    Compensation for trip injuries in a shopping centre


    Compensation for trip injuries in a shopping centre

    Whatever your favourite shop is, chances are you’ll find it in your local shopping centre. For convenience, shopping centres are great – all the shops, restaurants and cafes you could possibly need under one roof, and when it gets cold outside, shopping centres are a great alternative to traipsing the high street.

    But did you ever stop to think about the possibility of trip injuries in a shopping centre occurring? When you think about it, there are plenty of hazards in the average mall which could lead to an accident happening.

    You’re not alone

    If trip injuries in a shopping centre have affected you, you’re not alone. Since 2000, we’ve dealt with hundreds of similar claims and helped members of the public to claim compensation for their trip injuries, no matter how minor or severe. Accident Advice Helpline is proud to be endorsed by our patron, TV personality Dame Esther Rantzen, for our excellent customer service.

    But what sort of trip injuries could you suffer after a shopping centre accident? Broken bones, back injuries, head injuries and strains and sprains are all common, and any number of different scenarios could lead to an accident, for example:

    • Tripping on a moving escalator – for example if somebody pushes the emergency stop button
    • Tripping and falling down stairs
    • Tripping on damaged or loose flooring
    • Tripping over stock left lying around or cleaning equipment cables trailing across the floor

    Shopping centre owners have a responsibility to ensure the environment is a safe place for shoppers, and they could be held liable if you’re injured as a result of their failure to do so.

    Laying blame

    You may feel guilty about blaming somebody else after your accident, but if negligence has occurred and you’re not at fault, why should you be the one to suffer? After all, you’ll be the one taking time off work, in pain and paying for expensive prescription medication or medical treatment for your injuries, not them.

    Making a claim for personal injury compensation doesn’t just give you peace of mind, it could also help you get through a difficult financial time.

    So call Accident Advice Helpline on: 0800 689 0500 and see if you’re eligible to make a claim.
