Shopping centres are great when it comes to convenience – all your favourite stores under one roof, so you can shop ‘til you drop and find a parking space too. You could even have lunch or dinner whilst you’re there or visit the cinema with the kids.
Such busy environments see thousands of customers visiting every day, and this could put you at risk of personal injury in a shopping centre.
What kind of injuries have you suffered?
When we talk about personal injury in a shopping centre, what kind of injuries could be suffered?
- Broken bones
- Slip, trip or fall injuries (such as strains or sprains)
- Head injuries – after a trip or fall from height
- Food poisoning after dining at the food court or restaurants
- Cuts and lacerations, for example from broken clothes hangers or fittings in a retail shop
- Electrocution from faulty electrical items
- Allergic reaction to products tested in a beauty department
- Head injuries (after products fall from a display unit or shelf)
Injuries are often the result of poor safety measures or a lack of cleaning and maintenance, which means that most injuries can be avoided. Shop and shopping centre owners have a duty to ensure that you’re safe whilst you are shopping with them, but this duty is not always met.
