What Are The Typical Causes Of Accidents In Shops?
Accidents in shops most commonly involve slips on wet floors, trips over obstacles and obstructions in aisles, products falling from shelves, and accidents outdoors caused by, for example, black ice, broken glass or potholes in shop car parks. Slipping accidents are often the result of spillages or recently cleaned floors which have not been dried properly. Trips and falls may be the result of poor maintenance, such as a pothole in a car park, or discarded cardboard packaging materials in shopping aisles. Automatic doors, escalators and travelators may also cause accidents due to malfunctions or poor maintenance.
Steps To Take Following An Accident In A Shop
If you have been involved in an accident at a shop, the first step to take is to report the incident to the store’s manager or a member of staff. Secondly, (if possible) photos should be taken of the specific cause of the accident and the resulting injuries. Thirdly, the details of any witnesses to the accident should be taken, as your solicitor may need to contact them to provide a statement at a later date. Finally, the injured party should seek medical attention from a GP or hospital at the earliest opportunity, both for their own well-being and to ensure that their injuries are properly documented.
The Importance Of Seeking Legal Advice
It is important to seek legal advice at the earliest opportunity. Retailers hold mandatory public liability insurance policies to cover them in the event of customers getting injured on their premises. Your solicitor will send a letter of claim to their insurers laying out the grounds for why you are due compensation, and will negotiate a settlement with them directly. CCTV footage will often help in establishing the precise circumstances of an incident, as will photographs and witness statements. Shops are also legally obliged to record details of accidents in an official accident book, and this can help establish whether similar incidents have occurred in the recent past.
