Are you making Hamilton personal injury claims after being hurt whilst re-decorating?
Although some homeowners do hire professional painters and decorators to carry out work on their properties, in most cases people carry out redecoration work themselves. Whilst some decorating tasks are fairly easy to do, it isn’t unusual for things to go wrong and, if you don’t have much experience, you may end up needing help from professionals.
In order to re-decorate your home, you will need to use a variety of tools, in addition to items such as paint and wallpaper. To make the process easier, most people now use electrical tools, such as wallpaper removers and sanders. These can make the job far easier and mean that you can complete the work far more quickly than if you attempt to use traditional tools. Although it would be costly to purchase all of these tools, particularly if you were only going to use them rarely, there are plenty of places which hire them out so it can be cost effective to use them.
However, using any type of electrical tool can be dangerous, particularly if you don’t have any experience with them. If you’re unsure how to use a tool, you may want to seek advice from an expert, rather than risk suffering an injury.
Whilst some DIY related injuries are caused inadvertently by the people carrying out the work, it is always possible that an electrical tool could cause an injury as well. If the unit isn’t working properly or if it hasn’t been cleaned effectively, it could malfunction and it could cause someone to get seriously hurt. If, for example, a cut out switch didn’t work on a drill or sander and you were unable to turn the machine off, you could suffer a serious injury
If you’ve been hurt whilst carrying out re-decoration work and it wasn’t your fault, it may be possible for you to make Hamilton personal injury claims and obtain compensation for your injuries. As long as you can show that the electrical tool caused the injury, rather than yourself, it’s likely that you will be awarded compensation.
