Visitors are protected by law under the Occupiers Liability Acts of 1957 and 1984. The owner or ‘occupier’ of a building or land has a legal duty to take reasonable care for the safety of the people visiting.
Public and Occupier’s Liability Should Ensure Safety Procedures Are in Place
The occupier of any property should take care to ensure that all dangers are identified with correct warning signs put in place and regular checks carried out. There should be written records to show that the correct safety procedures are in place and that they are being actively followed on a day-to-day basis.
If you have suffered personal injury while on another’s premises as a result of an accident that wasn’t your fault then you may be entitled to compensation.
