It may not seem like it on the surface but even a small drip can cause an accident, and ultimately an injury. That injury may mean that you can make a Beddau no-win, no-fee* compensation claim.
For example, if you are in a public place and there is a leak, perhaps from the roof, ceiling or even some faulty plumbing then you may find that you slip over. This is especially true if the surface on which the water is dripping is tiled or smooth in some fashion.
While drips may be a nuisance and something that cannot necessarily be prevented, if you are in a public place then the owner, or whoever is responsible for the maintenance of the building, has a duty of care to ensure that it is safe for other people to use. This means making sure that all aspects are in perfect working order, and where they are not, that they are dealt with, repaired or suitable steps are taken to ensure that they do not pose a risk to anyone.
If those responsible fail to take these steps, and someone is injured as a result then it may be possible to make a Beddau ‘no win, no fee*’ compensation claim as a result.
In such situations, the solicitors at Accident Advice Helpline will review your Beddau no-win, no- fee* compensation claim and determine what led to the accident occurring. It may be that procedures were not followed which were designed to check the property for maintenance errors. It could be that an error was found but either not appropriately reported or dealt with. Perhaps the error was going to be fixed, but in the meantime no steps had been taken to highlight the dangers – for example, by placing a simple “caution” or warning sign to alert members of the public.
It is these steps, or the failures to take these steps, which will ultimately determine whether someone is liable, and if a Beddau no-win, no-fee* compensation claim can be made against them.
