    Can I claim for an accident when rushing to a shop sale?


    Having an accident during a sale may make you wonder, ‘Can I claim for an accident when rushing to a shop sale?’ Accident Advice Helpline can assist you with this question. The answer to this will depend a great deal on the circumstances of the accident, but if you were put in a position where you were at risk and those in control did nothing about it, then you may have grounds to make a claim. Everybody knows that a shop sale can be a dangerous place – there is nothing more frantic than a shopper who senses a bargain getting away from him or her! There is often a mob of people and you could find that you are battling through crowds. It is actually the shopkeeper’s responsibility to make sure that all shoppers are safe.

    Why would I need to make a claim?

    If the shopkeeper has not taken measures to make sure that people are safe when they are shopping, then you could make a claim against their liability insurance. An injury while being caught in a crush could be very serious, and you might need to spend time in hospital or even take a lot of time off work while you recover. If this is the case then you could find that your income has dropped as a result, and this is not a fair situation to be in when you were only injured because somebody else did not do his or her job properly.

    A personal injury claim could bring you the financial compensation that you need to make a difference in your income. It could meet the shortfall in your earnings caused by your time off work, and refund monies that you have had to pay out for things like prescriptions and travel to your medical appointments.

    Can I make a claim myself?

    Trying to initiate legal action without the help of experts could be very difficult, and this is why it is important to get a good law firm on your side. Accident Advice Helpline is a law firm that was established many years ago and we have all the expertise that you need. From our experienced and friendly advisors to our team of personal injury solicitors, your claim is always in good hands.

Add to this the fact that we work on a no-win, no-fee** basis and you are far better off speaking to us than anyone else.
