When you’re at home, you probably spend most of your time awake in the living room. This is where you listen to music, have conversations with friends and family, read books, and watch television – it may also be where you eat some of your meals, perhaps on a tray while you’re doing something else.
We don’t want to alarm you, but did you know that the living room is probably the most dangerous place in your home? Most accidents that happen in the home occur in the living room. Just ask any accident lawyer in Sheffield – they deal with countless claims for home-based accidents every year, and many happen in the lounge.
How can you claim for an accident in your living room?
You may consider it strange that a claim through an accident lawyer in Sheffield could even be made for an accident that happens at home, in your living room – even if it does lead to injury. After all, who else could have caused it? Surely you’re responsible – it’s your house, after all!
That may be true in many cases, but it is still possible to have an accident that leads to injury in your own front room.
What can you do to reduce your risk of injury?
There’s always something you can do to make sure you’re doing your bit to keep accident-free in your living room, such as:
- Making sure you put non-slip backing or pads under rugs and mats
- Not overloading plug sockets and extension leads
- Ensuring all plugs on appliances have the correct fuses
- Putting up a fireguard if there are any children around
