    How to claim shop floor injury compensation

    A shop floor can be a very busy place to be, regardless of whether you are a customer browsing the store or a member of staff going about their business. Most stores take every opportunity to ensure the shop floor is a safe place to be – as they should do with regard to health and safety matters. No one should be put in a position where they might be injured in some way.

    Given the hundreds of thousands of people who are in shops of all kinds every day, it is good to know very few injuries ever happen on the shop floor. However we all know things can happen, and there are instances where someone might be hurt when on a shop floor. This could apply to a customer who is walking around the shop, or to staff who are working there.

    How can injuries happen?

    There are all kinds of ways an injury could be sustained by someone in a shop. When the weather is bad outside there is a chance that someone could be injured by slipping over on a wet floor if nothing is done to prevent this from happening. Similarly the flooring might not be in good-enough condition for people to walk on. If it is not replaced or repaired, this could provide a trip hazard. Stock might also be left out and may therefore cause a potential hazard for someone if they were to trip over it.

    Situations like these could potentially result in shop floor injury compensation being paid to the injured party. However for this to happen, a solid claim must be made by the person who has been hurt. This is something a professional injury compensation lawyer would typically handle on their behalf.

    Could you get shop floor injury compensation?

    You may be wondering whether you could be entitled to such compensation if you’ve been hurt while working on a shop floor, or while browsing or buying in a store. You don’t have to find out yourself because you can ask one of our experts to assess your situation for you.
