By far the best option, however, is to avoid a flooding related no win no fee* claim in the first place. Here are some common sense precautions to keep yourself and your family safe in a flooding situation and so avoid being involved in a flood related accident.
Avoiding a no win no fee* accident claim – safety precautions for flooding
- Flooding can occur from the sea and from rivers or from drains and occurs during periods of prolonged or heavy rainfall. At these times always put your safety and the safety of others before property and pets.
- Take some time to familiarise yourself with flood warnings and do this BEFORE a flood is likely to occur. If you are an employer or the manager of a property that members of the public visit remember that you have responsibilities for their safety.
- The first flood warning is Flood Watch. This means that low lying land and roads are expected to be flooded. You should listen to the local news and weather forecasts and be prepared to act quickly.
- The second flood warning is flood warning. This means that flooding of homes and businesses is expected and that you should act immediately. You should be prepared to evacuate immediately. You may need to turn off gas, electricity and water.
- The third flood warning is Severe Flood Warning. This means that there is extreme danger to life and property. Injuries and loss of life are possible. You should be ready to evacuate immediately. You should also avoid electrical sources and should not walk or drive through the flood water. The emergency services will direct you further about what you need to do so listen carefully to their directions.
- When the flood danger has passed an All Clear will be issued. However, it does NOT mean that it is safe for your employees or members of the public to return to a flooded properties. There could be electrical and sharp hazards in flooded properties as well as a risk of infection from sewage water.
