    If you have sustained an injury in a shop accident for which you were not wholly at fault, you may be eligible to make a claim for personal injury compensation.

    Your eligibility to shop accident compensation

    In order to make a shop accident claim, you must have sustained an injury due to the negligence of the shop’s management. Therefore, before you can make a shop accident claim, you must ask a trained doctor to examine your injuries and record a diagnosis in your medical notes. Without a legitimate record of your injuries, you will not be eligible to make a shop accident claim.

    In addition to evidence of your injuries, you will also need to prove that your injuries occurred due to the negligence of the shop’s management. Negligence can manifest in a range of ways, from obstacles being left on the shop floor to an employee’s failure to adhere to health and safety regulations. All shops in Walkden should provide a safe environment in which to shop, and if they fail to do so and you sustain an injury, you will be eligible to file a shop accident claim.

    Receiving advice from a shop accident solicitor in Walkden

    It is always advisable to allow an experienced accident solicitor in Walkden to handle your claim, gather proof of negligence and draw up any paperwork. At Accident Advice Helpline we can ask our solicitors to provide no win, no fee legal representation, meaning that you will be able to pursue your compensation claim with the greatest of ease.

    Once we have established that you are eligible to claim shop accident compensation, we will match an accident solicitor in Walkden to your case and he or she will then compile a Letter of Claim, which will be sent to the shop to advise them that you are making a claim against them. Should the shop accept liability for your accident, your solicitor will enter into negotiations with the shop’s insurance company to obtain a fast and appropriate settlement. If the shop denies liability, your solicitor will take action to resolve your claim in court.
