Have you been hurt whilst doing DIY?
Although making home improvements can prove costly, many people try and save some money by carrying out the work themselves. Whilst skilled professionals are required to carry out some work, such as electrical installations, there are many projects which can be completed by homeowners and DIY enthusiasts.
However, when carrying out DIY projects, it’s important to ensure that you understand exactly what you’re undertaking. Whilst it may be possible to redecorate and build a new future, if you’re planning to change the structure of your home or add an extension, you may need to get planning permission first.
When carrying out home improvements, you want to take as much care as possible so as not to injure yourself. As many DIY projects require the use of power tools, you want to ensure that you don’t leave these lying around, particularly if you have children or pets in your home.
Whilst many people suffer minor injuries whilst completing DIY projects, many of these are self-inflicted. If you’re hurt whilst doing DIY but your injury was caused by someone or something else, it may be possible for an injury solicitor in St Sampsons to help you obtain compensation.
Could you still make a claim with an injury solicitor in St Sampsons if a professional does the work?
In order to minimise the risk of injury, some homeowners prefer to pay specialised contractors to carry out any home improvements. Whilst this may guarantee a professional finish, it doesn’t guarantee that an injury won’t occur.
If you’re hurt because of builders or workmen whilst they’re in your home, it’s likely that a personal injury solicitor in St Sampsons will be able to help you to make a claim for compensation. If you can show that the injuries you sustained weren’t your fault, there’s a good chance that you’ll be able to make a successful claim and obtain compensation with help from an injury solicitor in St Sampsons.
