Every year, a great number of people suffer injury due to being involved in an accident on private property through no fault of their own. Wake Smith has considerable experience in dealing with compensation claims for such accidents.
If you have had an accident on private property such as a house or piece of land that is privately owned by an individual, then you may be entitled to make a compensation claim, providing the accident was the fault of the land owner or occupier.
In addition, if you have been injured in an accident in a private property that is owned by a landlord, you might also be able to make a Defective Premises claim. Landlords owe a duty of care to anyone visiting or living in the property who may be affected by the condition of those premises.
Typically, accidents on private property may involve a falling accident or a slip or trip. Often people may only sustain relatively minor injuries but occasionally these accidents can lead to serious injury with life changing consequences resulting in permanent disability or long term pain.
It is particularly important to seek advice from a specialist lawyer experienced in claims involving accidents on private property and we can help with this. We will be happy to offer you initial advice on whether you may have a valid claim entirely without obligation, and we will assist you throughout the claims process if you decide to go ahead.
