Occupiers Liability

If a person suffers a personal injury while on the premises of another person, it is necessary to analyse the circumstances of the accident from the point of view of the law of negligence and also the Irish law on occupiers’ liability. This area of law is governed by the Occupiers Liability Act 1995. This act classifies persons as being entrants, recreational users, visitors or tresspassers. The occupier has varying duties of care to each of these class of persons.
