As a landowner it’s important to understand, and take into consideration, occupier’s liability. As an occupier of a home or land, you have a duty of care towards those who visit your property. Indeed, as a visitor, you may deserve compensation for injuries caused on someone else’s land that were not your fault.
At Wrigley Claydon, we were proud to recently win a case of occupier liability. Our client was badly injured on a broken sign positioned on the defendant’s land. Due to the positioning of the sign, the client sustained both head and facial injuries, which as well as causing them great pain also had potential to scar. We were passionate about this case, and ensured that justice was served. Our client received £1,000 and luckily the injury healed healthily within three weeks, leaving no scar.
We understand that care for those with injuries can be expensive, as well an emotional struggle for the victim and their family. While, of course, accidents happen, it is important to evaluate errors made and be aware of paying out for things which could have been avoided with due care and attention. By law, property owners have a duty of care towards those who visit their land, and accidents caused by the defective or dangerous condition of the premises should not be left to the victim to finance.
If you believe you are entitled to claim compensation, the first step is to hire an experienced lawyer. They will talk you through the best course of action and advise you on various ways of funding your claim. At Wrigley Claydon, we have over 30 years experience of helping clients receive the compensation they deserve following accidents where they have suffered personal injury or financial loss.
