The occupiers of all premises have a legal duty to ensure the safety and wellbeing of their visitors, whatever reason they are there for.
If you have an accident while visiting a department store, residential care home, shop, supermarket, office, garage, spa or gym for example, you may be able to claim against the occupier; that is the person who has control of the premises.
Accidents generally happen because the occupier has failed to provide a safe environment or take reasonable steps to prevent people from being injured.
Typical causes of injury include:
- Tripping over a hazard
- Slipping on a spillage or waste material
- Reduced visibility or insufficient lighting
- Badly secured signage or goods on display
- Faulty equipment, seating or furniture
