Defective Furniture and Beds
Compensation for furniture/bed related Injuries
A common, but often overlooked, cause of injuries is the furniture we trust to provide comfort and safety in our homes. From faulty mattresses to sharp edges, furniture-related accidents can lead to serious injuries. If you’ve been injured due to furniture defects, you may be entitled to compensation on a No Win, No Fee basis.
Faulty Mattresses and Toxic Substances
A good night’s sleep is essential for our well-being. However, when a mattress is defective, it can result in more than just a restless night. Faulty mattresses can cause back pain, exacerbate existing health issues, and even lead to toxic exposure. Some mattresses are manufactured with cheap, harmful substances that can pose health risks. If you’ve suffered injuries or health problems due to a defective or faulty mattress, contact the experts at Russell Worth solicitors and see if we can help you get the compensation you deserve.
Sharp Edges and Exposed Nails or Screws
Furniture with sharp edges or exposed nails or screws can pose serious risks, especially in homes with children. A seemingly innocent piece of furniture can become a hazard when it’s not manufactured, assembled or maintained correctly. If you or a loved one has been injured due to these hazards the Russell Worth solicitors are here to help.
Furniture Not Secured to Walls
This commonly relates to kitchen or bathroom wall units but throughout a building, the securing of furniture to walls is a critical safety measure. Unsecured furniture can easily tip over and cause injuries, particularly if children are climbing or playing around it. If you or a family member has been injured because of unsecured furniture, it’s crucial you understand your rights in order seek the compensation you deserve.
Springs in Chairs or Sofas
While we expect our chairs and sofas to provide comfort, poorly manufactured furniture can contain springs that may malfunction. These malfunctioning springs can cause serious injuries. If you’ve experienced injuries related to furniture defects, don’t hesitate to consult with the legal experts at Russell Worth who can help you pursue a No Win, No Fee compensation claim.
General defects in furniture can encompass a wide range of issues, from unstable legs to structural weaknesses. If a defective piece of furniture has caused you harm, you shouldn’t be left to deal with the consequences alone. Our highly trained and experienced solicitors can guide you through the claim process and assist you in gaining compensation for your injuries.
Injuries caused by furniture and beds due to defects are more common than you might think. If you have been injured in such an incident, then you may be able to claim compensation on a no win no fee basis. Contact Russell Worth solicitors today and let us talk you through your options without obligation.
