Under NSW law, occupiers of premises have a legal duty to take reasonable care to ensure the safety of visitors and prevent foreseeable harm. Occupiers liability claims arise when a person suffers an injury or loss due to the negligence of an occupier in failing to maintain safe premises.Common examples of occupiers liability claims include:

  • Slips, trips, and falls on poorly maintained floors, stairs, or walkways.
  • Injuries caused by defective or hazardous conditions, such as broken handrails, inadequate lighting, or obstructions.
  • Accidents resulting from lack of proper signage or warnings about potential hazards.
  • Injuries sustained due to inadequate security measures, leading to criminal acts like assaults or robberies.

To establish an occupiers liability claim, the following elements must be proven:

  1. The defendant (occupier) owed the claimant a duty of care as a visitor to the premises.
  2. The defendant breached that duty of care through negligence, such as failing to maintain safe conditions or address known hazards.
  3. The claimant suffered an injury or loss directly caused by the defendant’s breach of duty.

Compensation in successful occupiers liability claims may cover:

  • General damages for pain and suffering
  • Past and future loss of income
  • Past and future medical expenses, rehabilitation costs, and care expenses
  • Out-of-pocket expenses related to the injury
