Could you seek no win no fee* compensation in Gresford against your landlord?
If you live in rented accommodation then you may be able to make a no win no fee* compensation in Gresford claim against your landlord if you have been involved in an accident in your own home. This is because in situations where someone else has caused, or been responsible in some way, for your accident then you can seek compensation from them for the personal injuries you have sustained.
What sort of accidents can you claim for?
When it comes to having an accident in your own home there are many different ways you can be injured. Objects falling on your head because you have put them on top of your wardrobe might be just one example. However, in this situation it would not be possible to make a no win no fee* compensation in Gresford claim against your landlord. They would not have put the items there, and they did not force you to put them there. Even if there was nowhere else to put them because of lack of storage space on your home that still would not be your landlord’s fault.
However, if your wardrobe, which came with the home in a part furnished contract arrangement was faulty, perhaps one of the doors was loose and coming off its hinges, then you could make a no win no fee* compensation in Gresford claim against your landlord if it causes you injury. In such a situation you would need to have reported the issue to your landlord or managing agent to inform them that there was a problem.
Whoever is responsible for rectifying such problems should then come and fix the issue as quickly as possible (usually within 24 hours). If the problem is not fixed, or not fixed suitably, and you are injured as a result then you could be able to make a no win no fee* compensation in Gresford claim and the Accident Advice Helpline could help you to do so.
