    Compensation for advertising board accidents

    Compensation for advertising board accidents

    Every business has to advertise its wares, otherwise it may find itself with too few customers to sustain its everyday operations. There are many ways to advertise a business; in the case of those operating out of bricks and mortar shop premises, one such method is to use signage close to the business itself. For example, advertising boards can work well in this sense, since the shop owner can write on them or have them made specially to look as professional as possible.

    Unfortunately, there have been cases where advertising boards have ended up causing people injuries. While this is thankfully uncommon, Accident Advice Helpline have spoken to people who have tripped over advertising boards or been hit by a board that was not sufficiently attached to a building.

    Safety and advertising boards

    Obviously, the most important element to bear in mind here is safety. Regardless of the type of advertising board a shop owner uses, it must be safe and not pose any potential danger to anyone. A-boards – the boards you see quite often in the high street – must be approved by the council and used according to their rules and regulations. They must not obstruct the footpath or pavement and they shouldn’t pose any risks to pedestrians.

    There have been a few cases with which Accident Advice Helpline have dealt that have involved people who are partially-sighted tripping over boards they could not easily see. Some people have launched no win no fee* cases with us in order to ensure that they have a chance to get compensation in these situations.

    Painful injuries

    Any trip, slip or fall can result in a painful injury. Imagine knocking into an advertising board or experiencing any other kinds of advertising board accidents and taking a fall. While your injuries may not be very serious, they can still be painful.
