Businesses install burglar alarms at their premises for a number of reasons. As well as acting as a deterrent to would-be thieves who might be put off committing a crime after seeing an alarm box on the exterior wall of a company’s premises, they can also disrupt criminals in the act. On top of this, they alert police to the fact that a robbery is in progress, and can reduce the insurance costs of a firm. However, in some circumstances they could end up costing a company.
If you’ve had your hearing damaged after a burglar or fire alarm went off accidently while you were in a building, there will be a chance that you might be able to make a claim for compensation after having taken some advice on personal injury claims in Sutton.
Hearing damage and advice on personal injury claims in Sutton
Although some burglar alarms are silent and are intended primarily to inform the police or a private security firm of a break-in, the majority give off an all-mighty racket that is intended to draw attention to the premises in question. Sometimes, these types of systems can be triggered in error. So, if you were in the shop, or any other type of public building for that matter, and had your hearing damaged by an alarm that had been set off by mistake, you might well find yourself in a position where you could be well placed to take action.
You might find that you would have to take action against the company that installed the alarm system rather than the owner of the business you were visiting. If your hearing really was damaged in an accident that was not your fault as a result of a faulty alarm system, you won’t need to worry about establishing liability. That will be a job for your personal injury law firm.
