Thinking about making Pyle claims? Employing cowboy traders might not only leave you with shoddy work that you’ll eventually end up having to pay to put right, it could also result in you or another member of your household sustaining an injury in an accident that was not your fault. Going for the cheapest quote will not always be the best idea — a few quid saved upfront could end up costing you a lot more in the future, both in terms of money and potential injuries.
Before employing a trader, you would be well advised to do some research into their background. Ask for references, check online, look at trader sites, and ask around your friends and family to see if they know anybody reliable who can do the work you need carried out.
If you’ve already been injured in an accident that was not your fault, which came about as a result of the shabby workmanship of a trader you’ve employed to do some work on your property, there is a chance that you might well be in a position to seek some form of 100% no-win, no-fee* Pyle claims for compensation.
Dodgy traders and Pyle claims solicitors
Picture the scenario: you’ve just moved into a new property that needs a substantial amount of work carried out on it. At first, you want to get the downstairs area sorted. You decide that the bedroom and the bathrooms can wait until you can afford it.
You employ a trader who you met down your local pub. He seems like a lovely bloke, and certainly not the type who would carry out sub-standard work that might end up injuring you and putting you in a position where you would be considering legal action.
He does a good job. You’re happy, and pay the man his money. One afternoon, while you’re placing ornaments on the fireplace surround he put up, your stone mantelpiece falls to the ground, breaking your foot in the process. It transpires that the tradesperson you used had skimped on the adhesive compound he used to secure it in place, in an effort to save money.
In these circumstances, you might well be able to instigate action, with a view to securing compensation for your pain and suffering.
