Accidents in shops
Shopping is a bit like marmite – you either love it or you hate it. Clothes shopping might be fun, while grocery shopping is a necessary evil. However, whatever your stance is on the enjoyment factor the least you expect is that you are not going to get injured as a result of a shopping trip. However, for hundreds of people every year this is precisely what happens and as a result they find themselves making accident and injury claims in Stroud.
Such claims are available to them because not only is it a moral right to expect that you won’t be injured whilst in a public place, but it is also a legal right. The owners and managers of shops (and other public venues) have a recognisable duty of care to do all they can to make sure that accidents do not happen. When they do happen, and they are found to be at fault, then they must be held accountable.
