    "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."

    Esther Rantzen

    Accident Lawyer in St Edmundsbury

    Do you ever worry about having an accident in the home and getting injured? If not, perhaps you should – because your home is the place in which you are most likely to have an accident.

    Surprising, but true

    If you think that your home is an entirely safe place where nothing untoward could ever occur, then you need to think again – because the statistics show otherwise.

    Figures from RoSPA state that in 2002, there were 2.7 million accidents in the home that led to a hospital visit. To give this some perspective, in 2012, there were under 200,000 injuries reported on Britain’s roads.

    An accident lawyer in St Edmundsbury will deal with claims for many road accidents every year – but they will also deal with plenty of claims for home accidents that led to injury.

    Why can you claim for a home accident?

    Of course, a lot of home accidents happen because of carelessness on the part of the person who gets injured – you might leave something on the floor and slip on it or trip over it.

    Obviously, that can’t be blamed on anyone else – it’s a different situation from a public place, where you might be able to claim through an accident lawyer in St Edmundsbury if something similar happened.

    But if it can be determined that you weren’t at fault for an accident in your home, you could be eligible to claim compensation. Suppose you had some building work done, and it wasn’t completed properly. Something might fall down, and land on you – with the result that you suffer injury. In such a case, you could call Accident Advice Helpline and speak to an advisor.

    Contacting an accident lawyer in St Edmundsbury

    When you call, an adviser will guide you through everything that’s involved in making a claim, so you’ll have an idea of what happens if an accident lawyer in St Edmundsbury takes on your case.

    If you’re eligible, the advisor will pass your details to our ‘no win, no fee’ legal team, and a solicitor will get to work on your case as soon as possible.

    What happens if you win

    If your case is successfully settled, you will be awarded a payment of compensation, which will consist of two elements:

    • One for the accident and injury itself
    • One for the reimbursement of expenses related to your accident
