When you undertake DIY at home, you expect to experience the odd bump or graze, the common injury around the house associated with renovation.
That being said, when you live in rented accommodation and you suffer an injury around the house while it is being renovated by the landlord, or their contractors, you may wonder who is at fault for the domestic accident you have experienced.
Who is to blame for my injury around the house?
Every injury around the house is sustained due to individual incidents, responsibility for which can vary significantly.
Regardless of your injury, whether you tripped over work tools or fell down the stairs due to unfinished repairs, if you are not to blame for your accident at home, it could be that your landlord is liable for the harm you have suffered.
In the case that faulty tools or equipment have caused the household accident in question, liability for your injury around the house could lie with the manufacturer.
