If I injure myself chasing a burglar onto his own property, can I sue him for damages?

Apparently if a burglar injures himself on my property, he can sue me. This has happened plentiful times over the last few yrs where the innocent householder get stung for not keeping HIS properety safe.

Now the boot is on the other foot, Can I sue the burglar? or will the law own the opinion that I shouldnt have chased him onto his property? Suddenly am I a potential attacker although i never lift a finger to the little sh1te?
Point to me to a single casing where this has in actuality happened without in attendance being "other" circumstances involved.

You have be reading the Daily Mail too much.
If you chase the burglar beyond the front door of your property, you are classed as having taken the law into your own hand, and any injury sustained is therefore your own fault.

The mode UK law works really does not help the target. If in doubt let them exit, but take pictures of them if able to do so.

A camera is recurrently the best deterrent, even if the individual is covering their face.

What really vexes me is why when a burglar, vehicle thief etc commits a crime, they are not treated as if they have taken the canon into their own hands, unlike so called vigilantes.
proberly not, you'll be sued for trespassing, knowing britian.
This is an urban myth. It would require VERY unusual conditions for a burglar to be able to sue for injuries. An get underway hole in the middle of th walk, for instance.

"This have happened many times over the ending few yrs where the innocent householder gets stung for not keeping HIS properety safe"

Can you find one single example?
You probably wouldn't know how to claim compensation from the burglar because he would probably have a string of previous convictions that would go contained by his defence. His lawyer would enjoy got him off weakly previously, so you as the original defender would be surrounded by the wrong and the case would favour the burglar once again regrettably. Very strange law but that's the way it seem to work in Britain.
