Are you considering making a water damage accident claim because of an accident that was not your fault? Look no further. Accident Advice Helpline has specialised for many years in making personal injury claims so that people like you can get the compensation they are entitled to.
If a building suffers water damage it can cause a number of health and safety problems for the people that use it. The damp conditions form an ideal breeding ground for bacteria, pests and mould. Long-term exposure to these conditions can cause respiratory illnesses and allergic reactions. If you work in such a building your employer is failing in their responsibility to provide a safe workplace for its employees. If you rent the building your landlord is failing to provide a house fit for habitation.
If a building suffers severe water damage there could be a risk of structural damage and rotting floorboards. These could result in serious injuries such as broken bones, back and head injuries.
What should I do?
If you have suffered an illness or injury as a result of water damage you should consult a doctor. Medical documentation of your injuries is important evidence when making a personal injury claim. Record all the details of the accident and get the names and contact details of any witnesses. If it is possible, get photographic evidence of the water damage. When you feel ready, call Accident Advice Helpline about making a water damage accident claim.
Why should I do this?
Your accident or illness may cause financial repercussions for you as you may have had to pay for treatment and medicines, and there might be transport costs for attending medical appointments. And what will the financial impact be on you and your family if you are unable to work? At Accident Advice Helpline we believe that no one should suffer financial hardship for an accident or illness that was caused by the negligence of others.
When should I make the claim?
Ideally you should make your claim as soon as possible, but claims can be made up to three years after the accident. The sooner you start the claim process the sooner you will receive your compensation. At Accident Advice Helpline, we understand that your first priority is recovering and our solicitors are committed to making the process as easy as possible for you. They may hold consultations by phone so you do not need to travel and may be able to settle your claim without you appearing in court.
