Defective Premises Compensation Claims
Have you have suffered an injury caused by a hazard in a poorly maintained or constructed building? You may be entitled to make a defective premises compensation claim.
You may be a visitor to a property or building or a tenant where the landlord or council has a responsibility to make sure it is safe and kept in good repair, and if so there are specific legal responsibilities on landlords in addition to the general responsibilities to make sure there are no hazards created by defects.
Common examples of defects in dwellings or property include, stairs and bannisters, flooring or even fixtures falling off the wall. A common claim is for asthma or chest infections due to damp in rented properties.
Tollers are experts in this field, and can provide clear, jargon-free advice on defective property claims, along with a no-obligation assessment of whether you have a reasonable chance of success. If you do, we can help on a ‘No Win No Fee’ basis.
A Defective Premises Claim could include:
- Injured by a sharp item protruding from a shelf or wall
- Lack of signage to warn about hazards
- Tripping over a raised floorboard, uneven flooring
