Most dangerous room in the house
While you can make a Carmarthenshire compensation claim for an accident which has occurred anywhere, you may be surprised to hear that a large number of claims occur as a result of accidents in the home.
Many people assume that such accidents occur within the kitchen; actually it is often the bathroom which seems to be the most dangerous room in the house.
Bathrooms tend to be fairly small spaces with lots of hard surfaces that can become slippery when wet. This in turn can lead to potential disaster if an accident takes place. If you do not have anti slip mats or grab rails installed in your bathroom, then a slip on a wet surface could mean a broken bone or worse.
If you live in your own privately owned property then there may be little chance of making a compensation claim if you have had such an accident. After all, who would be regarded as being responsible? However, if you live in rented accommodation then it may be the fault of your landlord. This largely depends on the contents of your tenancy agreement, but an experienced Accident Advice Helpline solicitor will be able to help you with this.
If you have had an accident in a bathroom in a public place, for example, at a hotel, B&B, restaurant or gymnasium then you may be entitled to seek compensation from whoever owns or manages the property.
In such situations the owners have a duty of care to all those that may be using the facilities. If you are injured in an accident at a gym because the flooring was not suitable in the shower area, then you could be entitled to compensation as a result.
Simply speak to an Accident Advice Helpline solicitor and they will be able to discuss this further with you. All you need to do is dial 0800 689 0500 from your land line, or 0333 500 0993 from your mobile to discuss your claim in more detail.
All of our solicitors are fully trained professionals with extensive experience in handling personal injury claims. As a result you can be sure that you will receive the best in care, attention, support and guidance throughout your Carmarthenshire compensation claim.
