Although bad weather is often responsible for falling or cracked roof tiles, it is the property owner’s responsibility to ensure that their property is safe and secure. If tiles are left to rot or the property isn’t maintained, roof tiles can easily fall off or be swept off by the wind.This is, of course, extremely dangerous and could cause a serious accident. In addition to hitting a pedestrian, the tiles could also hit a moving vehicle which could cause a multiple car collision. Although roof tiles are relatively small, they are often made of very hard material. If they are falling at speed or they hit someone on the head, they could cause a very serious injury or even a fatality. If this should happen to you, compensation in Waverley could be on the cards.
