    The market town of Tonbridge in Kent was recently badly affected by the winter flooding. The River Medway rose rapidly and burst its banks entering homes and businesses. Floods are not just inconvenient and damaging to property – they can also be very dangerous. Lawyers working for no win no fee on Tonbridge cases may have to become involved if people have been injured in flooding accidents and incidents that were not their own fault.

This legal firm has over ten years of experience in helping people with flooding claims – they have certainly earned their endorsement by TV consumer affairs guru Esther Rantzen. There are some basic dos and don’ts that can help to keep you safe during a flood in Tonbridge and that may even prevent anyone having to hunt for a lawyer who works for ‘no win, no fee’ on Tonbridge cases.

    Lawyers working for ‘no win, no fee’ on Tonbridge cases – flooding Dos and Don’ts

    • Don’t enter flowing water that is over 6 inches in depth – this depth of water can be strong enough to sweep an adult’s feet from underneath them. Children and the elderly are even more likely to be knocked over.
    • Don’t forget that flood water is rarely clear – it is usually murky and brown and therefore it is almost impossible to assess how deep it is. That makes it unsafe to walk through!
    • Do remember that two feet of water is enough to float a family car – do you really want to drive through it?
    • Don’t assume that the floor is even under flood water – manhole covers may have been lifted and potholes and drains will be hidden.
    • Don’t walk on river defences – water levels can rise very rapidly and defences have been known to give way.
    • Don’t forget that flooding can bring additional hazards like power lines coming down and fallen trees
    • Do not let children play in floodwater
    • Do wash your hands thoroughly after being in and around flood water – it will contain raw sewage and harmful bacteria
    • Do remember that employers have a duty to protect the health and safety of their employees during a flood.
    • Do not forget that if you are in control of a public area you are responsible for checking that it is safe after a flood. This is the best way to avoid having to deal with a lawyer who works for ‘no win, no fee’ on Tonbridge cases because someone has been injured in an incident that was not their fault.
