- Was not your fault

What sort of accidents can I claim for?
It would be almost impossible to try to list every single possible type of accident that you could have within the home. At Accident Advice Helpline we have over 12 years’ experience in dealing with various personal injury cases and some of them have included:
Injuries as a result of defective products: you might purchase a new kettle, once boiled you go to pour the water in to a cup and the handle completely comes away. As a result boiling water spills all over the work surface, the floor and most importantly yourself, scalding you and causing significant burns. As a consumer it is your right to expect that the product(s) you purchase are fit for purpose, and in this instance it is clear that the kettle was not fit for purpose at all, and as a result of a manufacturing error, you have been injured. In this instance you would be entitled to call an injury lawyer in Winterborne Monkton.
Injuries as a result of shoddy workmanship: You could also be injured as a result of work that you have recently had completed on your home. For example, if you have recently had a new window fitted somewhere in your house, and this window suddenly falls out of the frame, landing on you and causing injury as a result, you would be entitled to make a compensation claim as the window had been poorly fitted within the home.
