If you have been injured in a supermarket or shop then you could be entitled to make a Dacorum no win no fee claim with Accident Advice Helpline.
All shop owners and market traders have a responsibility to the public to ensure their safety. This means that the areas in which they are trading, whether internally or externally are kept safe and free from hazards and dangers. This is regarded as being their duty of care, and if a shop owner or manager fails in this duty and someone is injured as a result, then a Dacorum no win no fee claim can be made against them.
With so many different things that need to be taken into consideration, especially within larger retail units, it is no wonder that there are so many different opportunities for people to injured in such environments.
Car parks must be well signed and managed appropriately. Pathways must be kept free from clutter and rubbish, inspected regularly to ensure that there are no broken or uneven patches that could create a tripping accident, and everything must be gritted during periods of adverse weather to prevent slipping.
Internally there must be processes in place to help ensure that any spillages are cleaned up quickly and appropriately to minimise the risk of injury, stock is put away and stored correctly to avoid tripping or falling, and staff do not get under foot with trolleys, boxes or carts.
If a manager fails in any of these areas then there is a good chance that one of the many people walking into their store on a daily basis will suffer an accident and be injured. It would then be that injured person’s legal right to make a Dacorum no win no fee claim against them.
How we handle Dacorum no win no fee claims
Here at Accident Advice Helpline our solicitors only work on no win no fee claims. This means that no matter what type of accident you have suffered, or the type of injuries you have sustained as a result, you will always be offered our Dacorum no win no fee guarantee.
As a result, we handle every case the same.
We will initially determine whether you are eligible to make a claim and we do this using our 30 second test. You can test for yourself your eligibility by going online and entering the necessary information.
We will then start to gather the necessary information and evidence to support your claim. This will mean looking at what the shop manager or owner is expected to do legally, and whether or not they did it. If they didn’t do what was expected of them then your solicitors will need to provide evidence that it was this failure that ultimately led to the accident taking place.
