Whenever you go shopping you would usually have a list with you of things you want to get and do. You certainly wouldn’t expect to add an accident to that list. Shopping centre-based accidents are quite rare, given the hundreds of thousands of people who go shopping each day. However there are occasions when things go wrong, and when they do they can leave people nursing some injuries as a result.
This may have happened to you recently as well. You might be wondering whether your injuries deserve shopping centre accident compensation to be paid. You may be right in this respect, but it is important to have your situation assessed by a legal expert before taking things any further.
What can happen at a shopping centre?
Slips, trips and falls are perhaps among the more common accidents that might happen, as is the case wherever you go. You might also be involved in an accident if something falls from a shelf while you are shopping and hits you, causing an injury of some kind. In the worst cases people can be hurt by poorly-constructed shelving that collapses onto them, or that has not been properly attached to the wall.
Perhaps something like this happened to you, and if so, there might be a chance you could indeed get some shopping centre accident compensation. Your case would be considered and assessed to see whether there is evidence that someone else exhibited negligence of some kind. If this is true, you could possibly make a strong claim.
How much could you win?
This all depends on the injury (or injuries) you suffered, which part or parts of the body were affected, and how bad the injuries were. You might also be able to claim back any costs associated with those injuries, such as the cost of travelling to hospital appointments and so on.
