occupiers liability solicitorThese claims cover accidents where you have been allowed to enter a building or land which is owned by someone else – this could be private land such as a home or garden or commercial property such as a hotel, restaurant or shop. If whilst in the building or on the land you are then injured due to something they have done (for example – left an obstacle in the way that you tripped over) or something they have not done (for example failing to put a handrail on the staircase), you could be entitled to make a claim.

Businesses are responsible for making sure these types of injuries do not happen. Establishments such as hotels and restaurants often have marble, tiled or wooden floors that are prone to becoming slippery, especially when customers are bringing water in on the soles of their shoes or food and drink is spilled. It is up to the business or landowner to ensure their premises are clean and safe, and that any hazardous surfaces are cleanly signposted to avoid accidents.

If you slip or fall on land or property owned by someone else due to an unsafe and un-signposted surface, then you are entitled to make an occupiers liability claim. Whether your slip and fall occurred on the property of a business, a public place such as in a bus or train station, or on an individual property, you could be entitled to compensation.

We recovered over £8000 for our client who was injured while playing on defective play equipment.

“Thank you to Vijay and his team, throughout the whole journey you have been so supportive and helpful, I cannot thank you enough”

Mrs Martin

“I would like to say a very big thank you to Vijay. The service you provided was excellent and at all times I always felt confident that you would get the result we wanted. Your approach to myself and the claim was done with kindness and understanding. I never once felt like just a file number, and your friendliness made the whole process so much easier. I would also like to thank you for the outcome of the claim, because without all your hard work it would not have been possible. I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone that finds themselves in the unfortunate position where they need to make a claim.”

Paul Gafner

“I had a claim for compensation. The case was lengthy (five years) and complicated. The case was handled throughout by Vijay whom I found to be efficient, courteous, co-operative and very supportive. His favourite saying was ‘hide behind me, I will look after you’ and he did. I feel Vijay did an excellent job and I would recommend Wrigley Claydon’s services to anyone.”

The case was quite complex and there were many twists along the way but I always felt that Vijay was in full control. This was proved in the successful outcome which was well beyond our expectations. His communication was first class, always clear, friendly and left me with no doubts about where we were. I felt that I was kept fully informed at all stages of the claim. I would have no hesitation in using your Company again or recommending Vijay to others in need of help.”
