Are you making a claim with a Copeland law firm against a plumber?
If you’ve recently purchased a new home or property, you may be carrying out work on it prior to moving in or renting it out. Although many property owners are able to carry out much of the work themselves, there may be some jobs that are best left to a professional. If, for example, you require plumbing work to be carried out, you may want to employ a professional plumbing firm to do the work, rather than attempting it yourself.
If you do attempt to carry out this work yourself and things go wrong, you could cause extensive damage to the property, so it could prove to be more cost effective to pay a professional to do the work in the first instance.
Of course, it isn’t just new home owners who require the services of a plumber. If something has gone wrong in your home or there is a leak you may need a plumber to repair the damage. Similarly, if you want your current plumbing to be serviced to ensure that it’s working properly, you may need an experienced and qualified plumber to do this.
As most plumbers have trained for years in order to be certified and qualified, you can normally rely on them to carry out the work properly. On some occasions, however, things may go wrong. In most cases, if a plumber makes an error it will only cause damage to your home. Although this can be frustrating, you can normally claim the cost of repairs back from their insurance.
However, if they make a more serious error they could cause someone to suffer an injury which could be far more serious than just damage to your property. If, for example, the hot water tank is plumbed in incorrectly, your hot water could reach a scalding temperature before it runs out of the tank. This could easily cause someone in your family to suffer burns to their skin. Similarly, if a blockage isn’t cleared, a pipe could subsequently burst which, if filled with hot water, could cause a significant injury.
If a plumber or a professional tradesman or woman does cause someone to suffer this type of injury, it’s possible that a Copeland law firm will be able to help you to make a compensation claim against them. By making a claim with a Copeland law firm you could increase your chances of success and you may even go on to obtain a large amount of compensation.
