    How you could sustain electrical fire injuries

    If you’ve never given much thought to how you could sustain electrical fire injuries, you’re not alone. These types of accidents will usually come as a surprise, but they are a common cause behind injury claims. Knowing how you could sustain electrical fire injuries can help to prevent them, and knowing where to turn should you have an accident of this type could help you with your recovery.

    How you could sustain electrical fire injures

    Electrical fire injuries can have a number of causes including:

    • Accidents at work
    • Vehicle accidents
    • Improperly maintained electrics in public areas
    • Faulty workmanship for repairs and maintenance

    Whilst many electrical fire injuries are sustained in the home, there are many which occur as the result of another party. If this is this the case in your situation, you could be eligible to claim compensation for your injuries and help offset any expenses incurred as a result of your accident.

    One of the best examples of this is through an accident at work. It is up to your employer to ensure that all equipment, from office and IT equipment to mechanical machinery is properly maintained, PAT tested regularly and is safeguarded against electrical fire. If however, they fail to carry out these checks, leading to an electrical fire, they are liable for the injuries caused to employees.

    A car accident caused as the result of faulty electrics is another situation where someone else might be to blame. If these cause an electrical fire, the injuries incurred as a result could be devastating.

    Claiming compensation for electrical fire injuries

    If you think you could be eligible to claim compensation for your injuries, then there are certain criteria you need to meet. These include:

    • The accident must have occurred within the last three years
    • The accident was someone else’s fault
    • The accident led to your injuries

    When making a claim it is also important that you obtain medical proof of your injuries from a doctor. Without it, you will be unable to make a claim for compensation.
