If you’re thinking about claiming for injuries in Cheltenham in your home, you could be entitled to raise a no win no fee personal injury compensation claim. Of course, it all depends on the circumstances surrounding your accident and ultimately who is likely to be regarded as being liable for it.
You wouldn’t be able to make a compensation claim if you burn yourself whilst doing the ironing for example, as that is unlikely to be anyone else’s fault other than your own. You also wouldn’t be able to make a claim if you pour boiling hot water on yourself whilst making a cup of tea.
However, if the water was spilt as a result of the handle coming off the kettle, then there is a chance you could make a claim.

What Accident Advice Helpline recommends
The first thing you should always do when injured is to seek medical attention. Not only does this make good sense from a health point of view, but it will also provide immediate proof that you have been injured. This is important if you do decide to pursue a claim.
If your accident was a result of someone else’s actions or negligence, then it is important that you report it as quickly as possible. In the case of the broken kettle, you should return the item to the store from which you bought it and advise them of the situation. Of course, its important that the faulty item was only ever used for the purpose is was designed for, and that it hadn’t been misused.
You might even write a letter of complaint directly to the manufacturer if it warrants it, including photographs of the damages or broken item.
