What is occupiers liability?
The occupiers liability act of 1957 helps to protect people who are on private land who have sustained injury or damage due to the state of the property or land. So if you’ve suffered an injury that wasn’t your fault, you may be entitled to compensation.
If you are permitted to be at the premises and have suffered an injury because of a lack of care by the occupier then yes, you are covered by the occupiers act. Should the injury or damage have been avoided? Did the occupier demonstrate a lack of care for the premises making it unsafe for the visitor? These are the sorts of questions you need to ask yourself. If you feel any of these are a ‘yes’ then please give us a call today so we can get you the compensation you deserve.
