When it comes to private land injuries, here’s what you need to know:

Private commercial property owners must still follow the Health and Safety Act and maintain a safe environment for any visitors upon their land.

If an individual becomes injured on your private property, then it is the landowner who could find themselves in court facing charges.

A correct insurance policy, such as one that offers public liability, will compensate you if you’re sued for injury or damage to third party property.

Private land claim costs can include…

  • General damages: a payout for injuries, pain and suffering.
  • Special damages: out of pocket expenses such as not being able to work, vehicle repair, counselling, travel and childcare expenses.
  • Ongoing medical expenses and emergency treatment
