Am I eligible to make a mobile home accident claim?
To be able to make a mobile home accident claim, your injury should have happened in the last three years, due to someone else’s actions or negligence. To start with, we need to help you establish exactly what happened to you. You may have been injured whilst in a mobile home, around the property at the time, or because you were helping to transport it.
If you were staying in the mobile home as a guest or paying customer, you could be able to base a compensation claim on a breach of health and safety regulations. After all, as a visitor, you have a right to expect your well being to be protected.
You may also have been injured because the mobile home was in an unsafe location. Mobile homes are often parked in relatively remote natural locations. This is the appeal of them for many people, but it can also make them relatively risky. If the mobile home or site owner parked the home on subsiding ground, for example, this could be very risky for anyone staying there. The home could also be subject to flooding or be covered in landslides. In each case, you could be able to start a mobile home accident claim for compensation.
Building your case
The basis of a strong, credible accident claim can include:
- Witness statements, supporting your memory of what happened.
- Evidence that you were in or near the mobile home at the time, such as receipts for your stay.
- CCTV footage showing what happened to you.
- Photos of the accident, or the nature of the causes.
- Your medical record, clearly describing the nature and extent of your injury.
You can start by making a list and writing down as much as you can remember. Try and recall who else was around you at the time, which can include strangers or people passing by. One of these people may have a perfect recollection of precisely what happened to you.
Why make a claim?
You owe it to yourself to make the best mobile home accident claim you can. A successful claim can help you financially and psychologically. If you are liable for accident-related expenses after your injury, a claim could help you meet your obligations. Psychologically, the knowledge that your accident has been recognised can be a boost to your long-term recovery.
