Do you need to contact Dumbarton accident claim solicitors because of a faulty alarm?
In order to protect themselves and their families, many people now have a range of alarms installed within their homes. In addition to having a smoke or fire alarm, many people now also have a carbon monoxide alarm which can help to protect people if there was a carbon monoxide leak or a fire in the property. As well as this, some people also have burglar alarms which are designed to deter potential burglars and alert the family if anyone does gain access into the property.
Whilst these alarms can do a great job or protecting us, they will only do so if they are working properly. If you are required to change the batteries on your alarms, it’s essential that you keep a note of when to do this. In fact, many people mark this on their calendar so they can be sure that they won’t forget. In addition to this, you’ll want to check the alarms regularly to ensure that they are working properly.
If an incident does occur, and the alarm fails to work, you could potentially make a compensation claim against the manufacturer. As long as the alarm hasn’t been tampered with and as long as you’ve used it according to the instructions, Dumbarton accident claim solicitors should be able to assist you in making a claim if it failed to work and someone was hurt because of it.
Of course, if someone has suffered a serious or life-threatening injury, making a compensation claim with Dumbarton accident claim solicitors may not be the first thing on your mind. If you’re waiting for a family member to receive treatment, or if you have been injured yourself, you may want to wait until you’ve begun the recovery process before you start your claim.
If you’re worried that you’re going to run out of time to make a claim with Dumbarton accident claim solicitors, there’s no need to panic. In most cases, claimants can make a claim with Dumbarton accident claim solicitors up to three years after the incident has occurred so you could still have plenty of time to obtain compensation for your injuries.
