A guide to making a No Win No Fee faulty wiring accident claim
Faulty wiring is dangerous and can lead to electric shock or fire. If you are affected by faulty wiring, what is the best way to claim compensation?
Accidents in the home resulting from faulty wiring are common but can be prevented by ensuring that any wiring is assembled and assessed by a qualified electrician. In the event of an injury caused by faulty wiring, compensation may be available if the claimant was not to blame.
Electric Shock caused by faulty wiring
Electric shock can be the result of faulty wiring, overloaded sockets, badly maintained equipment and water damage. Electric shock injuries can range from minor to severe and an individual could be left with permanent damage.
If a claimant has received an electric shock injury due to someone else's negligence, for example an electrician, it may be possible to make a personal injury compensation claim.
The amount of compensation available will be dependent on the severity of the injury and the overall effect of the incident i.e recovery time or inability to work. Compensation can also be claimed for medical expenses and any other costs incurred as a result of the accident.
Fire caused by faulty wiring
A fire can leave permanent damage to a household and leave an individual with life changing injuries. If an individual has suffered a fire related injury that was caused by inadequate or dangerous electrical work made by another person then the claimant has every right to seek compensation from those responsible.
Again, the compensation payment will be dependent on the type of the injury and the overall effect of the incident.
