Shopping centres in the UK are a great invention, especially when it comes to those cold British winters where the last thing you want to be doing is walking along the high street. Home to all your favourite stores, shopping centres are convenient and usually offer parking for shoppers, so everything you need is under one roof.
But an accident in a shopping centre could happen all too easily, and you may be left wondering who’s to blame if you have been injured? We can help you ascertain who is at fault and make a claim for personal injury compensation – Accident Advice Helpline has been in business for 15 years, and during that time we have helped hundreds of people just like you.
Have you suffered loss of earnings?
If you’ve fallen from a faulty escalator, slipped on a wet floor in the food court or been injured after tripping on an uneven surface in the multi-storey car park at your local shopping centre, you may find you need time off work to recover from your injuries. Slips, trips, and falls can lead to serious injuries including back and spinal injuries, head injuries, torn ligaments and broken bones. Whilst you’re off work, loss of wages will probably affect you and your family financially, which could make your recovery period more stressful than you’d like.
By claiming personal injury compensation after an accident in a shopping centre, you could receive a payout which will help to cover your household bills and living expenses until you’re ready to return to work. Our personal injury lawyers work on a 100% no win, no fee* basis, so you can make a claim without having to stump up cash for expensive legal fees upfront.
Who’s at fault?
If you’re injured in an accident in a shopping centre, whether you slip on a wet floor in the bathroom or catch your heel in a loose floor tile and fall, then the shopping centre owner could be held liable, as it’s their duty to ensure the premises are safe for members of the public.
Over the years we have helped our customers to claim compensation after accidents in public places, including shopping centres, leisure centres and cinemas – and we could help you too. Just call Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500 for confidential, no-obligation advice and to find out whether you’re eligible to make a claim.
