    A negligent kitchen fitter caused my personal injury

    A negligent kitchen fitter caused my personal injury

    Having a new kitchen fitted is an exciting time for the whole household – but it can also cause a lot of mess and chaos, which is why it is important to choose a qualified, experienced kitchen fitter, to minimise disruption. Kitchens are usually fitted to a high standard and you should be left feeling satisfied with the level of service you have received. However, if a negligent kitchen fitter has caused damage to your home or personal injury, you may be feeling frustrated, angry and upset. A kitchen fitter has a responsible job and if they are negligent this could lead to accidents such as the following occurring:

    • Injury caused by tools or sharp objects such as a slip/trip or lacerations
    • Injury from sharp corners due to poorly finished work
    • Collapsing kitchen counters or kitchen doors falling off their hinges and striking somebody

    If you have been unlucky enough to be injured due to a negligent kitchen fitter, you could claim compensation. It’s also a good idea to contact the company or kitchen fitter involved to make a complaint.

    Claiming compensation for injuries caused by a negligent kitchen fitter

    The amount of compensation you receive will normally take into account the severity of your injuries, any loss of earnings due to time off work and may also cover the cost of completing work on your kitchen to a suitable standard. There’s no need to feel concerned about making a claim; kitchen fitters are professionals who will be covered by liability insurance in the event of a customer making a claim for compensation. Working with a reputable personal injury lawyer can help to put your mind at ease; make sure you choose a firm that is accredited by the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers.
