Do you need to make a no win no fee Fife compensation claim because you have been injured by electrical cables?
As most houses and commercial buildings in the United Kingdom are fitted with electricity, electric companies need to place wires underneath roads and above buildings in order for the electricity to reach each outlet. If there is a fault with an electrical wire at any point, it can cause the system to short and numerous buildings could be left without power. In addition to this, a faulty or damaged electrical cable could be dangerous and could, in some cases, cause people to be injured or fires to break out.
If, for example, a public electricity cable was damaged and collapsed onto the buildings beneath it, the power may need to be switched off until it is repaired. If this isn’t done, the live electrical cable could damage the building beneath it. If the building was to catch fire, those inside and in surrounding areas could be in danger. Of course, the consequences could be even more serious if a cable were to fall directly onto people or traffic below it.
Fortunately, most electrical companies do take great care in order to ensure that the cables are insulated and that they won’t cause damage to anyone. Although a power cut can be inconvenient, cutting off the power when an incident occurs can actually be the safest option and it can prevent people from getting hurt.
However, if something does go wrong, or if the cables haven’t been installed correctly, and someone is hurt as a result, they may go on to make a no win no fee Fife compensation claim. If you have been hurt in this way, and you can show that you weren’t responsible for the incident, you could go on to make a no win no fee Fife compensation claim against the electrical company or the company who installed the cables.
