeed. Occupiers also have a duty to protect trespassers; therefore you may still be able to make a claim in certain circumstances where you did not have permission to be on the premises or land.
