Accidents on privately owned property

If you have been injured due to an accident on another person’s property and the injury is as a result of the negligence of the property owner or occupier then you may be entitled to make a compensation claim. The Occupiers Liability Act, 1995 places a duty on the occupiers of premises to take reasonable care so that visitors will be reasonably safe in using the premises. The occupier of any building or land has to make sure that they do everything that is reasonably possible to prevent you from having an accident on their property. If they are found to be negligent in fulfilling this duty of care and you have been injured as a result then they may be liable to pay you compensation.

The most common occupier liability claims we deal with relate to accidents in shops, supermarkets, hotels, pubs and nite clubs and car parks.
