Do you need spark plug injury advice because of an accident that was not your fault? Call Accident Advice Helpline and see how we can help.
Spark plugs are devices found in an engine that deliver an electric current from the ignition system to the combustion engine to ignite the fuel. Suffering from a spark plug injury can be very frightening and potentially serious. If you have suffered a spark plug injury that was not your fault then the free 24-hour helpline at Accident Advice Helpline can give you advice on how to claim the compensation you may be entitled to.
Possible spark plug injuries
Spark plugs deliver an electric current so a common spark plug injury is an electric shock. While the electric shock is usually mild, there are risks. Even a mild shock can cause the body to jolt increasing the risk of other sorts of accidents, such as a head injury caused by the head hitting another part of the machinery. If the spark plug was faulty then the electric current can increase leading to a much more serious shock which can affect the heart and brain. Burns from the spark or electricity are other possible spark plug injuries. Long-term consequences can vary, but any injury requiring long-term treatment may impact on your ability to work causing a loss of income; costs of treatment can also mount up.
What to do if you suffer a spark plug injury
The most important thing to do is to seek medical advice. A serious shock or burn requires urgent medical attention. If the accident was not your fault you may be able to claim compensation for costs arising from the accident. So keep receipts for any medical treatment or medicines that you have paid for. Try to remember as many details of the accident as you can and if possible get contact details for any witnesses. You may not feel like claiming compensation straight away, but claims can be made up to three years after you received the spark plug injury. If you do decide to claim compensation your solicitor will need as much information as possible about the accident, so recording the details while they are still fresh in your mind is a good idea.
Claiming compensation won’t make your injuries go away, but it will minimise the financial impact on your life. Also by drawing attention to the accident in this way you may encourage the negligent party to improve their safety standards and reduce the likelihood of anyone else suffering in a similar way.
