Whether you’re shopping for a birthday or Christmas present or just need to get the latest ‘Frozen’ toys and accessories for your child, there are toy stores across the country stocking every single toy you could imagine – and they’re usually pretty busy places, particularly in the run-up to Christmas. If you’re not a fan of crowds, avoiding toy shops during peak periods is a great idea, but you could be injured in a toy store at any time of year. If you’re wondering whether you’re eligible to claim toy shop injury compensation for injuries sustained by yourself or your child, then Accident Advice Helpline can come to the rescue. Get confidential, no-obligation advice from our expert advisors at any time by giving us a call.
How have you been injured?
Whether you’ve been clobbered by a LEGO box falling off a shelf or slipped on a bouncy ball, Accident Advice Helpline could help you claim toy shop injury compensation – here are just a few of the types of accidents we have handled claims for in the past:
- Slips and trips – for example tripping over boxes left in the aisles or slipping on spilt liquids, such as bubble liquid or even drinks
- Shelves or display stands falling on you
- Toys and boxes falling from height, causing head and facial injuries
- Injured by faulty toys or display equipment
- Electric shock from a faulty toy
- Injured by another customer, such as a child throwing a ball which hits you in the face
- Injured by crowds in the store rushing to get the latest toy
OK, so toy stores are hardly the most dangerous place in the world, but as you can see there are a number of different types of accidents which could leave you or your child injured. If your child has been injured by a faulty toy, it could be the manufacturers who are held liable, whilst if you’ve suffered head injuries after a display stand has fallen on you, the store owners could be at fault.
