Typical florist accidents
You might not realise it, but florists’ shops can be hazardous places. These are just a few of the type of accidents we are told about frequently:
- Cutting or stabbing injuries from shears, thorns or bamboo cane.
- Slips and falls caused by wet floors where there were no warning notices.
- Poisoning from chemical sprays or disinfectants.
- Injuries from being hit by falling trays, pots or vases that had been badly stacked.
It is only possible to claim compensation if you did not cause your accident yourself. For example, if you fall because there were loose leaves on the floor, you may very well have a case. You are not expected to be 100% cautious all the time – just to conduct yourself as a reasonable person would.
Because there needs to be a medical record of your injuries to back up your story, you can only claim for compensation if you saw a doctor about your injuries. Most claims need to be made within three years after the accident happens, unless it is a child who is injured, in which case a claim can be made on their behalf at any time before they turn 18 years of age.
Why make a claim?
Claiming compensation is not about trying to get rich, rather it is about getting the money you need to help you cope with the consequences of your accident. For instance, if you need to take time off work, compensation can make sure you do not lose out financially.
If you are left with a disability, it can help you adapt your home to make it easier for you to retain your independence.
Claiming can also ensure that the problems that caused your accident are properly addressed, helping to keep other people safer in the future.
