TRIP SLIP LAWYER - OCCUPIERS LIABILITY CLAIM
Occupier's Liability cases involve injuries sustained on the property or premises of another person who may be the owner or tenant or have control of the property. These cases usually involve trips, slips and falls caused by a defect in the property such as an uneven stair case or a foreign substance on the floor which includes water, ice or snow. To establish liability a trip slip lawyer must show how long the defect or substance was there, how visible it was and how much notice the occupier had of the dangerous condition of the premises before the accident. The owners and occupiers of property are often insured against these risks particularly commercial property and to a lesser extent private homes.
Duty to Maintain Public Areas
There is a duty to maintain highways, roads, pavements and sidewalks to which the public have access and a claim for personal injury compensation for an accident may succeed if the dangerous condition was due to a failure of adequate inspection and proper maintenance.
Visitors to Private Premises
Liability may attach to the occupier, owner or person in control of private property which includes homes, gardens, hotels, shops and any privately owned land or building. The owner, occupier or person in control must take reasonable care for the health and safety of any visitor which can include people who are not specifically invited onto the property.
