I was a passenger in a car involved in a road traffic accident and suffered serious injuries to my right shoulder, my elbow and scarring to my forehead. I was unable to work for a long time. Jefferies Solicitors Ltd dealt with my case from the outset. I never expected that I would receive £21,191.00 of compensation for my injuries and other losses I had as a result of the accident. I am delighted with the outcome of my claim and would definitely recommend Jefferies Solicitors Ltd to anyone who wants to make an accident claim

Personal injury claims against a landlord can come about for a number of different reasons. If you have been injured as a tenant and can prove that the accident was the fault of your landlord you could have a valid claim.
There are many accidents in the home every year with millions of people needing to visit Accident and Emergency departments across the country. Shockingly, thousands of these accidents result in death.
Some of these incidents can happen to tenants who have had an accident in the house they rent from a landlord. Owners of property have a legal duty to ensure the houses they rent out are safe for their tenants. Another legal requirement is that they make sure there is valid house insurance on the property they own.
If you are wondering whether your circumstances are typical of those of an individual claiming against a landlord, have a look at some of the examples below. It is worth remembering, however, that no two cases are the same:
In all personal injury cases, it is important to prove that the blame was down to a third party and making a claim against a landlord is no different. You should always report your accident to your landlord as soon as you can and keep hold of medical receipts, including receipts for travel to appointments. These can help if you are hoping to recover medical expenses in your compensation claim. Also, if there is an opportunity, you should take photographs of the area where you had the accident, highlighting the dangers that were present.
Making a claim against your landlord can sometimes be complex and it is advisable to seek the help of a personal injury lawyer who knows their way around the legal system.
