Are you looking for an accident lawyer in Selby because you’ve had an accident in the home?
You’re probably feeling a mixture of things right now: pain, of course, and maybe a little frustration because of the changes you’ve had to make in your everyday life. But you could also be feeling a bit of embarrassment. After all, who gets injured in their home?
More people than you might think…
Every year, an accident lawyer in Selby is almost guaranteed to deal with many claims for accidents that have happened in the home and led to injury. It may surprise you to learn that, in 2002, there were 2.7 million accidents at home causing injury and requiring hospital treatment.
All claims that we take on at Accident Advice Helpline must be for injuries that have arisen because of someone else’s actions or negligence. Not all home-based accidents will mean that the injured person can make a claim.
But if you qualify to claim, you should seriously consider going ahead with one, and to do that, you need to call Accident Advice Helpline.
Contacting an accident lawyer in Selby
To get started, it’s easy – we have a 24/7 hotline and options for both landline and mobile users:
- Dial 0800 689 0500 from a landline
- Dial 0333 500 0993 from a mobile
- Text “claim365” to 88010 (and someone will call you back)
When you call, your first point of contact will be one of our advisors. They are professional and friendly, so you’re always guaranteed excellent service.
If you’re eligible to claim compensation, your details will be given to an accident lawyer in Selby on our legal team, and they will get to work straight away. If you win your case, you will receive a payout.
What kinds of accidents qualify?
As mentioned above, anything that someone else causes, and which leads to injury. For example, what if you have new tiles put in your bathroom, and you get injured because a tile falls down while you’re in the bath? The job was not completed to a reasonable standard, so you could claim against the firm you hired to do the job.
How you can improve your safety
Not all accidents will be like this, though – and it’s always good to keep the risk of an accident happening to a minimum. Here are some bathroom safety tips:
When running a bath, run cold water first to cut the risk of scalding
- Don’t put soap in the water – you might slip when you get in
- Put a non-slip mat in the bath
- Don’t use any electrical equipment (e.g. a hairdryer) near the bath or shower
- Fit handles to the wall if you think you need them – they will help you get out of the bath
