Solicitors for Injury Claims against Landlords, near you.
If you live in any form of rented accommodation and have suffered a personal injury, from a trip, fall, electric shock from a faulty electrical appliance, or cut from defective glass, it's all too easy to blame yourself for an accident that happened. But by law, your landlord or the authority responsible for your home should make sure your accommodation is properly maintained and safe for you and your family to live in.
If you live in any type of rented accommodation, including council accommodation, or a house owned by a private landlord, or even university, no matter what type of injury you've suffered, from minor cuts and bruises, to whiplash and more serious injuries, such as injuries to the head or brain, from falling downstairs, if it's stopped you from being able to go to work, socialise, drive, or carry on with everyday tasks, or even have aches and pains due to your injury, then it's likely you're entitled to compensation from your landlord.
Tenants in rented accommodation need to be protected from hazardous, injury-causing defects, and landlords cannot just rent out their property in any old state or condition- they are required by law to make sure that the property they are renting to you, meets certain basic standards of health and safety. In order to ensure that those in rented accommodation are kept as safe from personal injury as possible, the Government has drafted the Decent Homes Standard, which can be found here.
