Have you been injured at home or work?
Although people are quick to presume that you must have suffered a certain type of injury in order to be eligible to make a compensation claim, often this isn’t the case. Whilst people generally think that you must have suffered very serious injuries in order to obtain compensation, you can often make a claim and receive significant compensation for even seemingly minor injuries.
Similarly, you can make a compensation claim for injuries that have occurred in numerous ways. Providing someone or something else caused your injuries, it’s likely that injury solicitors in Sleaford will be able to help you make a claim.
Despite a raft of health and safety legislation, a significant number of people do still suffer injuries in the workplace. Depending on your job role, injuries at work can be severe and you may be forced to take a long time off work, change your job role or even give up work altogether. If you’re hurt whilst at work and it wasn’t your fault, injury solicitors in Sleaford may be able to help you make a claim and you could obtain compensation for the harm you’ve suffered.
Similarly, injuries which occur whilst you’re out and about can also give rise to a compensation claim. If, for example, you’re hurt whilst in a shop or restaurant and it wasn’t your fault, the owners or managers might be liable for your injuries and injury solicitors in Sleaford could help you to make a claim against them.
Whilst it seems straightforward that you can make a claim for injuries which occur out of the house, many people are surprised to learn that you can also make claims for injuries which happen while you’re at home. If, for example, workers are conducting work, such as building work, on your premises and you suffer an injury because of it, you may be able to claim compensation against them. Similarly, faulty products which caused injuries in the home could also give rise to successful compensation claims.
