    DIY store accidents: Overloaded trolleys


    DIY store accidents: Overloaded trolleys

    DIY stores are extremely convenient when you need something specific like a particular colour of paint, a new tool kit or a new chandelier. However, as we all know, trolleys can either be a tremendous source of convenience or tremendously inconvenient.

    A wonky trolley can wreak havoc on your shopping

    You should be careful not to overload your trolley, as this can increase the risk of accidents and injuries to yourself or to others. Of course, when browsing a DIY shop or a supermarket, there are few things more irritating than a wonky trolley. They can be difficult to move and can often have a mind of their own, turning right when you want to turn left, or hardly moving at all.

    Have you been injured in a trolley accident that was not your fault?

    All DIY stores have a duty to ensure that their trolleys are in a good working order and do not present a safety risk to customers. Indeed, workplace managers also have a duty to enact health and safety measures to keep work accidents to a minimum, just as manual handling businesses must protect their customers from industrial injuries and having to seek repetitive strain injury compensation.
