We have recently accepted such a case where an accident injured a tenant in a property which was rented through a private landlord. He moved into the property in early 2010, there is a flat above his which is owned by the same landlord. The landlord was having some work done on this flat when the workers left around 5pm. The workers had hit a water pipe that had become punctured when they left the property for the day, they were either unaware or did not care.
During the night the tenant got out of bed to go to the kitchen. As he got out of bed he went into the passage way when he slipped on water which was approximately 1 inch deep on the carpet. The water was approximately 5 meters in length and extended all the way into the kitchen. The water was due to the work in the flat above. As the tenant slipped backwards he hit his head on the radiator before landing on his back. He was soaked as a result of the water.
The wet floor was witnessed by his flat mates and the accident was reported to his landlord, the wet carpet has since been pulled up.
The private tenant went to see his doctor who diagnosed a neck and shoulder injury. He no longer lives in the rented property and he still suffers with aches to his neck and shoulders.
