Do you need to make a claim for different injuries in Chorley?
When the structure of a building is damaged or threatened, it can make the building very unsafe. In some cases, damage to the foundations or the structure can even cause a whole building to collapse which can obviously result in catastrophic harm and different injuries in Chorley.
When work is going to be carried out on a building, a structural engineer or surveyor may need to examine the building and plan the work so that it can be carried out safely. In some cases, they may also need to look at nearby properties to ensure that they won’t be damaged as a result of the work.
When a building’s structure is damaged, it may not cause an issue straightaway. If builders or contractors realise what has happened, they can often evacuate the building until it is made safe. However, if no-one realises what has happened, or if the problem isn’t resolved immediately, the building could potentially collapse at any time.
Have you been hurt?
If you’ve been injured because of a building collapse, it’s likely that you will be able to make a compensation claim. If more than one person has been injured, the people or person responsible is likely to face multiple compensation claims so numerous people may be entitled to compensation for different injuries in Chorley.
If the injuries you’ve sustained are very serious, you may need urgent medical attention. Following this treatment, it may take you weeks or months to fully recover so you may not want to contact solicitors or make your claim straightaway.
If you don’t feel able to make a claim straight after the incident, this doesn’t mean that you will miss out on the chance to obtain compensation. In most instances, people are able to make a compensation claim for up to three years after they’ve been hurt so you could still have time to make your claim and obtain compensation.
