The county of Hertfordshire is divided into several government districts. One of these is Hertsmere, which is also recognised as a borough. It takes up a portion of the southern end of Hertfordshire, and includes such towns as Elstree and Potters Bar. Its population is said to be around 103,500 people. Therefore, if you had good reason to find Hertsmere accident claim solicitors, you probably wouldn’t need to look too far to find someone.
But why are you considering looking for someone who can help with a personal accident claim in the first place? Well, if you have injuries that were caused by someone who wasn’t paying attention, or failed to do something they should have done, you might have a good case to argue for.
We all go shopping, and most of the time these shopping excursions are fine. Every employer and shop owner has a duty of care to look after their workers and to ensure they are not put at risk of injury while at work. But they also have a duty of care to make sure their premises are safe for customers. Risk assessments should be completed to identify any risks that may be there, so these can be resolved immediately.
You may wonder what could go wrong if you were out shopping. Maybe you aren’t wondering, though. Maybe you tripped over a hazard on a shop floor, such as the leg of a clothes rail that was sticking out further than it should be. Perhaps you slipped on a wet floor that hadn’t been mopped or dried properly, and no warning signs were there to alert you to that fact. Perhaps you were injured in another way, by a shop sign falling on you, or by some other hazard the owner should have accounted for and removed or made safe. There are plenty of things that might potentially happen, although we should note that very few people are ever injured anywhere while enjoying a pleasant shopping trip, and that is good news.
