Finding good traders to work on your home, be they plumbers, builders or electricians, has always been a bit of a minefield. While it may have been made a little easier with the arrival of websites that allow you to check out a trader’s past history before deciding who to hire, taking on somebody who hasn’t done any work for you before will always be a bit of a shot in the dark.
When you think about it, you put a huge amount of faith and trust into a trades-person when you allow them to enter your home. Especially if you’re hiring them to do major reconstruction work or fiddle about with your gas or electricity supply. With some jobs, if a trader made a mistake, your and your family’s safety could be put at risk. If a trader does make a hash of a job at your home and you or somebody close to you ends up getting hurt as a consequence, you may be able to use the services of a good 100% no win no fee in Broxton solicitor to seek a compensation payout from the trader concerned.
Traders and no win no fee in Broxton solicitors
You may be able to use the services of a top-class 100% no win no fee in Broxton solicitor if you are injured while a trader is in your home working on a job, or if the work carried out subsequently ended up to be substandard and caused you an injury later. As most reputable traders will have liability insurance in place, you won’t need to worry too much about getting your money, even if the trader that injured you looked like he was running a one-man band. You may have reason to worry if the trader did not have liability insurance in place.
There will be a chance that your trader’s insurer will either approach you or your no win no fee Broxton solicitor to make you an offer before your case gets to court. If this happens, don’t make a decision about whether or not to accept until you’ve discussed the matter in detail with your solicitor. Some insurance firms can try to offer amounts that are way below what claimants might be able to win in court.
