Injured in an accident in Weymouth and Portland when you were hurt in your own home?
If you’ve been injured in an accident in Weymouth and Portland, when you suffered an injury or were hurt while in your own home, you may simply assume that it was your own fault and that you caused the incident to occur. Although people do accidentally injure themselves on occasion, it is possible that someone or something else caused your injuries to occur.
If, for example, you were injured in an accident in Weymouth and Portland when using an appliance, such as a television and a laptop and this caused your injuries, it may be that the unit was responsible for the harm you suffered. If the unit malfunctioned and you were hurt as a result, you may actually be able to make Weymouth and Portland personal injury claims against the manufacturers or the sellers, rather than taking responsibility for the incident yourself.
Injured in an accident in Weymouth and Portland caused by your property?
Of course, it’s always possible that the property itself could have caused your injuries. If you live in a relatively newly built property, there is a chance that a structural problem could result in injuries. If, for example, part of the building was unstable, it could cause a partial collapse or uneven flooring which could have resulted in you hurting yourself. In such cases, you may be able to make Weymouth and Portland personal injury claims against the construction firm who built the property and you could obtain compensation for the harm you suffered.
Similarly, older buildings can cause problems too. If you live in an older property, you may need to commission regular maintenance work in order to ensure that you’re home remains in good working order and that it’s safe. If you hire an electrician to do work on the property but they fail to do it properly and you’re hurt as a result, you should be able to make Weymouth and Portland personal injury claims against them.
Fortunately, the strict building regulations in the United Kingdom mean that these types of incidents are relatively rare but you could take action if you happen to be hurt in this way. In order to make successful Weymouth and Portland personal injury claims, however, you may need help from a lawyer or a solicitor, particularly if you’re planning to make Weymouth and Portland personal injury claims against a large company or organisation.
