Have you suffered an accident in East Lindsey whilst redecorating your house?
Although many people enjoy undertaking DIY projects, a significant number of homeowners opt to hire painters and decorators in order to renovate their homes. In addition to having specialist skills and tools, professional tradesmen and women are also likely to be able to get the work completed far more quickly than an average homeowner.
Whilst you may want to attempt relatively simple jobs such as wallpapering yourself, you may prefer to hire a specialist for more complex jobs, such as plastering a wall or fitting new fixtures in your home.
Although hiring professionals can mean that you avoid many problems, not every job runs smoothly, even when you use skilled tradespeople. Unfortunately, accidents can happen and you could find that an accident in East Lindsey occurs in your home whilst you’re trying to renovate it.
If you have hired specialists to conduct the work and they cause an accident in East Lindsey, they should be held responsible and you may be able to claim compensation from them. If the accident in East Lindsey causes damage to your property, your home insurance may cover the cost of this. For example, if a pot of paint was spilled and it ruined your carpet, your home insurers may pay out for the cost of a new carpet or new flooring materials.
Similarly, if the accident in East Lindsey causes someone to suffer an injury or illness, you may be able to claim compensation for the harm that you’ve suffered. As long as you can show that you weren’t responsible for the injury, it’s likely that you will be successful when it comes to making a claim.
If you decided to carry out the work yourself, you may still be able to make a claim for compensation if an accident in East Lindsey does arise. If, for example, you hire a tool to remove wallpaper from your walls but it malfunctions and causes you an injury, the manufacturers or the hire shop may be responsible and you could make a claim against them.
