Accidents in public places
Did you know that if you have had an accident in a public place you could be entitled to claim accident and injury compensation in Erewash, or wherever the accident occurred?
The simple fact of the matter is that the law provides protection to members of the public from being injured in an accident that were not their fault. While the law cannot obviously stop the accidents from occurring in the first place, they can arrange for compensation to be provided when you have been injured. In turn, this provides an extra incentive for individuals such as business owners, to do all they can to make sure that accidents are not likely to happen.
Whether it’s a clothes shopping spree, looking for a gift for a loved one or the standard weekly food shop, a lot of us spend a lot of our time in various retail units. For the most part we escape unscathed; however, shops such as supermarkets and even shoe stores can be dangerous places.
With stock piled high up on shelves, spillages causing the floors to become slippy and even items being left discarded, there are numerous opportunities for you to slip, trip, fall or be crushed.
If you do have an accident in just such an environment, and you feel that the accident was not your fault, then you could be entitled to seek accident and injury compensation in Erewash.
