Do you need to make West Berkshire personal injury claims after being hurt whilst using mobility equipment?
Have you been hurt because of faulty mobility equipment? Do you now want to know more about West Berkshire personal injury claims? Read on for the help you require.
Designed to assist people with mobility problems, the specialist equipment that’s available can prove to be extremely helpful to patients. If for example, you’ve recently broken your leg or ankle, you may have trouble getting around as you normally would. Using a wheelchair or mobility scooter for a temporary period may help you to retain your independence. It could also prevent you from suffering any secondary injuries.
In addition to this, mobility aids can help people who are dealing with long-term or chronic health problems. As well as mobility scooters and wheelchairs, people can benefit from equipment such as stair lifts, hoists and even simple additions such as hand and stair rails.
Of course, in order for this equipment to be helpful, it must work properly. If for example, you purchase a stair lift and it isn’t fixed to the wall or set up properly, it could be very dangerous indeed. If someone were to fall whilst using it they could suffer very serious injuries. They could also exacerbate their existing condition.
If you’ve been hurt whilst using mobility equipment, you may find that there is something wrong with the equipment itself. If so, you may be able to make West Berkshire personal injury claims against the manufacturers. You could be awarded compensation for your injuries.
If the equipment itself is in good working order but it hasn’t been installed correctly, you could always make your West Berkshire personal injury claims against the installation company as they could be held liable for the harm you suffered.
If this is your first compensation claim, you may want to access legal help before you get started. Unfortunately, some law firms charge expensive upfront fees. It’s important to look around so that you don’t end up spending more than you need to.
