    What do you know about accidents in the home?

    Were you aware, for example, that in some cases a lawyer could take on your compensation claim for a home accident?

    The facts about home accidents

    If you’ve had an accident in your home, and you got injured because of it, you might have thought it was a rare occurrence.

    That may well be the case for you personally, but the statistics from RoSPA paint a different picture:

    • In 2002, 2.7 million home accidents resulted in a hospital trip for some treatment
    • Most home accidents are falls
    • The living room is the most likely place for an accident to occur
    • About 4000 people die every year because of an accident at home

    How to prevent home accidents

    There are so many things you could do to prevent a home accident. Just acknowledging that they happen is a good start, because it will enable you not to be complacent.

    In practical terms, avoid trips and slips by moving obstacles out of the way. Clear up after yourself, in other words! Slipping or tripping is often followed by a fall.

    You should also make sure that you’re careful in the kitchen. For example, if you’re boiling things, keep an eye on the pans and turn the handles away from the edge so you don’t accidentally knock them off the hob.

    In the bathroom, why not use a non-slip bath mat? It will help you to get in and out of the bath without slipping – which is always a big risk.

    Some home accidents may be others’ fault

    Unfortunately, you can’t always prevent accidents in your home, because sometimes, they’re not of your making.

    What if you’ve had some builders in and they haven’t finished their work properly? Or how about if you plug in a new appliance and it’s faulty? You could get injured.

    In such cases, you can take some comfort from the fact that the best lawyers in Wychavon could help you.
