    Plug socket accident claim


    If you have suffered a plug socket accident that was not your fault, then Accident Advice Helpline may be able to help you with your plug socket accident claim. Founded in 2000, we were established to help anyone who has been injured due to the negligence of others claim the compensation they are entitled to. Our expert solicitors are 100% no win, no fee’, so you have no upfront fees to pay.

    A faulty or overloaded plug socket can result in a variety of injuries. A serious electric shock can cause long-term or even permanent health problems involving the heart, brain and nervous system. It can also cause external and internal burns. Plug sockets are a common cause of fires, which can cause serious injuries such as burns and smoke inhalation.

    Claiming compensation

    Many people worry about making a personal injury claim. They may feel it is too much to think about while they are coming to terms with recovering from their injuries or coming to terms with the long-term issues. They worry that the process is too complicated. They may even feel guilty about suing the negligent party.

    However, at Accident Advice Helpline we are committed to making the claim process as easy as possible for you. Our trained advisers will deal sympathetically with your call and your case will be handled by one of our expert solicitors who specialise in your accident type. They will make the process as easy as possible for you, by holding consultations over the phone when possible so you don’t have to travel and may be able to settle the claim without you needing to appear in court.

    Claims can be made up to three years after your plug socket accident, so you can make the call within that time frame when you feel ready. Although the sooner you start the claim process, the sooner you will receive your compensation!

    In addition, don’t feel guilty about the financial impact on a negligent party. Compensation is usually claimed from their insurance. In addition, your claim may encourage them to review their plug socket safety procedures, making it less likely that someone else will suffer a similar injury.

    What to do

    Most importantly after a plug socket accident, seek immediate medical assistance. Medical records of your injuries can be used as evidence when making your plug socket accident claim. Keep receipts for any expenses you incur as a result of your injuries. As soon as you feel able, record all the details you remember of your plug socket accident and get the names and contact details of anyone who witnessed the accident.

    Accident Advice Helpline is open 24 hours a day and can be contacted on 0800 689 0500 or 0333 500 0993 from your mobile. An adviser will be able to tell you if you are eligible for compensation and how much you are likely to be able to claim.
