    Compensation for an accident in a designer outlet


    Lots of people like to visit designer outlets from time to time. These generally have several shops each representing a different designer name. You can go from one to the next without having to travel miles in between them, since they are all within one retail park or under one roof.

    These shops also give you the opportunity to enjoy buying designer names without paying the usual high price tags. This is because the items sold in these stores are not usually available in the main stores. They could be end-of-line items or those that are slight seconds in some way.

    A great experience – or not?

    All in all this is usually a nice experience and a good place to go shopping for designer brands. However there might be the odd occasion where someone has an accident in a designer outlet. It is rare to be sure, but this doesn’t mean it doesn’t ever happen. There could be occasions where the standards inside a shop are perhaps not quite as good as they should be.

    Examples of occasions where an accident in a designer outlet could potentially happen might include slips, trips and falls. These are usually the more common incidents that could potentially occur anywhere. For example there could be something spilled on the floor but not cleaned up. The cleaner could alternatively mop the floor and not leave warning signs out, making it potentially slippery in the process yet no one would know.

    Could anything else happen?

    Certainly, although it should be pointed out that occasions where accidents like this happen are rare in all circumstances. For instance there are situations where racks of clothing could collapse on top of a customer, or shelving could collapse because it has been overloaded to some degree.

    Similarly, stock could be left on the floor ready to unpack, causing a potential tripping hazard for someone who walks by.

    Perhaps most important of all is the need to contact a professional injury compensation lawyer within three years of suffering an accident you believe was someone else’s fault.
