Accidents in the home
You will be forgiven for thinking that your home is probably one of the safest places you could ever be, and therefore you will never need to speak to an injury solicitor in Shirehampton about an injury that has occurred there. Unfortunately, although that is logical, your assumption would be wrong.
It has been estimated that approximately 2.7 million people need to go to accident and emergency departments throughout the United Kingdom each year as a result of accidents which have occurred within the home. It goes without saying that some of these accidents will just be faultless, perhaps a moment of distraction whilst hammering in a nail, using the wrong type of ladder when hanging up external Christmas decorations. In such situations, it would not be possible to make a claim for personal compensation.
In order to make a claim, your injury solicitor in Shirehampton needs to know and be able to demonstrate that the accident which caused your injuries was not your fault. If you have been to blame for your accident, there will be nobody to make a claim against.
Injury solicitor in Shirehampton
When you instruct our injury solicitor in Shirehampton to work with you on your case, they will ask you for information regarding your accident and who you think might be to blame. They will then help you to ascertain who is actually responsible, and will assist you in making sure that this person is found to be liable. It will then be against this person, or their insurance policy, that you will make a claim for financial compensation.
Accidents that occur within the home can be the fault of other people — sometimes people you’ve never even met. For example, you could be injured as the result of a defective or faulty product. You might have purchased an item in good faith which not only fails to work, but perhaps breaks down and injures you in the process.
People have also been injured as a result of poorly completed work that has been done on their home. This could include general maintenance work, both internally and externally to the properly, or home improvements — for example, having a new set of windows fitted.
