We have recently accepted such a claim involving a client who has been on the property since November 2010. She has complained to the landlord about a leak from the toilet, the landlord told her that he had already checked it and it was just condensation. The client disagreed with this and told him so. As a result she had to put a bucket in the kitchen to catch the water dripping from the ceiling above where the leaking toilet is located.
On the day of the accident the ceiling collapsed and hit the client on the neck, shoulders and upper back. She called the fire brigade and an ambulance.
In hospital she was diagnosed with soft tissue damage to her neck and shoulders and was prescribed painkillers.
The client later informed the landlord of the accident who is now repairing the ceiling.

If you have been injured in a rented property as a result of the council, a housing association or private landlord being negligent, then an accident in a rented property injury claim may be possible with the help of the Accident Advice Bureau.
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.
