Public & Occupier’s Liability Claims, sometimes referred to as Slip, Trip or Fall claims

At Augustus Cullen Law, we have a long-standing history of representing individuals who have suffered injuries in public spaces across Ireland. We understand the importance of safety in public areas, and when that is compromised, we are here to ensure you receive the best possible advice.

What are public & occupier’s liability claims?

Public and occupier’s liability claims arise when an individual sustains injuries in a public space due to the negligence or oversight of the party responsible for maintaining that space.

These types of accidents can take many forms but include any type of accident which occurs on someone else’s property or land which is the owner’s fault rather than yours. If you have been injured in such a manner and it wasn’t your fault, you may be entitled to compensation.
