What is premises liability?
Simply put, premises liability is the liability that the landowner has for incidences that occur on the premises. If you are injured on someone else’s property due to some type of negligence, the premises liability law states that responsibility lies on the owner or occupier of the property.
Some examples of services we provide are:
If you think you have suffered one of these, you should take lawful action as you may be able to claim. Read the following sections for more detail, or call us now on 0161 200 2999 and we can help you break down the right process.
Occupier Liability and Slip-And-Fall Claims
Property owners and managers have a duty to exercise reasonable care to keep their premises clear of hazards that might injure a visitor with good cause to be there. People injured in shops, restaurants, pubs or other privately owned places may pursue an occupier liability claim. Council and highway authorities may be held similarly responsible for injuries caused by their failure to maintain sidewalks, roadways and other public spots. Stumbling on uneven surfaces and/or falling on slippery surfaces are common accidents.
Injuries to Tenants
Landlords have a duty to their tenants to properly maintain their rentals and promptly repair any defects on their property to prevent injury to tenants from fire and other hazards. A landlord may be liable to injured tenants for failing to take the proper measures to protect the tenants from harm.
Carbon Monoxide Poisoning
Health concerns are among the most serious of cases that we deal with, and if you have, or think you might have carbon monoxide poisoning, our expert personal injury solicitors will help you prosecute and receive what you deserve with the efficiency and care that such health concerns require.
Accidents in Public
It is not necessarily common knowledge that you can make a premises liability claim on injuries in public that weren’t your fault. Injuries suffered in supermarkets, DIY stores and even on beaches are just a few examples of the places you can follow up on. If you are unsure whether your situation could be valid for lawful action, don’t hesitate to contact us for a free consultation. We can explain everything you need to know about your injury, and what further action you can take.
Accidents when using heavy equipment or exercise machines are generally accepted as a necessary risk when attending a gym. However, not everyone is aware that these can sometimes be grounds for lawful action and compensation. If a piece of equipment is faulty or hasn’t been maintained properly, a wet floor has been left without proper signage, or you have hurt yourself on one of the countless other hazards that have been left lying around, contact us now. Our premises liability lawyers are ready to defend your rights to safe fitness and health.
