Across the UK, regular indoor markets are great places to pick up a bargain. Some specialise in local fresh fruit and vegetables, others sell produce from farms in the area and there are those which sell clothes, art, crafts and bric-a-brac too. A trip to your local indoor market is a great day out and you’re sure to find something to tempt you to part with your hard-earned cash. Most of us probably don’t ever stop to think about the possibility of being injured in an accident at a market, but if this has happened to you and somebody else is to blame, you could seek indoor market injury compensation advice from a personal injury lawyer.
What’s the worst that could happen?
You’d be surprised at how many different hazards are lurking at your average indoor market. Slips, trips and falls are amongst the most common types of accidents to happen at indoor markets – you could slip on produce or a spillage on the floor or trip over boxes of stock left lying around or trailing cables for lights and other appliances. You could even be hit by objects falling from height, such as banners, signs or lighting. You could suffer food poisoning after eating food prepared at an indoor market, for example snacks from a street food stall too.
