    Has a blown light bulb caused an injury?

    In most situations, when a light bulb stops working in your home or workplace, it simply needs replacing and represents a mundane task at the most. However, if there is a problem with the electrics in the property or the bulb itself, you may find that it doesn’t just stop working when it malfunctions.

    In some cases, bulbs which aren’t working properly have been known to shatter or even explode which can obviously cause significant injuries. Whilst the newer, environmentally friendly bulbs don’t seem to suffer this problem as much, the older style light bulbs are still used by many people and may be affected.

    Often, when people go to turn on a light they are standing relatively close to it. If the bulb then shatters, they can easily be hit by pieces of glass which may cut or injure them in some way. If this occurs, you may need to find out if there is a problem with the bulb or the electrics.

    If, for example, the current running through the wires is stronger than it should be, the bulb may have overheated. If you don’t rectify this problem, you could be putting yourself in danger so you’ll want to get it checked out as soon as possible.

    Whilst you may not be able to perform these checks yourself, a qualified electrician should be able to assist you in finding out what caused the issue. If it turns out that previous work was carried out improperly and left the electrics in the building in a dangerous condition, injury solicitors in Uddingston may be able to help you to make a compensation claim against those responsible.

    Similarly, if it was the bulb that was at fault, you could find that injury solicitors in Uddingston can help you to make a claim against the manufacturers and they may have to pay compensation for the injuries you sustained as a result of the incident.

    Will it be expensive to make a compensation claim with injury solicitors in Uddingston?

    Before making a compensation claim, many potential claimants worry about the cost or that they simply won’t be able to fund a compensation claim at all. Unfortunately, some personal injury law firms can charge costly upfront fees which can make it difficult for many people to make a claim.

    However, there are other ways to make a claim with injury solicitors in Uddingston. At Accident Advice Helpline we are committed to working with claimants on a no win no fee* basis. When claimants make a claim with us, they simply aren’t required to make any upfront payment at all which can make the claims process far easier than they expect.
