One of the most common types of accidents were deal with here at Accident Advice Helpline when it comes to Devon ‘no win, no fee*’ claims involves tourists that have been injured in shops.

Whatever the situation, if you think your injuries could have been prevented, then it is important you get in touch with us to find out if you can make a claim.
That is exactly what Ellie did.
Ellie was on holiday in Sidmouth at the time of her accident, and tells us what happened:
“I was on holiday with my boyfriend and we had just been out for a traditional Devonian Cream Tea afternoon. On the way back to our hotel we spotted this quaint little souvenir shop, so we decided to go in. As I was walking around the shop my ankle got caught in the handle of a crab bucket and I fell over. I seriously injured my knee and banged my head on a display shelf.”
Ellie took Accident Advice Helpline’s 30 second test to see if she could make a Devon ‘no win, no fee*’ claim and then instructed us to assist her.
Our investigation showed that the owner of the store had been off sick following an operation, and the member of staff left in charge had not been able to keep on top of the general housekeeping in the store. This meant that stock was piled up around the shop and presented a tripping hazard to customers. This breach in their duty of care meant that they were held liable for Ellie’s unfortunate holiday accident. Call free on 0800 689 0500 or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile phone.
