Claiming compensation for an accident in a communal bathroom or kitchen

Living in communal housing can present a number of dangers, especially in the bathroom and kitchen as they both have a variety of hazards which can result in you becoming injured and if the correct precautions and actions aren’t in place it can be even worse. With a number of fairly dangerous implements and appliances lying around there is always the risk that something could go wrong, and as a result you could be left with substantial injuries. If you have suffered an injury that was through no fault of your own then you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation.

Where might I look to claim?

There are many areas where you could look to claim as a result of an injury in a communal bathroom or kitchen, with some common examples including:

·         Injuries caused by a kitchen knife set

·         Injuries sustained through an electrical fault

·         Injuries caused by a faulty electrical or gas appliance

·         Claims if you have been burnt or electrocuted

·         Injuries caused on an unsafe flooring surface.

Who could I potentially claim against?

There are a number of different people who you could potentially look to make a claim against in a situation like this, but the most likely people to blame would either be your landlord or perhaps one of your flatmates if you believe their actions have resulted in you becoming injured. You shouldn’t have to suffer in silence because of someone else’s mistake and by making a successful claim you could look to recoup any losses that you have incurred.
