Thousands of landlord negligence claims for injury compensation are made each year by injured tenants because they have been failed by their landlord. On many occasions, the landlords have been informed of defects which need repair and they have chosen to ignore the problem, often disregarding the fact that their actions have a direct impact on the people living in their property and paying their rent.

Common injuries resulting in landlord negligence claims include:
Torn, pulled and stretched ligaments, tendons and muscles as well as whiplash and severe bruising known as soft tissue damage, dislocations and broken bones are others regularly suffered due to landlord negligence. It is possible to claim against a landlord for all these injuries providing the injury has been diagnosed and entered on to your medical records.
Claims against landlords must be made within three years, most tenants who contact us to make a claim, do so soon after the accident.
It is important that the accident and injury has been reported to the landlord or local authority, this also means they can arrange repairs that are necessary.
