Occupiers Liability Lawyers
The “occupier” (or owner) of a property is supposed to ensure that their property is safe for people to use as intended. If they fail to keep the property safe for reasonable use and someone is injured because of that, the injured person can sue for damages under the Occupier’s Liability Act.
There are a number of things that can make a property unsafe, but some of the more common issues are slippery or wet floors, dangerous walkways, poor lighting, debris on the floors, ice or snow, exposed wiring, burns, malfunctioning equipment
Common places where Occupier’s Liability comes into play are:
- Private Homes
- Retail Stores
- Grocery Stores
- Apartment Buildings
- Community Centres
- Bars and Pubs
If you are injured while on another’s property due to it being unsafe, or due to the negligence of the property owner or their employees or agents, you could have a claim.
