Penicuik personal injury claims
Few people are aware that if you have been injured as a result of faulty work that has been carried out in your home then you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation. Often people are concerned about having to make a claim on their own household insurance; however, in the case of faulty work that has caused injury this is not the case.
If someone has come into your property to perform work you have every right to expect that the work will be conducted to not only a good standard, but in a safe manner. Thankfully within the UK the vast majority of our tradespeople do operate to these standards of service. However, as with everything, there are some people who let the side down.
If you have been injured as a result of the actions and failings of one of these individuals, then contact Accident Advice Helpline today to find out whether or not one of our personal injury claims solicitors in Penicuik could help you get the compensation that you deserve.
For example, one of our clients was recently awarded significant compensation after she was injured as a result of the negligence of her plumber. She contacted our Penicuik personal injury claims solicitor and told him what had happened.
“I had employed the plumber to come and change my bathroom sink. It didn’t seem to be a terribly complicated job, and to be fair it didn’t seem to take him long to complete it. However, three weeks later my kitchen ceiling collapsed whilst I was in the middle of cooking dinner. I was struck on the head and knocked unconscious. In the course of the accident I broke my ankle and suffered scalds from the boiling water that was on the stove.”
Our personal injury claims solicitors in Penicuik were able to find out after the property had been investigated by her insurance company that the ceiling collapsed due to a slow leak. The leak itself had been caused by the push fittings that the plumber had used in her new bathroom sink, which he had failed to suitably secure and seal.
“It was such a simple error, but it nearly cost me my life. To be honest, I was very lucky.”
Our personal injury claims solicitors in Penicuik were able to pursue the plumber for compensation, and this was paid out by his own public liability insurance provider. Our client didn’t need to make a claim on her household insurance, as a result, her premiums were not affected.
