Types of personal injury claims in Herefordshire
There are a variety of different types of situations in which you may be wanting to make a claim for compensation as a result of the poor work of another individual.
For example, you may have arranged for someone to come in to your property to fit something, perhaps a new door. If once the door is fixed you find that it has not been done properly and the door falls off its hinges, injuring you or another family member in the process, then you could be entitled to seek compensation.
Here at Accident Advice Helpline, our solicitors have a wealth of experience in handling personal injury claims in Herefordshire. Some of these have involved accidents that have happened within people’s homes, regardless of whether they own the homes they live in or if they are renting.
For example, one client contacted us after she was injured at home following a gas explosion. Her landlord had arranged for someone to come and perform a gas safety check on all of the appropriate appliances within the property. During this time they had failed to spot a problem with the boiler and had signed everything off as being safe. Later that night the boiler exploded causing her significant injuries to her face and arms as she was in the vicinity of the explosion at the time.
Such negligence does not just relate to workmen or individuals who may be fitting or repairing items within your home. Some personal injury claims in Herefordshire we deal with involve poor work completed on vehicles including cars and motorbikes. A recent client was injured after her newly replaced battery had not been connected properly, causing her vehicle to suddenly stop working as she was driving along a major road. Another vehicle ploughed into the back of her and she suffered a broken leg as her car hit a tree.
