What is an occupier’s liability claim?

The law of occupier’s liability is the duty of care by an occupier of premises or land towards visitors on those premises, whether the visitor is invited or uninvited and who suffer injury during the course of their visit.

Occupier’s liability is that part of the law which sets the safety standards for households, companies, tenants and anyone else who is in control of a land or building so they should make sure that those premises are safe for anyone who enters onto the premises.

If you are injured whilst on the premises occupied by another and you sustain injury as a result of the negligence of the occupier, then you can make a claim under the occupier’s public liability insurance.
