Injury lawyers in The Strand
If you rent your home, the private landlord, local authority or housing association to which you pay rent will have a responsibility to make sure that the fixtures and fittings of the property do not injure you in an accident that was not your fault. It’s the law.
If the person or organisation that manages your property fails to live up to this responsibility, you may have a personal injury case on your hands. If this is the case, you would be well advised to look into retaining the services of reputable 100% no win no fee injury lawyers in The Strand and sue for compensation.
Suing a landlord with the help of injury lawyers in The Strand
The list of incidents for which you may be able to sue your landlord with the assistance of injury lawyers in The Strand is nearly endless, but let’s consider a few of them. Your landlord must make sure that all of the appliances in your home are safe, no matter where in the house they may be.
Take your shower, for instance. If having just moved into your home you decided to take a quick shower only to find that halfway through your wash the cold water cut out, causing scorching hot water to seriously burn you, you may be able to retain the services of injury lawyers in The Strand in order to sue for compensation, if you can prove that the incident occurred as a result of your landlord’s irresponsible or negligent behaviour.
You may go to use an electrical appliance in your rental property, only to receive a nasty electric shock for your trouble. If the injuries you sustained were serious enough to require medical treatment, you may be able to launch as case for a payout. If your landlord has failed to get all the gas appliances in your property checked, as they are legally required to do, and you suffer carbon monoxide poisoning as a consequence, you could be due a compensation payout.
