What are the causes of accidents in Carmarthen?
When people think about personal injury claims, they often focus on accidents which have occurred in a workplace or on the road. However, there are plenty of causes of accidents in Carmarthen and some even take place inside the home or on your own property.
For example, accidents can sometimes occur in the garden and people can suffer serious injuries as a result.
Whilst many people enjoy planting flowers, there are many gardening-related jobs that are more labour intensive. To plant flowers, for example, you may need to dig the flowerbed over, add new soil before finally planting your flowers of choice. If you choose to plant shrubs or trees, they may need regular pruning, as well as special soils and feeds to keep them healthy.
Due to the amount of labour required, many people use specific gardening tools which can make the work easier. For example, most people now use electric lawnmowers, rather than manual ones. In addition to this, people may use electric trimmers to cut the side of the lawn, rather than doing this by hand with a pair of shears.
Whilst these types of tools can be extremely useful, they can also be dangerous, especially if they are kept in a home environment. If you’ve recently purchased a tool for use in the gardening, it’s important to read the instructions thoroughly, rather than simply plugging it in and switching it on. If the unit isn’t assembled correctly, it may malfunction or blades could simply slip off and strike someone.
If you do use the item according to the instructions and you do suffer an injury, it may be because something is wrong with the unit itself. If, for example, it hadn’t been manufactured properly, the item may be dangerous and could easily cause an accident. In such cases, you may be eligible to make a no win no fee* compensation claim against the manufacturer, if you choose to do so.
