    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Accident Lawyer in Sevenoaks

    Have you had an accident at home and need the services of an accident lawyer in Sevenoaks?

    Don’t be too surprised – every year, there are many accidents that happen in the home. You’re definitely not alone. In 2002, there were 2.7 million accidents in homes throughout Britain, requiring a trip to hospital because of injuries sustained.

    Not all of the accidents that happen can be claimed for. Many of these will happen because of something that couldn’t have been foreseen, or for which the blame lies with the person who got injured. Carelessness can lead to injury, after all.

    But if you’ve been injured through no fault of your own, an accident lawyer in Sevenoaks could help you – and all it takes to set the wheels in motion is one phone call to Accident Advice Helpline.

    Getting in touch with an accident lawyer in Sevenoaks

    When you call, you won’t speak to a personal injury lawyer – you will actually talk to an advisor, who has been fully trained to guide potential claimants through all the stages that happen when a claim is taken on.

    Call 0800 689 0500 from a landline, or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile – or text “claim365” to 88010 and someone will call you back.

    Your advisor will take your details and, if you’re eligible to claim, pass them on to a solicitor, who will work on a no win no fee basis. This is the start of the procedure proper.

    What happens next

    The solicitor will deal with agencies such as insurance companies on your behalf. It’s their aim to get you the best possible payout, and minimise stress and hassle for you. It’s likely that you won’t need to attend court – insurers usually prefer to settle out of court.

    If you win your case, you will receive a sum of money for the accident and injury, and for the reimbursement of expenses related to your accident. You will be able to recover without having so many financial worries.

    Staying safe in the home

    We know that your accident may not be your fault, but it never hurts to have a few pointers on how to avoid getting into an accident in future, does it? Here are a few tips that you may find useful, and they all relate to the living room – that’s where you’re most at risk of an accident.

    Put something non-slip under mats and rugs so that they stay in one place on the carpet or floor tiles

    • Make sure your chimney is cleaned on a regular basis, if it’s in use
    • Don’t overload plug sockets or extension leads
    • Make sure you’ve got the correct fuses (e.g. 1 amp, 13 amp) in your plugs
    • Keep electrical cables away from where people are walking – don’t run them across the floor
