Compensation for an accident in a shop

Shopping is an essential part of life, and for many people it’s something that they enjoy. Whether you like it or not, food shopping, clothes shopping and other types of shopping are something that are done on a regular basis – but the last thing that you often expect to result from this is an injury.

Although in most situations shops are safe and well-maintained, this is not always the case and in some areas neglect can lead to potential hazards and therefore potential injuries to customers. If you are injured while shopping through either a slippery floor surface or a hazard in the shop environment then you could be eligible to make a compensation claim to cover any injuries that you have incurred. 

How could I sustain an injury in a shop?

There are a number of situations where you could be injured in a shop environment and these include:

  • Slips and trips over items which have been left around
  • Slips and trips over liquids which have been spilt on the floor
  • Injuries sustained in the changing rooms
  • Injuries caused by the neglect of another shopper
  • Injuries sustained through the direct negligence of a shopkeeper

Who could I claim against?

If you are injured while shopping then there are a number of people who you may consider making a personal injury claim against. If your injury was caused directly through the negligence of a shopkeeper who may have left hazardous equipment lying around or perhaps failed to clean a spill off the floor, you could claim against them. Alternately, if you have been injured through the direct negligence of another shopper or a member of the public, you could consider making a compensation claim against them instead.
