You’ve most likely heard of personal injury claimants who have sought compensation from a negligent party after being injured in an accident that was not their fault while they were in a shop, visiting an office or on public land that a local authority was responsible for. You might not be aware that it might also be possible for a visitor who was injured on your property to take action against you if it could be proved that the incident in question came about as a result of your negligent or irresponsible behaviour.
That’s right, if a guest in your home was to come to any harm as a result of you failing to make sure that they were safe from harm, the injured party might well be able to retain the services of a top 100% no win no fee Southwark law firm with a view to pursuing you for a compensation pay-out.
Domestic incidents and Southwark law firm action
In most cases, liability cover provided by your home insurance would pay for any compensation you were ordered to shell out, but this obviously won’t be the case if you do not have any. Under these circumstances, you could well lose any assets you own if a top-class Southwark law firm was to win a case brought by a person who was injured on your premises.
This will be something to be aware of if you’re having people round while you’re renovating your property. A staircase without a light and a rail might be OK for you in the dark, but a guest could injure themselves whilst climbing or descending between floors if he or she was not familiar with the lay-out of your home.
You should also be careful if you’re having a children’s party and hire a bouncy castle. If a child were to be injured as a result of you failing to make sure that the bouncy castle was properly monitored at all times, the parents of any kid that was to be injured could seek a compensation payout from you.
