Occupiers’ liability is when an owner of a private property or a piece of land, such as a business, a school, a gym, a shop or a restaurant is legally responsible for any injury that a person suffers whilst on their land as a result of the owners’ negligence. An occupier of premises owes a duty to their lawful visitors to take reasonable care to ensure that they will be reasonably safe when using the premises.
