Accident at Home – Compensation for couple crushed by ceiling
Accident at Homes and Tenant and Landlord Compensation Claim can be avoided if the Landlord adheres to the terms of the rental agreement and the tenant puts the Landlord on notice about things which have or could go wrong
David Healey, a specialist serious injury Solicitor with Carter & Carter Solicitors, said about this accident at home:
“Our clients were in the kitchen of their Council owned property when the ceiling gave way and collapsed on to them. Understandably they were very shaken by this as well as being injured. They approached a number of Solicitors who were unwilling to take their case on for what they saw as poor prospects of winning but we spoke to them, agreed to act on their behalf and to pursue accident
Liability/Blame for an Accident at Home
“This case threw up a number of issues because the Council could only be held at fault for this accident at home and our clients’ injuries if we could prove they were on notice that there was a problem with the ceiling before it collapsed. Added to that there were a number of other potential Defendants who could also have been responsible for the claim.
We successfully argued with the Council that they were responsible for the collapsed ceiling and injuries and after a successful fight we secured compensation for both our clients.”
Conclusion re this Accident at Home
“Our clients had an accident at home as a result of avoidable issues which would have been picked up on had a system of inspection and maintenance been in place. Just because you speak to a Solicitor who won’t take your claim on, does not mean you cannot win. We specialise in difficult cases and Accident at Home claims which other Solicitors have struggled with and closed.”
