Occupier's Liability Claims on the IoW
Visit a shop, a restaurant or a leisure park. Go to a school, hospital or office or walk down a public path. All of these places are owned by another person – the occupier. That person has a duty to ensure the safety of visitors.
They should have procedures in place to identify all possible hazards and whether or not they need to take action to mitigate or remove the risks they pose. If the occupier fails to carry out this duty and you have an accident on the premises from which you suffer injury, you are entitled to make an occupier liability claim.
Your injury may be caused by hitting your head on a low ceiling; falling through a hole in the floor; tripping on a badly maintained path. If the premises were unsafe, the Glanvilles Damant Personal Injury Team will help you gain the compensation you are due.
Experience is essential
Occupiers' liability law has many grey areas so it is essential you gain help from experienced solicitors. Glanvilles Damant has many years’ experience of gaining occupiers' liability claim compensation for Island clients.
Our team of specialists are experts in both the Occupiers' Liability Acts of 1957 and 1984 - the former relating to the rights of people visiting a property with permission, the latter to the rights of non-visitors i.e. trespassers.
Whether or not you were supposed to be on the property, if you have an accident you may be entitled to injury compensation.
