Are you unsure of how water damage to a building relates to personal injury claims? Many people are unaware of the dangers of water damage to their health. Damp buildings are the perfect breeding grounds for bacteria, pests and moulds. These can cause a variety of illnesses, but particularly respiratory illnesses and allergic reactions. If the water is from an unsanitary source such as a sewer the health implications can be even more severe.
The damage done to buildings can also increase the risk of physical injury. Rotting floorboards, beams or furniture can cause falls or increase the risk of part of the building collapsing. Injuries that might arise include sprained limbs, broken bones and serious head or back injury.
What should I do?
If you have been injured as a result of water damage, or you think living or working in a water damaged environment has caused your illness, you must seek medical advice. Medical records of your injury or illness can be used as evidence when making a personal injury claim. Take photographs of any visible signs of water damage such as mouldy walls or rotting wood. Get the names and contact details of any witnesses to your accident. When you feel ready, pick up the phone and call Accident Advice Helpline as you may be entitled to compensation.Open Claim Calculator
Why should I do this?
Employers have a legal responsibility to ensure that you work in a safe environment. Landlords have a responsibility to ensure that the houses they let out are fit to be lived in. All businesses, whatever their purpose, have a responsibility to the safety of the general public. If they fail in these responsibilities then you are entitled to compensation. You do not need to worry about the financial impact on them, as they will carry insurance for just this purpose. Your actions may also encourage them to review their health and safety procedures so that other people will not suffer as you have.
