Claiming compensation for negligence during repair work

If you have a property that requires some repair work then it is understandable that you will expect nothing but the best, so if you are unfortunate enough to have work done which is not of an acceptable standard then you could look to claim for compensation. Regardless of what type of job you are after having done, whether it’s electrical, plumbing or any other repair work, it is important that no mistakes are made as you could be left out of pocket with a number of potential hazards in your property. It is the repairman’s responsibility to ensure that no mistakes are made so if this is not the case you could look to claim against them for negligence.

What instances could I look to make a claim?

There are a number of instances where you could look to claim as a result of negligent repair work, with some common examples of where this could occur including:

·         Accidents involving faulty wiring or plumbing

·         Claims if you have been left with burns or scolding

·         Claims if you have suffered from carbon monoxide poisoning

·         Claims if the repairman failed to carry out an acceptable standard of work.

Who might I look to claim against in this situation?

If you have been injured or your property has been damaged as the result of negligent repair work then you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation. It is their responsibility to ensure that the job is completed to the highest standards and that they follow strict health and safety regulations so if you believe that this has not been the case and you have been left to suffer the consequences, then making a claim may be the best course of action to take. Before you decide to take this case through the courts however it is important that you are able to prove their actions have resulted in your claims, so make sure you collate as much evidence as possible.
