Duty Of Care

Occupier Liability Laws

Pubs and club owners have a duty of care to protect their customers from injury and to keep them reasonably safe. The legal protection provided to customers in pubs, clubs and bars to protect them from slips and falls and other injuries is stated in The Occupier’s Liability Act 1957.

The Occupier Liability Act states the occupier must: “take such care as in all the circumstances of the case is reasonable to see that the visitor will be reasonably safe in using the premises for the purposes for which he is invited or permitted by the occupier to be there”.

If you have suffered injury due to the negligence of a bar, club or pub owner then you can seek compensation for your injuries. Compensation is your legal right. Do not suffer in silence. Call us today. 0333 577 9000.
