If you have been injured as a result of an accident, we can assist you in pursuing a claim. If you are over 18, you have 3 years from the date the accident to bring a claim and if under 18 years of age, until the age of 21.

We offer you a free initial consultation and can act under a “No Win No Fee” Conditional Fee Agreement. We can also arrange home visits for those clients who are unable to attend our offices.

Accidents and injuries may occur in the home and may be as a result of defective boilers, faulty wiring, gas leaks and broken water pipes. Such accidents can result in significant injuries and are dangerous for tenants in rented accommodation. The responsibility would lie with the landlord(s) and they would be liable for any personal injuries as a result of such accident. The landlord may also be responsible for failing to maintain or undertake repairs.

The Landlord and Tenant Act 1985 provides that a landlord has an implied duty that a property will be ‘fit for human habitation’ at the start of the tenancy agreement and this will remain throughout the tenancy period.
