Have you had an accident in Carmarthen whilst you were out shopping?
Although online and mail order shopping can be convenient, many people still choose to shop in the traditional way. Whilst many people use online shopping for some items, most people supplement this with shopping at a supermarket, shopping mall or on the high street.
Whilst there are fewer independent shops still in business today, many high streets are still thriving. Although these shops may be smaller than the larger superstores, they are still subject to the same laws and regulations. For example, they must ensure the safety of both their workers and their customers whilst they are on business premises.
If you were to enter a store and suffer an injury or an accident in Carmarthen, they could potentially be liable for your injuries if they were held to be responsible. Whilst they may not have intended to hurt you, if they left stock out on the floor or they failed to warn people about uneven or damaged flooring and someone was hurt, they could end up having to pay out large amounts of compensation.
Fortunately, most shops and businesses have public liability insurance in place so that their insurers will pay out the relevant compensation awards if someone is hurt on their premises. As most stores now have CCTV in place, you may even find that the incident has been caught on camera which could make it easier for you to make a compensation claim following an accident in Carmarthen.
If you are thinking of making a compensation claim after an accident in Carmarthen and you know the premises does have CCTV installed, it’s important to inform your personal injury lawyers or solicitors. They may be able to access the footage which could help you to prove who was responsible for your injuries and who should, therefore, be required to pay you compensation.
If your injury happened whilst you were in a larger store or shopping mall, there’s no need to be put off making a claim. Your injury can still constitute an accident in Carmarthen and the company or person responsible can still be required to pay you compensation for your injuries.
