Regardless of whether you own or rent your home, it will be important for you to realise that any threat that could do a visitor to your property an injury in an accident could result in you being sued for accident at work compensation. Obviously, if you rent your property any threats that are your landlord’s responsibility will not be your problem.
It won’t matter if the person who was injured is a close friend or somebody you do not know. If you failed to make sure that a potential threat that could pose a risk of doing somebody an injury in an accident that was not their fault was put right, you could end up being left with a pretty hefty bill to pay.
Domestic property injuries and Watford accident at work compensation
Just imagine that you were the owner or a rather aggressive dog that did not take to strangers at all well. If you owned such an animal, it would be down to you to make sure that it would not pose a risk of injuring a visitor in an accident that was not their fault. Failure to do so could result in Watford accident at work compensation action, even if the injured party was not explicitly invited onto your property.
As such, any injury that your dog caused to workers such as bin men, postmen or electricity meter readers while they were calling at you house could well see you out of pocket. However, as mentioned above, threats in your home that could cause somebody an injury in an accident that was not their fault could also attract action from people you know.
If you were to have a few friends over at your property and one of them were to be injured by a faulty electrical appliance or a broken staircase, the injured party could seek compensation if they’ve been hurt at work in Watford.Open Claim Calculator
