Occupiers Liability

Anyone who owns, or occupies, land or property has a responsibility to lawful visitors (and sometimes even to trespassers) to ensure their safety.

It is this duty that encourages property owners to insure against Public Liability claims.

Accidents which take place on property or land owned by somebody else are called Occupiers Liability Claims and are common.  Occupiers Liability claims often involve personal injury accidents which occur in buildings, on “premises” or on land which is not controlled by you or your employer.

If you have been injured on land or property due to a poorly maintained surface or poor lighting you may have a claim.
