In May 2015 my friend's neighbour fitted a new steel railings at the front of her house. The railings were welded up by her father, so owner of property has vicarious liability.
The railings form the boundary between her property and the pavement and there was no barrier sheilding the public from the flash of the welding arc or the metal fragments from the grinder used to tidy up the welds.
well, you guessed it, my eyes were caught by the welding flash and suffered retinal burns in both eyes and pitting to both eyes from the metal fragments .Very painful. Attended A&E, got treatment and antibiotic for the infection from the metal fragments.
Cleared up within a week.
The paintwork and windsreen of my car was also showered with hot metal fragments. Sorted out the paintwork myself, but the windscreen is covered in tiny pits. Noticable and distracting when driving into the sun.
Written LBA to owner of property but no response. Told owner at the time, response was to go forth and multiply.
Time to sort this out before three years is up. Medical report of examination obtained from A&E visit in 2015.
Prob is, I'm in N.Ireland and defendent is in England. Need a little advice on N1 claim form.
Do you need to include full POC with N1 or a brief outline with full details and evidence included at Allocation stage?
