Have you been injured shopping for a new sofa or suffered injuries whilst bed hunting? Shopping for furniture can be stressful, it’s true, but did you ever stop to think that it could be a dangerous activity? Well, it’s not really, but there is the potential for accidents to happen in any type of retail store, and a furniture store is no exception. So if you have been injured whilst trying to furnish your home, why not think about making a claim for furniture store injury compensation? You could be awarded a personal injury settlement which could pay for medical expenses and help you to manage your household bills until you’re well enough to return to work.
What injuries could be suffered in a furniture store?
Accident Advice Helpline has helped hundreds of customers claim furniture store injury compensation since 2000 and we could help you too – but what injuries have you suffered?
- Strains, sprains or broken bones from a slip, trip or fall – for example tripping over furniture boxes left lying around or slipping on a wet floor
- Injured by faulty stock – such as lacerations from a broken mattress or chair or back injuries from an office chair that collapses when you sit on it
- Injured by objects falling from height, such as lamps or storage boxes
If you have suffered injuries such as broken bones or a head injury, you’ll probably need to take time off work to recover from your injuries. It might be that you’ve been seriously injured and will require medical treatment in hospital, and all that time off can affect your finances. Why not take the 30-second test on Accident Advice Helpline today, for an idea of how much compensation you could claim?
