Most of us would probably enjoy exploring in a toy shop, no matter what age we are. If we have a child or grandchild we may enjoy it even more, as we have the chance to buy them things to enjoy.
It is sensible to take care while walking through a toy shop as there are likely to be lots of shelves and displays featuring all kinds of toys. However it is also right to say that toy shop injuries should be kept to a minimum if all the relevant health and safety laws are in operation in the proper manner.
Has something like this happened to you?
You may be reading this because you have already suffered from toy shop injuries of some kind. As such you might be nursing an injury that was caused in the recent past, perhaps by shelving that collapsed on you, or stock that you tripped over because it was blocking the way along the aisle you were walking along. Maybe you tripped because your foot got caught in a section of flooring that had been ripped and ignored, instead of being replaced or repaired.
Accident Advice Helpline has dealt with all manner of cases over the years where people have been injured while in a shop of some kind. Every case will vary depending on the exact circumstances that caused the accident to happen. Neglect is definitely an area we tend to look at, since negligence can make a compensation claim easier to argue.
Are you in a good position to make a claim?
Toy shop injuries might be relatively minor, incurring injuries that will heal fully in their own time. They might also be more serious in some isolated cases. If this is true the person affected could end up having trouble doing certain things, depending on how their injuries have affected them.
