Claiming Compensation for an Accident At Home

Injuries don’t always occur in the workplace and if you become injured while at home you may be eligible to claim for compensation to cover the costs of your rehabilitation process and your loss of income.

In the UK millions of people each year are hospitalised due to accidents that are caused at home and many of them due to no fault of their own. If you are one of these people and you are not the person at fault then you may be eligible to make an injury claim today.

What are some of the common situations I can claim for?

You can claim for accidents at home if you can prove that the fault of the accident is entirely to blame on a third party, these situations can include:

Faulty products – If you have recently purchased a product from a vendor and it is faulty you may be eligible to claim compensation. If the product breaks and injures you or catches on fire and causes damage to you and your property then you may be able to claim back the money that you have lost.

Rental properties – If you are currently leasing a rental property it is the responsibility of the landlord to ensure that your property is safe and well-maintained. If you have an accident as a result of poor maintenance then you may be eligible for a compensation claim.

Repair work/Construction work – If your home has recently undergone a redevelopment and you have been injured as a result of poorly constructed equipment then you may be eligible to make a claim if you can prove that the workers were negligent. 

What do I need to do to claim?

In order to make a claim of this type you need to be able to prove that the accident at home occurred directly as the result of someone else’s fault. This could be a worker within your house or a product manufacturer. Photographs and receipts should be maintained as evidence to support your claims.

How can I take action?

If you feel that you have been the victim of an accident at home due to someone else’s negligence then you may qualify for a compensation pay out. If you have been injured in your own home by someone else’s work then you could be eligible for the full costs of your medical treatment as well as other expenses.
