When we employ the services of a tradesman, we do so on the understanding that they are qualified and knowledgeable enough to ensure that accidents are kept to a minimum, if they even occur at all. It is one thing to spill some paint or knock over a vase while carrying out some work, but to leave a family member or member of the household injured is something that should not happen.
At Accident Advice Helpline, in conjunction with our no win no fee in Maybole service, we have a great wealth of experience and knowledge in dealing with such cases.
But why do accidents happen when we have tradesmen working on our properties? Is it due to either us or them misjudging the situation, poor training or inadequate knowledge of health and safety procedures? Well, the truth is that there can be any number of reasons as to why such accidents occur, but the result is that an accident involving a tradesman may entitle you to compensation, if it is not your fault.
My tradesman wasn’t qualified sufficiently
Depending on how you came to be in contact with your tradesman, they should have shown you references, qualifications or a portfolio of work that will enable you to examine their ability to do the job. But sometimes the aforementioned documentation is not available, and to this end we must work on trust. If that trust is broken, it can lead not only to poor workmanship, but also the sustaining of injuries through otherwise avoidable accidents.
With this in mind, if you have found yourself in the position whereby the workmanship of a tradesman has been poor enough to lead to an accident, then you might be eligible to claim compensation. Plus, it may not be just for the accident – you may be able to make a claim for compensation for emotional distress, and this is where Accident Advice Helpline and our no win no fee in Maybole service can help.
