    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Regardless of whether or not you agree that vital public services such as utilities are better off in the hands of the state than profit-making companies, it will be likely that you’ll expect a decent service from the firms you pay for your gas, electricity and water. Absurdly, people who are left without any electricity for days on end are able to claim little more than chicken feed in compensation, despite the fact that the huge businesses behind the UK’s vital services pay millions of pounds to shareholders every year, while the price the consumer has to pay continues to rise.

    In most cases, a power cut will not make you ill, unless it lasts a very long time or you’re poorly and require some form of power to manage your condition. It could be a different story however if your water supply were to become contaminated. If some nasty chemical or another were to somehow make its way into the mains water supply, you could find yourself becoming very ill indeed.

    If it could be proved that the water company that you buy your water from was responsible for the contamination, and it would be hard to imagine many scenarios where it would not be, there will be a chance that you might well be able to take some form of 100% no win no fee Sefton law firm Claims action against it with the help of a 100% no win no fee personal injury solicitor.

    Contaminated mains water and Sefton law firm action

    It’s a hot, sunny day and you’ve been out for a run. You arrive back home gasping for a drink. Conscious of the fact that it’s unwise to consume too much fruit juice due to its high sugar content, you decide to go for a nice, refreshing glass of tap water. You usually find mains water perfectly acceptable, and have no fears about drinking something nasty and being put in a position where taking some form of Sefton law firm solicitor action might be necessary.

    You take a large sip and feel a nasty burning sensation at the back of your mouth along with a very acidic taste. You later start to vomit and develop the symptoms of diarrhoea. If it could be proved that your condition came about as a result of contaminates in your mains water, you might be able to seek a compensation pay-out from the company that supplies your water.
