How our Occupier's liability specialists can help

Occupier's liability frequently asked questions

  • Slips in supermarkets or nightclubs due to a spillage not being cleaned up;
  • Injury that is sustained due to someone failing to tidy up or make safe an area of a building;
  • Trips/falls as a result of badly fitted or damaged flooring;
  • Being struck by a falling object.
These types of claim are mainly governed by The Occupiers’ Liability Act 1957 and/or The Occupiers Liability Act 1984. These laws state that the occupier of a building must make sure that people are kept reasonably (not completely) safe when visiting the premises and, therefore, to succeed in an occupier’s liability compensation claim we must be able to prove that the owner or occupier of the building had not taken these reasonable steps. This can take many forms, some examples of which are:
  • A failure to have in place a reasonable system of inspection and cleaning;
  • Ensuring that their employees act in a safe manner whilst in the building;
  • Keeping the premises in a good state of repair;
  • Ensuring that there is no build-up of ice, snow or other debris in car parks.
