Shopping is a passion for some people, and nothing more than a necessity for others. However, regardless of which category you fall into, the last thing you’d want or expect would be to come back home with some kind of injury.
Fortunately, the people in charge of managing and running department stores know how important it is to make sure their customers are always safe. This means they must provide a safe place for them to shop at. Every area of the department store that is open to the public should be safe and should not contravene the health and safety laws in any way.
Various injuries you could sustain in a department store
In most cases, slips, trips and falls are right up there at the top of the list of potential mishaps that can lead to injuries. As you might imagine, sprains, cuts, bruises and even broken bones can all come under the heading of injuries you could sustain in a department store. Few people will ever experience even one of these injuries, but you just never know what might potentially happen.
Some examples of how these injuries may potentially occur include faulty or overloaded shelving that collapses on a customer. A wet floor that is not signed as such could lead someone to slip over. A rucked up or torn carpet could cause someone to trip and fall. As you can see, there are a myriad of things that could potentially occur.
Was someone else to blame?
