Common florist injuries
Although we think of them as cheerful, friendly places, accidents in florists’ shops are not uncommon. Because they need to be moist environments to keep plants healthy, wet floors are a common cause of people slipping and falling. Bamboo cane, often used to support plants, can be a nasty thing to fall against, and if it has not been filed at the ends it can also injure customers who are just looking through the plants. Thorned plants like roses can also be hazardous and plant pots and vases can be dangerous if they fall after being badly positioned on shelves.
Florist shops also include many things that can be hazardous to children, such as cutting shears and containers of water with detergent in. Although you have a responsibility to supervise your children, if such items are left in places they can easily access and where you would not reasonably expect there to be danger, you may be able to claim compensation for your child if injury occurs. Our team can help you work out if this is an option for you.
The rules of making a claim
When individuals seek florist injury advice from us they often want to know what makes a claim legally possible and the basic rules around this are fairly simple. You will only be able to claim if a doctor has treated your injuries, and there needs to be a medical record to back up your story. The injury must not have been your fault and your compensation claim must be made within three years from the date of your accident. If your child is injured, you can claim on their behalf at any point before they turn 18 years old.
