    Irvine Personal Injury Claims

    Do you need to make Irvine personal injury claims after installing a loft conversion?

    Rather than move to a new property, many homeowners opt to extend their existing homes in order to provide extra rooms. Often, these extensions involve adding new rooms to the ground or first floors but in some instances, people prefer to add a loft conversion to the property. Instead of using the attic space for storage, many people now convert their lofts into living accommodation. In addition to being used an extra bedroom, these conversions can also be used as offices, home gyms and even to have additional bathrooms installed.

    If you’re considering having an extension added to your property or installing a loft conversion, it’s likely that you will need assistance from qualified and experienced contractors. Although there are some renovation works that can be carried out by homeowners, such large projects must be carried out by professionals.

    As these types of building works can change the structure of a property, it is essential that they are carried out properly. If they aren’t, the whole building could become unsafe and serious injuries could occur if the building wasn’t structurally secure.

    Once the planning stage has been completed, you may want the builders and contractors to begin working straightaway. Unfortunately, this type of projects can take weeks or months to complete and many families find it difficult to live in such an environment. Often, building work is noisy and creates a significant amount of dust and debris. Whilst most contractors will go out of their way to only cause minimal disruption, it’s inevitable that families will suffer some temporary inconvenience.

    If it’s viable, many families prefer to rent another property whilst the work is being carried out on their own home. In addition to being easier for them, it can also help to reduce the number of potential accidents which could occur. When your home is effectively turned into a temporary building site, there are numerous ways in which accidents can occur. If walls are being demolished or heavy machinery being used, it is always possible that someone could be stood in the wrong place at the wrong time and suffer an injury.

    Of course, it isn’t always financially possible to live elsewhere whilst work is being carried out on your home. If you have arranged for work to be done on your property and you, or a member of your family, suffer injuries as a result, it may be possible for you to make Irvine personal injury claims. If you can show that the injuries weren’t your fault, it’s likely that your Irvine personal injury claims will be successful and you could receive a large amount of compensation.

    If you think that you might be eligible to make Irvine personal injury claims, why not call Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500 or 0333 500 0993 if you’re calling from a mobile to find out more?
