Dodgy traders and West Sussex accident at work compensation
Imagine that you hired somebody to come into your home to fit an ornate mantelpiece above your open fire. It’s a big, heavy and bulky thing, so you have come to the conclusion that you’d best get a trader in to fit it, with no thoughts that doing so might end in you being put in a position where you might be able to seek a West Sussex accident at work compensation payout.
Your trader seems to do a good job. The mantelpiece looks to be well fitted, and you’re pleased with what they have done. You pay the man and he goes on his way. However, not more than couple of days later, the mantelpiece falls on your foot while you’re placing a few items on it. This ends up breaking three of your toes. It transpires that to save money, your trader has skimped on the adhesive compound he used to attach your mantelpiece to your wall.
