Can You Sue Your Electrician For A Job Done Badly?

Yes, you can claim compensation from an electrician. If you are unhappy with the service you received from the electrician, you can take it to court. Let me show you how.

Before settling on that electrician, you had probably done extensive research, and based on your findings, the electrician was best suited for you. However, things did not turn out as planned. The work was either substandard, the price hiked, or it could be the electrician failed to see the job to completion.

Instances when you can sue

If you signed a contract, any action that will affect the form of service delivery affects the terms of the agreement; hence, the electrician will be at fault for breaching the contract. Also, if the mistake is due to the electrician being fraudulent, that is enough reason to sue.

The electrician must ensure that the terms of service agreed to by the building owner will be delivered. In which case, if the contrary happens, he will be held accountable for a breach of contract.  For instance, if a smoke alarm installation isn’t perfect, it can have dire consequences.

If an electrician misrepresents the fact about the true nature of the quality of materials he used, it amounts to fraud.

What happens when you sue?

You can sue in a small claims court or a civil court. If you choose the former, you will have to gather all the necessary information about the electrician and the work you hired him to do. First, you must be aware of the legal names of the electrician. Ensure that the contract you both signed has the work information outlined.  Additional information such as receipts, invoices, and canceled checks are also vital.

It is vital to know the business name of the electrician. Also, ensure you know if the small claim court can offer the damages you want. After obtaining the small claims court paperwork and filling it, the electrician will receive a summons. Make sure to attend hearings because if you default, it will amount to your case’s dismissal.

You can opt for civil court in the instance where you are want to make the electrician perform a specific action stipulated in the contract, e.g., a failure to inspect the site after work. Here you will need the help of an attorney. Your attorney will draft a complaint, file it, and after that, the discovery and disposition stage will begin, after which you will proceed to trial.

However, you can opt for settlement or alternative dispute resolution. The former happens before trial if the electrician admits he is at fault and agrees to settle the matter.  The latter occurs when the case has proceeded to trial. At any given point during the trial, the parties might opt for alternative dispute resolution and settle their dispute out of court. Settlements are way convenient.

To wrap it up

Proper knowledge of your electrician is critical to avoid legal claims because they are time consuming and exhausting.

In today’s world, accidents seem inevitable. It’s also common getting injured as a result. One thing you should note, however, is that getting hurt due to someone else’s fault or having to suffer huge amounts of losses due to heavy medical bills, loss of salary and emotional trauma is unjust. Thankfully, you can obtain complete justice through compensation lawyers. Where negotiations with the party responsible for such actions fail, then going to court will be the next option. At the same time, when you fail to claim the compensation amount or need help getting one, the last option you’ll need is a compensation lawyer.

If you personally suffer any type of work-related injuries and find it difficult to gain compensation awards, the perfect person who can help you is the worker compensation lawyer. Compensation lawyers Adelaide understand legal complexities and can help you learn all your rights and responsibilities under the law.

These lawyers are in principle your case on a contingency basis. This means that you will receive the first consultation free. During this phase, you will discover if your claim is viable. If valid, the lawyer will then begin negotiations on your behalf without the need for you to put money up front. There is normally an amount or percentage of any settlement is agreed that treatment will go to your lawyer file. Statistics show that applications processed by a law firm have a much greater success rate and bigger prices paid as an individual working on their own may be able to achieve.

We Support Your Legal Rights

It is always recommended that you seek expert advice from Compensation lawyers as soon as you possibly can after an accident has occurred. This is because it is much easier to collect accurate information from witnesses shortly after an accident. There are time limits imposed on us lodging of applications (be aware these may differ from state to state and South Australia is no exception). You will need to get a professional medical evaluation of your injuries as this will determine whether there is a need for ongoing medical care and also to determine the extent of any injuries. The amount of time you will be away from work can also be evaluated from these reports and this continuous course of treatment is best for you to recover. You should therefore consider a compensation lawyer when you have been injured in the workplace.
