Speak to an injury claim lawyer in Hertingfordbury today
When people think about accidents which have occurred in their own home they automatically assume that they won’t be able to make a claim for the injuries which they have suffered. However, once they speak to an injury claim lawyer in Hertingfordbury they realise that they might well be entitled to make a claim. Perhaps you could too.
Just because you have been injured in your own home does not mean that the accident was your fault. Of course, there are a variety of instances were an accident is just that, something that “happened”, and while it is unfortunate if you have been injured in such a situation, there is very little to be done about it.
However, there are equally a number of situations in which an accident could have been prevented, and in which it is possible for an injury claim lawyer in Hertingfordbury to argue that the accident was caused by someone else. Specifically, that it was someone else’s fault that you have been injured.
If that is the case with your accident then speak to an injury claim lawyer in Hertingfordbury today because they will be able to claim that the person responsible for your accident is liable for your injury, and it is against them that a personal injury compensation claim can be made.
Types of Accidents
There are many ways in which you could be injured in an accident in your own home and not be regarded as being at fault for it. Speak to an injury claim lawyer in Hertingfordbury today to find out if your accident qualifies.
Here are some examples of the sorts of cases one of our injury claim lawyers in Hertingfordbury could help you with:
- Injury as a result of a defective product. This could be an electrical item which has caught fire, a piece of furniture which collapsed under your weight despite being used for the purposes which it was intended, being scalded by boiling water because a handle broke off a saucepan.
- Injury as a result of poorly maintained properties. If you live in rented accommodation (whether this is private or council) then you could make a claim through your injury lawyer in Hertingfordbury for injury if you have fallen down poorly maintained stairs, tripped over loose carpet tiles, or been subjected to any other form of accident as a result of repairs that were not completed, or not completed effectively.
- Injury as a result of poorly completed building works. You do not have to be the home owner to claim compensation for such an injury. Injury could be caused by a leak that has not been properly fixed, and caused a ceiling to collapse, injuring you in the process.
