Occupiers’ Liability

Hardwicke is recognized as a leading personal injury set in The Legal 500, and many of our personal injury practitioners have achieved individual recognition in the principal legal directories. We have extensive experience in relation to all claims concerning the liability of occupiers for the condition of their premises.

Our barristers represent Claimants and Defendants across the full range of occupiers’ liability claims including those brought under the Occupiers’ Liability Acts 1957 & 1984, the Defective Premises Act 1972 and at common law. We advise regularly in relation to all levels of claim, including those resulting in fatality or serious injury.  We are experienced in a wide range of premises including retail, commercial, industrial and recreational premises, vessels, vehicles and residential property. Members of the team have particular expertise in claims arising out of accidents on construction sites. Please refer to the public liability and employers’ liability sections of this website for further information.

In addition to assisting with the substantive and procedural aspects of occupiers’ liability litigation, our barristers can offer advice on coverage and policy interpretation issues in this area.
