Personal injury arising from landlord neglect

Personal Injury


No tenant wants to suffer a personal injury in their home, however if you have suffered as a direct result of your landlord’s negligence then you may be entitled to some monetary compensation.


Your landlord has a responsibility to ensure the property is fir for purpose and safe to live in. The landlord is responsible for the maintenance of the following;


The structure of the building, including;


  • Ceilings
  • Doors
  • Roofs
  • Walls
  • Windows
  • The pipes and plumbing
  • The electrics and gas
  • The sewage and drainage
  • The common areas, which include
  • Staircases
  • Hallways
  • Entrances
  • Lifts

If you suffer an injury due to your landlord neglecting – intentionally or otherwise - their duties to keep the above safe and in order then you may be entitled to compensation through a personal injury claim.


An injury may be caused by tripping, falling or slipping on damaged parts of the property but it can also be a medical issue brought on as a result of other issues such as;


  • Asbestos
  • Damp
  • Faulty Electrics
  • Mould
  • Water damage
