    How to claim shopping centre injury compensation

    Spending some time in a shopping centre should be a good experience. It gives you time to do some window shopping, explore the local shops and get any essentials you might have on your list. You’d expect any shopping centre to be safe to use though, with minimal opportunities to suffer an accident of any kind.

    While accidents can simply happen and not be anyone’s fault, there are occasions when things can happen that are down to negligence on the part of someone else. For example, you would reasonably expect the floor of the shopping centre to be clean and safe to walk on. If it is wet or slippery in any area and this causes you to fall and hurt yourself, this might reasonably lead to shopping centre injury compensation being paid.

    Is it likely an injury could lead to compensation?

    It will depend on the individual circumstances surrounding the injury you have sustained. For compensation to be paid out, the shopping centre (or those in charge of it) must be proven negligent in some way. This is why many people consult professional injury compensation lawyers, so they can get the proper advice and support in a situation where they have received an injury.

    Once negligence has been proven, it is necessary to determine the extent of the injury and whether or not it might lead to mobility or other problems in the future. As a rule of thumb, the more serious an injury is, the more likely it is to incur a higher payout. This is because of the knock-on effect that injury could have on the person’s life.

    Could you be entitled to receive any compensation?

    If you have been injured while in a shopping centre and that injury occurred within the last three years, you could have an opportunity to get shopping centre injury compensation. Of course your main thought will be of your injury and how serious it is, which is why you should seek medical advice and support before doing anything else.
