    Accident at work in Stratford-on-Avon


    Personal Injury Solicitors in Stratford-on-Avon

     

    Contrary to the popular belief that retail is an easy job to do it is actually a very difficult and demanding position to keep. At a fast pace throughout the day, every day, and often manning enough work for 3 people at a time retail staff have it hard.

    In such a demanding environment there are many hazards which can become more dangerous as staff run around trying to keep up with demand. An accident at work in Stratford-on-Avon could be just round the corner.

    Hazards in retail

    Hazards in the retail environment are very real both on and off of the shop floor. In the store itself the element of risk is featured in any fixtures and fittings displaying products. Through wear and tear these fixtures could fall on to someone or become a trip hazard.

    Other shop floor hazards can be spillages which are not communicated to team members as well as electrical equipment including tills.

    An accident at work in Stratford-on-Avon in retail

    Having an accident in a retail environment means that there may be additional steps in making a claim. Many retail companies have their own version of an accident report form. This usually contains basic contact information plus details about the accident itself. When making a claim for compensation it would be useful to have this document to support the claim.

    Having eye witnesses will also prove to be useful and having both colleagues and customers in the vicinity will mean that there should be at least a few who saw what happened. Just by having the contact details of these people can really benefit the case at a later date.

    Making a claim is not something you need to undertake all by yourself. With many legal aids who can assist with your claim there is plenty of help around.
