Have you been injured whilst out shopping?
Although many cities and towns now have large shopping malls to cater for shoppers, many have also retained a high street. In London, in particular, many of the well-known shops are located on standard roads and remain uncovered, rather than enclosed in a shopping mall environment.
Whilst shopping malls do have their advantages, many people prefer to shop in the high street or at independent local shops. Wherever you shop, however, you’ll want to make sure that you’re free from danger and the risk of injury.
When shops are at their busiest, there can be plenty of people browsing and queuing up to pay for their items. On particularly busy days, such as at weekends and in the lead up to Christmas, it can even be difficult to make your way through the hordes of other shoppers.
Due to this, it’s easy for people to trip over discarded items or bags that people have left on the floor. Similarly, when shopping in the high street, people are required to navigate the streets. If pavements aren’t maintained properly, people could be at risk of tripping over a paving stone or a loose kerb stone.
