Accidents at home
If you have been injured in an accident in your home, you may be entitled to make a claim for compensation. Speak to our injury solicitor in Shoreham-by-Sea today to find out more. Accidents can occur in the home in a variety of different ways. You could be injured by falling down the stairs, or you could slip on your driveway as you put the bins out.
While these accidents are unfortunate, and may well lead to a wide variety of potentially serious accidents, an injury solicitor in Shoreham-by-Sea will probably not be able to help you make a claim for compensation. This will be because in these instances there is a good chance that the accident was either just that, an unfortunate event that happened, or was your fault. For example, you may have fallen down the stairs because you didn’t turn the light on and could not see where you were going, or you might have slipped on the driveway because it was icy and you had failed to put grit down despite advice.
How an accident injury solicitor in Shoreham-by-Sea can help
That is of course not to say that an injury solicitor in Shoreham-by-Sea cannot help you if you have been injured in the home. If you have been involved in an accident within your home (or indeed, someone else’s home), then contact our injury solicitor in Shoreham-by-Sea today to see if they can help you.
They will need to know that the accident was caused by someone else, as the person who is regarded as being responsible (and therefore liable) for the accident will be the person against whom you will be making the claim.
One area in which an accident within the home might not be your fault is if you are having work carried out on your property. If you have builders or workmen in the property, there is a potential for them to leave power tools lying around. Logic says they will not do this, but people are only human and sometimes mistakes are made. If you trip over one of these tools when it should not have been left lying around, then you might be able to make a claim against either the workman themselves or the company for which they work.
