    Injury claim for faulty work

    Injury claim for faulty work

    You may be typing injury claim for faulty work into your search box to find out if you can make an injury claim for faulty work. If you have had some building work done or had your home renovated, but the work was substandard and you suffered an injury due to this, you may have grounds to file an injury claim for faulty work.

    You may have been hit on the head when a loose brick fell, and you may have suffered concussion and/or whiplash. You will need to have medical treatment immediately after such an accident, then you should find an accident or a personal injury solicitor to help you file an injury claim for faulty work against the builder responsible.

    Injury claim for faulty work

    An injury claim for faulty work could be made against an electrician, plumber or other person providing a similar service in your home. Perhaps there was a fire after you had just had your house rewired and it had been caused by an electrical fault. You may have been burned in the fire and required medical treatment. You may have had a plumber in to fix your washing machine, and he failed to do this properly and this caused a flood and damage to your furniture, carpets and so on. You could have fallen if you had not realised there was water in your home and damaged your back or a limb.

    Accident solicitor and your first appointment

    You will need to find a solicitor who has dealt with claims such as yours in the past. Generally, you will be given a free initial appointment to discuss your claim. The solicitor will advise you about whether or not you have good grounds to make a claim at the end of the interview.

    If you have kept the receipt you had for the person’s work, then you should take it with you when you visit an accident solicitor. This is needed as supporting evidence for your claim. It is also a good idea to take photographs of the damage and scene of your accident, as well as your injuries, as these are also useful supporting evidence. If you have your medical report, then you should also take this with you, as if you have a claim then your solicitor will have to study this report in order to build a case.
