Someone has damaged my property

How DAS Law can help you

Our experienced team of dispute resolution lawyers can provide you with practical legal advice and representation if someone has caused damage to your property.

These are some of the outcomes we can achieve for you:

  • An injunction to prevent the cause of the damage.
  • An order for the person that caused the damage must take steps to prevent damage in the future.
  • Obtain an order the person causing the damage pays you compensation.
  • Important things to consider

    Here are some important things you should be aware of regarding your legal problem. 

    • Let you’re the person know as soon as you are aware of the damage.
    • Encourage the person to report the problem to their insurer as they may have liability cover.
    • Keep receipts or obtain estimates to repair the damage.

    How much will it cost?

    If you would like DAS Law to help you with your legal dispute, there are a number of ways of funding your legal costs, including: 

    Legal Expenses Insurance (LEI)

    If you have a motor or home insurance policy this may include LEI cover.  If so, your legal costs may be covered by that policy, subject to its terms and conditions.  If you are unsure if your insurance policy includes LEI cover, we will check this with you.

    Personal funds

    If you do not have LEI cover, then we have a host of fee options which we will tailor to suit your needs.  Often we will take cases on a conditional fee basis (also known as “no win no fee”). 

    Where this is not suitable we offer fixed fees and discounted hourly rates.  For certain cases we will also consider a damages based agreement, where we receive a limited proportion of damages if the case is successful and nothing if it is not. 

    Our legal advisers are always happy to discuss our fee options with you in more detail.
