Accidents in the Home

While accidents at home are often the result of our own behaviour, such as banging into the side of the coffee table, some accidents that occur in our properties can be someone else’s fault, such as a manufacturer of a faulty appliance or tradesperson who has not taken reasonable care when carrying out a certain job. If you have suffered injury as a result of an accident in the home and you think another person or a business is responsible, then contact the specialist solicitors at Jones Whyte Law today to discuss your case and the potential to claim for compensation.

Who can make a Claim for an Accident in the Home?

In order for you to be able to claim compensation, the accident that caused your injury must have been caused by someone else’s negligence. Negligence is a strict and complex area of the law, which is why it is important to seek assistance from a legal specialist if are considering claiming for an injury at home. For negligence to be proven and for you to have a valid claim for compensation, it must be shown that:

  • someone owed you a duty of care;
  • they breached that duty of care;
  • as a result of the breach, you were injured.

The types of accidents that you may be able to claim for include those caused by:

  • a negligently repaired roof;
  • poorly maintained wiring;
  • poorly maintained pipes;
  • badly fitted windows breaking; and
  • poorly constructed stairs breaking.

Bringing a Claim for Accidents in the Home with Solicitors in Glasgow, Scotland

Where you are injured at home as a result of a faulty product or a fault in the construction or maintenance of the home itself we will ask you for certain information to help with your claim. This may include the manufacturer’s name and contact details, the contact details for the person or company that carried out any faulty repairs, as well as pictures of the injury you have suffered and any damage to your property. We will value your claim and contact the other party (or their insurance company) to begin negotiating a satisfactory settlement.
