Do you live in a housing association property? It doesn’t matter whether it is a flat or a house, you have a right to expect the property to be safe to live in and to enjoy every day you are there. We don’t often hear about a negligent housing association, purely because it’s very unlikely anyone would be affected by negligence in this sense.
However, we do know that negligence is a possibility in all kinds of situations, and this could be one of them. If the housing association doesn’t adhere to its duty of care to provide properties that are safe, this could mean someone is injured in an accident that was entirely avoidable.
How much compensation could be received?
This will depend on the exact nature and facts involved in the case. Every case will be different; even if two people have much the same accident, the injuries they suffer are likely to vary, and the severity will vary as well.
Thus, there must be proof that negligence was to blame for whatever injuries you have incurred in such a situation. If this is the case, you can press ahead with a claim and hopefully reach the preferred solution. The amount you may receive in compensation will be decided as per guidelines on injuries, and in line with other similar cases.
