Have you had an accident at work. Darlington accident at work compensation is available to you if you had an accident in the last three yeas that was not your fault. Perhaps you work in retail? Read on for more help.
Discount retailers are giving established retailers a jolly good run for their money at the moment. After years of austerity after the recession of the late 2000s, even the once aspiring middle classes now have more of a nose for a bargain.
In fact, these up-start discounters are giving the big supermarkets something of a headache, seriously eating into their profits and market share. More and more UK towns now benefit from the presence of a European discount supermarket or a shop that exclusively sells a range of items for a pound or slightly less.
These types of outlets have a philosophy of “stack-me-high, sell-me-cheap”, whereby stock is presented in a no-frills fashion to keep costs down. This is all well and good assuming that customers are more interested in saving money than aesthetics, but it does mean that the workers in these types of places have to be very careful about how they stack things.
If a customer were to visit one of these types of establishments and be injured in an accident that was not their fault after something fell on them, the injured party might well be in a position to take some form of no-win, no-fee personal injury action with a view to securing a Darlington accident at work compensation pay-out.
Budget store accidents and Darlington accident at work compensation
Imagine that you had decided to pay your local budget supermarket a visit one afternoon, with all thoughts of suffering a personal injury and being put in a position where seeking Darlington accident at work compensation might be an option very far from your mind indeed. You can’t get everything you need from a big shop there, but have got into the habit of visiting a few supermarkets each week, getting what you can from the cheaper ones, and filling the holes where you have to, by going to a more expensive retailer later.
Budget supermarkets often sell all manner of strange stuff that you might not expect to see at a more traditional larger food retailer. You notice that there are some firelighters in the offers section next to the exit. You go to grab a box, and as you do so, a stack of composting containers falls on you, causing you a nasty whiplash injury.
In these circumstances, you might well be able to seek a Darlington accident at work compensation pay-out from the supermarket in question if it could be proved that its staff did not stack the composters properly.
If you’d like to look into seeking a Darlington accident at work compensation pay-out, pick up the phone today and call Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500 and see how we can help you.
