Accidents in the home: strange idea or common occurrence?
It certainly seems strange that your home should be the place in which you are most likely to have an accident that requires medical attention, but statistics bear this out.
According to RoSPA, there are 2.7 million people per year who end up at the Accident and Emergency ward of their hospital, requiring treatment for injuries sustained in an accident at home.
You could be eligible for compensation
After such an accident, you might be feeling quite annoyed, both as a result of the injury you’ve sustained, which might mean you have to take time off work and hire a home help, and because it happened at home.
But the accident that caused your injury may not be your fault. It could have happened because a faulty product caused it, or because you hired contractors to do some work on your house and they didn’t finish it properly. Perhaps you got scalded because your boiler is faulty.
Whatever it is, if you qualify for compensation, an accident solicitor in North Yorkshire will be happy to help you make your claim!

The first step in any claim is a conversation with one of Accident Advice Helpline’s friendly, professional advisors. They are fully trained to guide claimants through all the processes involved in making a claim, and if you have any questions when you call, they will happily answer them for you.
If you’re eligible for compensation, the next stage is for one of our solicitors to handle your case. They will work hard on your behalf, dealing with all the relevant agencies, such as insurance companies, always aiming to get you the best possible payout.
