Occupiers’ Liability

Occupiers of commercial property accessed by the general public are constantly at risk of having actions commenced against them in the event that a member of the public were to be injured in any way while using their property.

The lawyers at Virgin Hickman have decades of experience in defending such claims.

They have acted on behalf of small local companies and large multinationals. We often handle claims involving slip and falls on both commercial premises, shopping malls, and in other retail and recreational areas.

Due to their excellent reputation in the personal injury bar, Virgin Hickman lawyers are well suited to investigating, handling and resolving such claims. While that will most often mean a negotiated settlement, Virgin Hickman has the necessary trial experience to litigate these claims right to the end (be that in front of a Judge alone, or a Judge and Jury).

Our lawyers have also taught and presented to property managers and others involved in the handling of commercial premises on the key issues arising in this area of law. That expertise can make claims resolve more quickly and cheaply than might otherwise be the case.
