    Compensation for retail staff fall injuries


    Have you suffered injuries after a slip, trip or fall when working in a shop? You might not think that retail stores are the most dangerous environments – in fact, when health and safety regulations are followed they’re actually pretty safe places – but accidents have the potential to happen any time, anywhere. If you’ve suffered retail staff fall injuries after a fall at work, what can you do about it?

    It might be that your employer has breached health and safety regulations or been negligent, causing your accident and subsequent injuries. If this has happened to you, there’s no reason why you should be the one to suffer, and you might want to consider making a personal injury claim with Accident Advice Helpline. Don’t worry about expensive legal fees – our lawyers work on a 100% no win, no fee* basis, so there are no upfront fees to add to your worries.

    Serious fall injuries

    Working in retail, there are a number of hazards which could lead to a fall. Perhaps you’ve fallen off a ladder whilst climbing to check or replenish stock? Maybe you have fallen downstairs due to a broken stair or boxes of stock left lying around in the stairwell.

    You could even have slipped on a wet floor or tripped on damaged flooring and falling, suffering serious injuries. Retail staff fall injuries can range from minor – cuts, bruises, strains and sprains – to more serious, life-changing injures such as back injuries, complex fractures and head injuries.

    If you hit your head on the floor or a counter as you fall, you could suffer a head or brain injury. These types of injuries can affect your mood and behaviour as well as your motor skills and you might find you need specialist treatment and are unable to return to your job.

    In some cases, those who have suffered a brain injury are unable to care for themselves and may need modifications made to their home and nursing care to enable them to remain independent. This all costs money – which is something you could be short of if you’ve taken time off work after your accident.

    You deserve to be compensated

    Whether you have fallen after tripping on a clothes hanger on the floor or tripped downstairs at work and sustained head injuries, Accident Advice Helpline is here to help you claim the compensation you deserve.
