Compensation for poisonous fumes at home

For many people the home is a sanctuary, an area where they feel safe and an area where they think that nothing could possibly go wrong, unfortunately it is often this complacency that leads to problems occurring if a person is not expecting a problem to happen to them in the home. 

With the amount of electrical and gas appliances that we have around the home it’s not unusual to see a number of dangerous fumes within the vicinity – and some of these are so clear and odourless that you might not even realise that they are even there – as a result you could be left with injuries, and if this hasn’t been your fault, then you could look to make a claim for compensation.

What are poisonous fumes?

Poisonous fumes generally refer to any type of gas substance which is dangerous to humans or dangerous to the environment. They can emanate from a number of sources, but they are usually the result of some type of appliance within the home that is malfunctioning, or a faulty source of electricity/gas which may have been damaged. Either way, if you fall victim to these you could be left with serious long-term injuries as a result.

Where could I be the victim of poisonous fumes?

There are a number of situations where poisonous fumes could potentially leave you with injuries. Some common examples of where this might occur include:

Situations where a negligent repairman has left you with injuries

Injuries sustained as the result of a faulty appliance

Injuries sustained as the result of a supply error

Injuries sustained through the negligent installation

Injuries caused by a negligent family member or friend.
