Reigate and Banstead Claims


If you have a large paved area at the front of your house, it will be likely that you’ll be partial to employing the use of a pressure hose to give it a bit of a spruce up from time to time. As these types of areas can get very grubby, a traditional hose will typically not cut the mustard, so only a pressurised water delivery system will do.

However, it will be important for you to remember while hosing your front area that you will need to pay attention to exactly where any excess water is draining off to. If it makes its way onto any pavement or other public ground outside your home, it could pose a risk of doing a passerby an injury in an accident that was not their fault.

Under these circumstances, the injured party might well be able to take some form of action against you.

Pressure Hose Accidents Claims

It’s the middle of the winter and its cold outside. Not the sort of time of year most people would think of pressure hosing a patio area at the front of their house. There are few things you can stomach less than a grubby patio, so you decide to get your pressure hose out nonetheless to blast away the grime, not thinking for one moment that your actions could result in somebody suffering an injury in an accident that was not their fault and then being put in a position where they might be able to take some form of 100% no win no fee* action against you.

You crack on with the job in hand, completely oblivious to the fact that water is running off your patio onto the path at the front of your house. This quickly turns to ice, and not long after you’ve finished hosing down your patio, a passer-by slips and breaks his arm on a patch of ice that has formed from the water from your pressure washer.

If the injured party put two and two together and worked out how his misfortunate came about, there could well be a chance that he might retain the services of a claims solicitor with a view to suing you for compensation.

All he would have to do to get as much free personal injury advice as he needed would be to contact a decent law firm such as Accident Advice Helpline on one of the above numbers.
