Do you need to contact Renfrew accident claim solicitors after being hit by falling roof tiles?
With winter approaching, the weather is likely to get much worse and this could result in an increase in the number of accidents and injuries which occur. Unfortunately, when storms occur, they can often cause damage to property. For example, people may find that trees are uprooted, fences knocked down or windows even smashed. One common occurrence when heavy rain and winds occurs is that roof tiles tend to be swept off roofs. This can be particularly dangerous as they could land on a person or vehicle and cause a serious injury.
If this type of incident does occur, there may be a chance that you could make a compensation claim with Renfrew accident claim solicitors. Although some people may term the incident an ‘act of God’ if it was caused by the weather, this isn’t always the case and you may still be able to make your claim with Renfrew accident claim solicitors. If, for example, the property owner was shown to have left the property in a state of disrepair and this caused the roof tiles to become loose, Renfrew accident claim solicitors may be able to help you to make a successful claim against them.
Of course, it is possible that you could be injured due to tiles falling off your own roof. If you have recently had work completely on your home and it doesn’t stand up to bad weather conditions, you may be able to argue that the work hasn’t been completely to an appropriate standard. If Renfrew accident claim solicitors can successfully prove this argument, you could be awarded compensation for any injuries which you’ve experienced as a result.
Remember – it isn’t just one person that can go on to make a claim with Renfrew accident claim solicitors. If more than one person was injured, you could all make a claim with Renfrew accident claim solicitors, providing you can prove that you weren’t responsible for the incident.
