Occupiers' Liability Claims

This is an area which often accounts for a significant number of claims against Local Authorities, Housing Associations, Universities, Colleges and other public bodies who are responsible for open spaces, housing and property with public access. Our team works with clients to provide early advice to identify whether claims should be defended at Trial or settled quickly. 
We have a proven track record of successfully defending such claims at Trial. We also provide clients with advice on practices and procedures in claims where settlement is suggested.As an area which has seen an increase in fraudulent claims, our team works closely with their insurer clients to identify any likely fraudulent claims as quickly as possible. This allows appropriate further investigations, pleadings and evidence to be marshalled.
