Oxford personal injury claims – accidents in the home
You may be entitled to make a claim for compensation if you have been injured in your own home.
Many people find this quite unbelievable at first. This is usually because we are aware that Oxford personal injury claims can only be made if someone else has been liable for your accident. Of course, accidents can occur in your home as a result of someone’s actions however, and therefore a claim can be made.
One of the most reasons people are injured in their own homes is as a result of faulty or defective products. It may be that you have bought a new piece of furniture, such as a chair or table, that does sustain your weight, or collapsed the first time it is used.
Perhaps you have purchased a set of ladders and they also do not work, or are not stable?
You might even have bought some food, whether it be meat from a butchers or a pre-prepared meal from a supermarket. If that food is not fit for human consumption, or has been tampered with in anyway, or not stored correctly whilst in store then there is a good chance that it will contain various germs and bacteria. If this is the case then you may be exposed to food poisoning.
All of these incidents would give rise to Oxford personal injury claims being made.
If you live in rented accommodation, whether that is privately rented or via the local council or Housing Association, people can make Oxford personal injury claims if they have been injured as a result of faults within the property.
