Christmas is a time for spending with loved ones, celebrating, eating good food and exchanging Christmas gifts. The last thing you expect as you’re carving the turkey is for somebody to be injured by one of their Christmas presents. Nobody wants to spend December 25th at Accident and Emergency, but unfortunately if you or a member of your family has been injured by a Christmas present, that’s what could happen. But at least you could make a claim for Christmas present injury compensation with Accident Advice Helpline. There’s a three-year time limit to make a personal injury claim, so don’t wait too long or you could miss out.
Christmas present injuries
You’re probably wondering what’s the worst that could happen when it comes to Christmas present injuries – you might be surprised as we’re going to tell you some of the types of accidents we have handled Christmas present injury compensation for:
- Burns or electric shock caused by an exploding appliance such as a faulty hair dryer, hair straighteners or even a kettle
- Lacerations from a faulty toy
- Eye or facial injuries caused by a faulty toy or kitchen appliance which explodes
- Injured by faulty zips on clothing or shoes
- Children injured by choking on small parts from a toy (which has been labelled for the wrong age)
It could be that you have suffered nasty burns after your new hair straighteners exploded and caught fire, or perhaps your child has suffered serious lacerations from a broken/faulty toy. Whatever has happened, somebody else is to blame for your injuries and you’re entitled to make a claim for personal injury compensation.
We don’t have the power to rewind time, but we can help you take positive steps to claim the compensation you’re entitled to if you have been injured by a Christmas present. Accident Advice Helpline’s team of personal injury lawyers work on a 100% no win, no fee* basis, so even if your bank balance is suffering after Christmas shopping, you can afford to make a claim with us. It might be that your injury has left you unable to return to work, or you could be left permanently scarred after sustaining serious burns.
We’ll take into account the impact your injuries will have on your future, as well as any loss of earnings you’ve suffered, when working out your personal injury settlement.
