If you were injured shopping or out in a market, you may be looking for credible market stall injury advice. Perhaps you were injured by someone else visiting the market, or because the marketplace was unsafe. You may not realise it, but when you visit a public space such as a market, the local authority or market organisers have a duty of care towards you.
If it can be shown, for example, that your market stall accident happened because of a breach of health and safety regulations, you may be in a strong position to start a market stall injury claim. To find out more about your legal rights and to get market stall injury advice tailored to your needs, contact the personal injury specialists at Accident Advice Helpline today.
Your market stall injury
Visiting a market, you are unlikely to be too concerned with your personal well-being. Most market stalls are of course safe and well looked after, meaning you do not have to worry about keeping yourself safe. Markets tend to be low-risk, and even if things can go wrong, the risks involved tend to be non-hazardous.
That said, you could have been injured in a market stall accident, with a potentially long-lasting physical or psychological effect. You could have been injured because the market stall collapsed, trapping you or injuring you by falling on you. You may have a potential right to claim compensation if it can be shown that this was the result of the market stallholder’s actions or negligence.
You could also have been injured because the market was held on dangerous grounds, or because its organisers failed to ensure your health and safety. Again, if this negligence can be proven, you may have a potentially strong claim to compensation. To find out more about health and safety regulations as they might apply to your case, and for more personalised market stall injury advice, call our experts today at Accident Advice Helpline.
