Why make a claim?
If an elderly member of your family has recently been injured in a stairlift accident, you may be worried about how to fund their rehabilitation. Elderly people often need round-the-clock care and specialist treatment, which can be both costly and time-consuming. Depending on the extent of the injuries suffered, a family member may also need their home redesigned and new apparatus installed to make daily life manageable. If the accident was the fault of a third party then it should not be your responsibility to pay for those medical costs. A compensation package will ease any financial worries and could help you and your family to come to terms with an accident that has robbed a close relative of their independence.
Can I claim?
If you think you might be eligible for a no win no fee claim then we recommend that you call our free, 24-hour helpline today. The accident must have happened within the last three years and be the fault of a third party. For example, a company who installed the stairlift might not have made sure that it was installed safely and correctly. This negligence would entitle you to seek a compensation claim for the resulting injuries. Stairlift injury claims are usually made against the manufacturer of the product or the company who sold it to you and installed it.
You will need to prove that a third party was responsible for your injury so we recommend that you report it to the company or manufacturer shortly after the accident. You should also take photographs of the product and the location of the accident and find the receipts for the faulty stairlift. All of this evidence will help our expert lawyers to build a successful case and could lead to you securing up to a six-figure sum, depending on the circumstances. You can use our online compensation calculator straight away to see if your claim is valid by answering several short questions. This test will also give you an estimated figure for compensation.
If you require a more personal touch then call us from a land line on 0800 689 0500. Our advisors will answer a range of questions on the issue and offer personalised stairlift injury advice about the best course of action to take. There are no upfront costs to pay so you do not have to worry about funding a claim beforehand.
