Talk to an accident solicitor in Immingham about your accident at home
Many people believe – wrongly – that accidents at home do not qualify for personal injury claims. While that is undoubtedly true for the vast majority of home accidents, in certain circumstances accident victims can make a claim. If you sustained injuries in an accident that occurred in the Immingham area within the last 3 years and someone or something else was responsible for that accident, you are entitled to claim compensation.

What accidents in the home might qualify?
The emphasis is that the accident must have been caused by somebody or something else other than you. For example:
- If you bought an electrical device and followed all instructions to the letter, but the thing blows up in your face, then the manufacturer of that device is to blame and must pay compensation for your injuries.
- If you bought cleaning materials that, according to their label, where safe for you to use without wearing protective clothing but which actually burned your skin and caused you considerable pain, you can claim for compensation.
- If you purchased a rowing machine or weight-lifting equipment for your home gym and the instructions to use the equipment were completely inadequate and you got hurt as a result, you may have a valid claim against the person or persons responsible for the handbook.
- If you had a builder in to repair your roof but the firm did not fix the roof expertly; if roof tiles fell off as a result of negligence and you got hurt, the builder must pay compensation.
