Experienced claim solicitors in Tyne and Wear
Millions of people throughout the UK are either members of the National Trust or spend their weekends at properties and areas owned and operated by them.
British heritage properties offer a unique opportunity to witness life in a bygone era and to see some of the architecture and buildings which made Britain a force to be reckoned with.
Whether these properties are owned by an organisation such as the National Trust, or by a private family, the owner has an obligation to any person visiting the property to keep them safe. Should they fail in this obligation the person who has sustained injuries as a result has the right to make a claim for compensation which they can do by contacting experienced claim solicitors in Tyne and Wear.
Among the most popular historical buildings to visit are stately homes. These are either still in good condition or have been restored to their former glory and offer viewers a captivating idea of what life might have been like back when they were occupied by the nobility and gentry of historical England.
In addition to the homes themselves, there are often gardens, out buildings and land to walk through as well as lakes and water features.
Every home is different and as unique as the family who occupied it originally. However what they have in common is the obligation of their owners to the general public. Although the vast majority of these houses and land are safe and fit for visitors, it also has to be accepted that many buildings have been standing for some considerable time and with that comes a risk. It is the obligation of the owner to ensure the safety of visitors and should they fail then the owner may be held liable by experienced claim solicitors in Tyne and Wear.
Consider if you were walking along a corridor which had been opened to the public and declared as being safe for this purpose. You have an expectation that you will be safe as you do so, and therefore a hazard such as falling masonry could not only take you by surprise but could also cause you a significant injury. Therefore, you would have the right to make a claim for compensation through experienced claim solicitors in Tyne and Wear.
A fall on an undisclosed hazard, a head injury from something falling onto you or an injury from walking on an unsafe footpath could cause significant and serious injuries. If these were caused by circumstances beyond your control, it is the opinion of experienced claim solicitors in Tyne and Wear that you should not suffer unnecessarily.
