Are you making a claim with an accident solicitor in Rother because you’ve been injured in a DIY store?
Although accidents can occur in any type of shop or store, DIY shops can be particularly dangerous due to the type of products they stock. If you do sustain an injury whilst shopping and it wasn’t your fault, there’s a good chance that you will be able to obtain compensation with help from a personal injury law firm or an accident solicitor in Rother.
As most DIY shops stock a range of different products, you may visit to purchase anything from wallpaper and paint to electrical tools and machinery. Whilst most products can be ideal for home-use, they can be dangerous if they aren’t used properly or if they happen to be faulty.
However, how they are stored is also crucial to the safety of customers. For example, heavy products should be stored on the ground level or on shelving which is able to hold their weight. If they are balanced precariously on shelving, or stacked on a unit which can’t support them, they could fall or topple over and hurt someone.
Similarly, if products are left on the floor in a haphazard fashion, they could cause a customer or a member of staff to fall and sustain and injury.
If you have been injured whilst shopping in a DIY or hardware store and the incident wasn’t your fault, you may want to pursue a claim for compensation with help from an accident solicitor in Rother.
As most shops now have CCTV installed there is a good chance that the incident will have been caught on videotape and this could support your claim for compensation. Of course, you will need to have received some type of medical treatment if you hope to obtain compensation for your injuries.
