Accidents at Home
Each year a large number of people who attend accident and emergency departments in their local hospitals have been injured as a result of accidents that have occurred within their homes. Sometimes these accidents are simple lapses of concentration, perhaps being injured in a chip pan fire or burning themselves on an iron. They are frustrating, painful and often inconvenient, but not really anyone’s fault.
However, some accidents can be attributed to someone else — someone’s error or failure to do something — and in these instances it is worth speaking to an injury lawyer in Crieff to find out if you are eligible to make a compensation claim for the personal injuries that you have suffered.
Contacting an injury lawyer in Crieff
If you want to speak to an injury lawyer in Crieff, you can contact any number of compensation claim companies. However, it would be advisable to speak to an organisation with experience in dealing with a wide variety of claim types.
Accident Advice Helpline are a law firm with over 15 years’ experience in dealing with personal injury claims. Our in-house injury lawyer in Crieff is a specialist in their field – they do not deal with any other kind of legal proceedings (for example family law, including divorces, employment law or criminal law). This means that they fully understand the complexities of pursuing a compensation claim and know precisely how to handle any obstacles that come up during the process of making your claim.
You can call our 24-hour freephone helpline to speak to a member of our customer advice team, who will be happy to answer any queries you may have about making a claim. You can even take our 30-second test on our website, which will tell you if you are eligible to make a claim based on the circumstances of your accident. If you decide to make a claim for compensation, then our advisor will allocate an expert injury lawyer in Crieff to your case who will be with you every step of the way while you make your claim.
One example of the type of cases that our injury lawyer in Crieff deal with on a regular basis can be poor workmanship. For example, you may have arranged for a professional to come and fit a new heater in your property. After installation, you may go to investigate a strange noise coming from the heater, and as you reach up to turn it off, fearing it is faulty, it comes away from its wall brackets and falls on you. Not only might this cause some form of crush injury (depending on the weight of the object and the height it has fallen), but if the heater has been on recently there is a good chance you will suffer some degree of burn injury.
In this instance, your injury lawyer in Crieff will be able to argue that the heater was not installed correctly and the workman will be liable for your accident and injuries. If you want to discuss your accident in more detail then make sure you get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline. Our expert advisers can be reached on 0800 689 0500 now.
