    How to claim boiler explosion compensation


    Boilers are responsible for heating our homes and providing us with hot water – and where would you be without your morning shower? Yet it’s vital that all boilers are serviced regularly and that you hold the appropriate gas safety certificates to ensure that your boiler is safe and won’t cause an accident. An exploding boiler, either at home or at your place of work, can cause damage not only to your home and your neighbour’s home, it can also leave you and your family seriously injured, or worse. If you’ve been the victim of a boiler explosion, you might be wondering who is at fault.

    Why not get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline’s advisors for confidential, no-obligation advice and answers to all your questions about boiler explosion compensation.

    Common boiler explosion injuries

    Thankfully, boiler explosions are rare, but when they do occur the consequences can be serious, even deadly. Usually a faulty boiler or one which has not been connected and serviced properly is at fault – the manufacturer could be held liable if your boiler is defective and has exploded, whilst if it has not been serviced properly, the gas engineer or company responsible for the servicing could be to blame. There have been cases where tenants in rental properties have been injured after their landlord has failed to have the boiler serviced regularly, and if this has happened to you, your landlord could be held liable and ordered to pay you boiler explosion compensation.

    An exploding boiler can cause structural collapse in your kitchen or the rest of your house, which could lead to broken bones, crush injuries, head injuries or burns from the fire. Carbon monoxide poisoning is also common after boiler explosions, and it’s not unheard of for people to be killed if their boiler explodes whilst they are asleep in bed. You can trust Accident Advice Helpline with your claim for compensation – our team of personal injury lawyers has years of experience and we provide a 100% no win, no fee** service.
