If you are a tenant who is renting a property from a landlord then it is possible you could make a personal injury claim if you have suffered an injury in or around the property, through no fault of your own.
If you are not certain whether or not your claim would be valid then have a look below at some of the common kinds of personal injury claims made against landlords.
I’ve never been in an accident before. I was hesitant about making a claim but First Personal Injury sorted it all out and explained everything.

Whether you are living in a council house, renting from a letting agent or in a privately rented property then your landlord has a responsibility to ensure you are not harmed while you are residing there. All living areas within a rented property must be of a habitable standard and landlords must also make sure that communal areas are safe too. If they do not, then it could be possible that you have a valid personal injury claim.
Landlords have specific duties which they must carry out, these are stated in the Landlord and Tenant Act 1985. Landlords must make sure there are no broken windows and if there is, these must be replaced; rewiring and repairing brickwork are also obligations of the landlord as well we replacing burst pipes and getting rid of dry rot and damp.
If one of these problems has caused your injury then you could be able to make a personal injury claim if you can prove that your landlord has not carried out the necessary repair and maintenance work.
First Personal Injury lawyers can help you with your personal injury claim against a landlord and we can often do this on a no win no fee basis, meaning that if you lose your case there are no legal bills to pay. Once we have discussed your situation in detail we may be able to offer to work with you on a no win no fee basis (sometimes called a Conditional Fee Arrangement).
You have a legal right to live in a home which is free from danger and we will work hard on your behalf to bring you the maximum amount of compensation you are entitled to.
The amount of compensation you will receive for your compensation claim against a landlord will be determined mainly by the extent of the injuries you have endured. The more profound your injuries and the more impact they have had on your ability to work and enjoy life, then the larger the compensation amount is likely to be.
Your claim will also factor in any out of pocket expenses you have suffered e.g. medical expenses you have paid for in relation to your injury or travel expenses for making your way to medical appointments. If you have incurred any of these costs then ensure you keep all receipts.
