Occupier Liability Act Claims

Occupier Liability Act Claims Icon

Our experienced personal injury solicitors are able to offer advice and assistance in relation to Occupier Liability Act claims.

Occupier’s liability arises when an owner of private land or property such as a business, shop, restaurant, car park, hotel, or theatre, is liable for any injuries caused to somebody whilst on their property.

For a claim to succeed it needs to be proved that the occupier of the land or premises is at fault for the accident. In law The Occupier’s Liability Act 1957 and 1984 provides that the occupiers of premises owe a duty to take reasonable steps to ensure the safety of visitors to their land or premises.

If you have sustained an injury in a place where an occupier has failed to discharge their duty to you as a visitor, then it is important that you contact a solicitor for independent legal advice at the earliest opportunity.
