    How to claim shop fall compensation


    For many people, the first thing they would associate with any type of fall would be embarrassment. However this is possibly the best outcome.

    For some people, the outcome is to suffer one or more injuries that could be unpleasant, painful and possibly long-term in the way they affect their lives.

    The team at Accident Advice Helpline has come across a selection of cases whereby people have been hurt because they have fallen in a shop. This might incur falling down a set of stairs, falling over in a spillage or tripping and falling over an obstruction of some kind on the shop floor.

    In any event, such an accident can lead to a nasty injury for the person involved. Cuts, bruises, broken bones and sprains can all potentially result from a fall, depending on the circumstances involved.

    How easy is it to claim shop fall compensation?

    The primary factor is to determine whether another individual was responsible for letting the accident happen. For example, the owner of the shop has a duty to make sure the premises are safe.

    They should ensure the floors are cleaned regularly and kept free of potential obstructions. There should be no stock on the floor where it might be tripped over.

    If you fall over in a shop and you think it was the fault of the shop, it is worth finding out whether this was in fact the case. This can sometimes be difficult to do alone. That’s why a no win, no fee* claims procedure could be the way to go.
