Occupiers Liability Claims & Tenants Liability Claims
If you have been injured due to an accident on another person’s property then you may be entitled to make occupiers liability claims. Accident Claim Solicitors are experts in dealing with occupiers liability claims where someone has been injured due to somebody else’s negligence on a property or premises they control.
The Occupiers Liability Act 1957 places a duty on the occupiers of premises to take reasonable care so that visitors will be reasonably safe in using the premises. The term ‘occupier’ means the person in control of the land, building, premises, shop, warehouse, car park etc. The ‘occupier’ might be a Local authority, a company or an individual.
Under the Occupiers Liability Act, the occupier of any building or land has to make sure that they do everything that is reasonably possible to prevent you from having an accident on their site. If they are found to be negligent in fulfilling this duty of care then they may be liable to pay you compensation under occupiers’ liability laws.
