    Enjoying a day of retail therapy is a pastime which becomes more and more popular every day. With more and more shopping outlets opening in towns across the country, the amount that the retail trade is making is staggering. Making money and being profitable is what makes retail companies tick. However when it comes to maintenance within their stores, sometimes corners are cut in order to keep costs down. This dangerous measure is when an injury solicitor in Ormskirk could be needed.

    Hazards in a retail environment

    Whilst wandering around your local shopping precinct you may not notice any hazards at all, until you open your eyes. Hazards are everywhere in the retail industry and many are poised, waiting for an accident to happen. A large crack in the floor, loosely covered in tape can still be considered a trip hazard. Tripping over in a store and sustaining injuries through no fault of your own could mean you are entitled to some compensation.

    Other hazards found in retail outlets include loose fittings on shelving units, over-stacked shelves, faulty equipment and more. If an accident does happen within a store you are entitled to representation from an experienced solicitor in Ormskirk who may then advise you that a claim for compensation is on the cards.

    Retail procedures and your experienced solicitor in Ormskirk

    When an accident happens within a retail environment it is highly likely that they will have their own procedures for dealing with the incident. In some cases this may merely consist of a form which then gets sent to head office.

    If you fill in such a form after your accident ensure you don’t leave the store until you have your own copy of the document. This form will be added to your case file by your injury solicitor in Ormskirk and used later on, if necessary.
