Claiming Compensation for an Accident in a Private Location

If you have been injured in an accident in a private location, for example at someone’s home, which wasn’t your fault, you can make a claim for compensation.

When you make a claim against the owner of a private property, their insurance will oftencontact us cover the compensation award.

Likewise, if you were injured in a home which is owned by the local authority, for example a council house, and the accident was due to their negligence, you can make a claim against then for compensation.

Injuries are often caused by poor maintenance, for example of buildings or pathways, as well as things such as spillages.

We can pursue claims for any type of accident on a private property, including:

Our personal injury lawyers will assess your claim and find out who has liability for ensuring the safety of visitors to the property involved.

If we take on your claim we can pursue it on a ‘No win – No fee’ basis.

If you have any questions about making a claim for compensation, please contact us for more information.

What is No win – No fee?

Your solicitor may take your case on a ‘no win-no fee’ basis. With his type of agreement your solicitor assumes the risk of not winning the case. If you lose, your solicitor does not get paid and you will not be liable for any legal fees.
