    Rushcliffe No Win No Fee

    Despite being relatively new, it’s hard to imagine life before or without a mobile telephone.

    Almost everyone has a mobile phone and whether it’s the latest smart technology with wi-fi, internet access and social media, or simply a device to make a call and send a text, there are few people who feel truly comfortable unless their portable friend is by their side.

    Having a mobile phone means that regular charging becomes part of a daily routine and for the most part charging is safe and fast. However there are some dangers when it comes to using a mobile phone charger, because any device which uses electricity carries with it a risk.

    If you have been injured by a mobile phone charger, Rushcliffe no win no fee solicitors offer a 30 second test which could quickly establish if you’re entitled to make a claim for compensation.

    Charge it up!

    Most people charge their phone at least once a day and do so without accident or incident. In fact, they’d probably consider the idea of an accident happening during charging to be quite odd.

    However, when you consider that any item of electrical equipment carries with it a risk of overheating, electrocution, or burning, and then also consider the frequency with which millions of us use phone chargers and the danger becomes more prevalent.

    Compensation exists as part of health and safety regulations which provide almost all of us in various capacities (as a pedestrian, driver, employee and employer to name but a few) with a duty of care towards other people. As part of this duty of care, we have a responsibility to keep them safe and take all necessary precautions against danger or harm. Should we fail in this duty then compensation could be sought through Rushcliffe no win no fee solicitors to pay compensation to the victim.

    In many accidents, especially those involving electricity or electrical items, there is no third party to blame. The accident was purely an accident which nobody could have foreseen nor prevented and as a result Rushcliffe no win no fee solicitors would be unable to make a claim for compensation.

    However, the duty of care also extends to retailers who have to ensure that any and all goods they sell to members of the public are suitable for general use. In the case of electrical items, they must be made in accordance with British Standards and must be safe for use in homes and businesses.

    Should the item in question, in this case a mobile phone charger, fail to be safe when used and a member of the public be injured as a result, that victim has the right to seek compensation through Rushcliffe no win no fee practitioners.
