    Compensation for injured clothes shop staff

    Every day plenty of people go to work in a clothes shop of some kind. It could be a high-end clothing shop or a bargain basement store. Either way the people working there would have every right to work in complete safety at all times.

    This is mainly due to the responsibilities their employers have to keep them safe. The Health and Safety at Work Act covers this kind of situation and these requirements. As such there should be a minimal chance of injured clothes shop staff being hurt because of the negligence of their employer.

    Examples of what could potentially happen

    If you work in a clothes shop you will be likely to serve customers as well as managing a variety of other duties. For example you might be asked to unpack stock during the course of the average day. You may have to check the stock, price it and then put it on display for people to buy. This might involve moving heavy boxes or lifting them from one area to another.

    This is why so many people working in shops are given manual handling training. Injuries can so easily happen if you do not know the right way to lift or move a box. If you haven’t been trained and you’ve been injured in a similar way, you could have a chance to claim compensation for those injuries.

    Could you be hurt in some other way?

    Accidents can happen in all manner of ways, as we all know. The crux of the issue is whether someone else was responsible. For example did you slip because someone had spilt something and hadn’t cleaned it up? Did you suffer repetitive strain injury from using the till for hours at a time without a proper break? Did you end up having an accident when overloaded shelving came down on top of you?

    Sometimes it is easier than others to tell whether you have a good chance to make a compensation claim. Whatever situation you are in, you should contact Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500 to determine whether you could claim any compensation for your injuries.

    The more proof you have that negligence did indeed occur, the better the odds are of success. However, call us now to see if we can help you make a no win, no fee* claim for compensation.
