Areas of Law / Insurance law

A postman allegedly had an accident on my property nearly two years ago. He says he tripped on the flagstones which form a small step up from my neighbour’s property. My 18-month-old child doesn’t find this a problem, but they say it isn’t “reasonably” safe. What is reasonable or unreasonable? I am not insured.

Now you are aware of a potential problem you should take measures to ensure there are no further accidents. Most people have occupiers’ liability cover under their house contents insurance, but if you are not insured you need legal advice urgently to see whether this claim against you has any chance of success. If the flagstone is raised by more than an inch you may have to compensate the postman.
