    If you rent property, either for residential or business purposes, and are injured as a result of your landlord’s negligence, you may be able to launch a case with an injury lawyer in Petersfield case. You might, for example, fall down the stairs after tripping on a piece of loose carpet. You may receive an electric shock from a bare wire. You might even become ill after inhaling carbon monoxide from a faulty gas appliance. In all these cases and many more, you would be well within your rights to take action against the owner of the property you rent by using a 100% no win, no fee* injury lawyer in Petersfield.

    In most cases, any pay-out you were to win would come from your landlord’s public liability insurance, but it’s important to be aware that some corner-cutting landlords might not have invested in this. If this is the case with the owner of the property you rent, your landlord will have to meet the cost of your compensation himself.

    Collecting evidence for your injury lawyer in Petersfield

    Take a photo of anything in your rental property that has caused you an injury before contacting your landlord. If your landlord gets wind of your intention to use an injury lawyer in Petersfield to sue him, he may come round and rectify any problems as a means of destroying evidence. If you have tripped on a piece of loose carpet, photograph it. Do the same if you’ve received an electric shock from a section of bare wiring. If you’ve suffered carbon monoxide poisoning, which can be fatal, have a reading taken of the carbon dioxide levels in your property.

    You should also seek medical attention for any injuries you suffered. If you don’t, it’s likely that you’ll struggle to find an injury lawyer in Petersfield that will be willing to take your case on a no win, no fee* basis.

    How your tenancy will be affected

    Using an injury solicitor to take action against your landlord will have no bearing on your tenancy agreement, so he won’t be able to evict you, unless of course you have a break contract. As such, you’ll have no worries about being kicked out of your home if you do seek a pay-out. However, it’s possible your relationship with your landlord might deteriorate sharply if you do take action against him, perhaps making it unlikely that he’ll renew your tenancy.
