Accidents at home
We all like to think that we are perfectly safe within our own homes, however, this is not always the case. Unfortunately accidents can occur in any situation and environment, and simple errors or lapses of judgment can lead to serious injury. If you have been injured in an accident in your own home, and you think that accident may have been caused by someone else, then you could have the right to make a Deganwy no win no fee claim for compensation.
Types of accident
The key to being able to make a Deganwy no win no fee claim for compensation is establishing that the accident which caused your personal injuries was not your fault. If your accident was caused as a result of you not paying enough attention, or tripping over an item that you left lying around in the home, then we are sorry to say you wouldn’t be able to make a claim – no matter how severe your injuries were.
However, if someone else left something lying around your own – for example, a tradesman – and you tripped over it, then any injuries you sustained could entitle you to compensation. We recently helped one client make a Deganwy no win no fee claim after she broke her toe following a trip over a tile cutter. Her tiler had left the item in the middle of the hallway and as it was too heavy to move, she had to leave it there. Unfortunately as she was returning home from work she stubbed her toe and her injury occurred.
In the above situation the tiler was found to be responsible for the accident and our client’s injuries as he did not take the proper care to ensure safety within the work environment.
You might also be able to make a Deganwy no win no fee claim if you have been injured as a result of faults within your property. This may be a fault caused by a tradesperson who has not done their job properly, or faults that have not been properly rectified by your landlord. Raised floor tiles, lose carpets and wobbly cupboards can all cause some potentially serious injuries which bring with them a variety of problems.
