Do you need to make a no win no fee Dunfermline compensation claim after being hurt whilst hoovering?
Although new technologies are being invented all the time, the hoover or vacuum cleaner, in various incarnations, has actually been around for many decades. Whilst they are generally used for cleaning carpets, most modern versions have arrange of features which allow users to clean laminate flooring and fabrics, such as sofas and chairs.
Due to their ease of use and relative low cost, most people have hoovers or vacuum cleaners at home. In most cases, they are used on a daily basis without incident. However, as with any electrical time, there is always the chance that something could go wrong. If the cleaner stops working or doesn’t work as it should, there may be something wrong with it. If it is fairly new or under guarantee, you may want to return it to the shop or to the manufacturers so that it can be fixed. Whilst this can be inconvenient, it is preferable to attempting to use a sub-par cleaner.
Unfortunately, in some cases, when a vacuum cleaner stops working properly, it can become dangerous. If the electrical components become loose or the safety mechanisms on the machine stop working, it could potentially cause someone to suffer an injury. If, for example, you use an upright hoover, it should have a catch so that the item can be left unattended without falling over. If this fails to work, the unit would be unstable and it could easily fall on someone. If this were to hit an adult, it could cause a serious injury, such as a sprain, a fracture or even a broken bone, but if it were to hit a child or an animal, the consequences could be even more serious.
If your vacuum cleaner has malfunctioned in some way and it has caused someone to suffer some form of injury, you may be inclined to make a no win no fee Dunfermline compensation claim against the manufacturer. You may even find that the problem is affecting more than one unit and other people may have been hurt in the same way.
If you have been hurt by an item, such as a vacuum cleaner, it’s important not to dispose of it, unless it’s too dangerous to keep in your home. Often, investigations on the time will confirm whether or not the manufacturers could be held liable for your injuries so this could be important when it comes to making your no win no fee Dunfermline claim.
