Where would we be without convenience stores? Handy for picking up a pint of milk, grabbing a copy of today’s newspaper or even buying a lottery ticket, your local convenience store is just that – convenient. But there are hazards lurking in even the safest convenience store which could easily cause an accident, and if you have been injured, it’s possible you could claim convenience store injury compensation. There is a three-year time limit for personal injury claims, so get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline as soon as possible after your accident, to find out if you could make a claim.
Don’t cry over spilt milk
Spilt milk (or any kind of spilt liquid) could actually pose a real hazard in a convenience store, as you could slip on a wet floor and suffer serious injuries. If you bang your head on shelves as you fall, or if you hit a shelving unit and heavy tins fall onto you, you could be even more seriously injured. But that’s not the only way you could be injured in a convenience store. You could suffer lacerations from damaged shelves or goods, be injured if shelves collapse or suffer food poisoning from food which is out of date or has not been stored at the correct temperature.
Whatever has happened, the convenience store owner could be held liable for your injuries and you could claim convenience store injury compensation.
