Stairlift injuries can be devastating for elderly people, rendering them dependent on relatives for day-to-day care and costly medical needs. If mounting bills are becoming overwhelming and you feel that you may be forced to send your elderly relative to a care home, we may have a solution. Equally, if a member of your family is struggling to adapt after a serious injury, Accident Advice Helpline can fight for your cause. If the stairlift accident was the fault of a third party, you should make a claim and attempt to secure a monetary sum to cover any ongoing costs. If you or your relative is now wheelchair-bound as a result of the accident, you may have to redesign your home. You should not have to pay for this. Seeking compensation will enable you to obtain the best possible care and move forward with your lives while coming to terms with the trauma of the accident.
In order to build a successful case, our solicitors will need substantial evidence to support your claim. This includes any receipts for the stairlift and photographs of your home and where the accident took place. Should you wish to claim for medical costs and treatment, it is also beneficial to keep the receipts for these as well. We will make a claim against either the manufacturer or the installer of the product. For example, your accident may be due to the local council’s failure to install the stairlift correctly, and the council would thus be liable.
It is not just the elderly who suffer stairlift injuries and accidents. For example, you may have broken a bone or been crushed by a person while attempting to transport them at a hospital, or you may have been knocked over by a chair that was not switched off correctly. These are work accident claims and must be reported in your employer’s accident book. You may also want to notify the Heath and Safety Executive of more serious injuries. This information will form a key part of your compensation claim.
Our expert lawyers work on a no win, no fee basis so you will not have to pay a penny if your claim is unsuccessful. This is a particularly helpful arrangement since your finances are already likely to be strained during this stressful period.
