If you have an accident whilst you are out shopping, you may not realise that you may be able to make a compensation claim against the store in which you had your accident. If you believe that your accident was the fault of shop staff or management, then Accident Advice Helpline will be able to tell you if you can claim compensation for being hurt in a public place in Cwmbran. Here are some of the things that you should do to make it easier for you to make a claim later on.
Fill out an accident report if you’re hurt in a public place in Cwmbran
If you have had an accident in a store then it is more than likely that the store will have a procedure for reporting accidents so that they can prevent the same thing happening again in the future. It will be useful for you to report your accident as not only does it help the store to prevent the same accident happening again, but also gives you an official record of what happened to help you with a compensation claim. Ask the store for a copy of the accident report after you have filled it out.
Ask witnesses for their information
The store should have CCTV but just in case they won’t hand this over or it hasn’t been recorded for whatever reason, you can take getting evidence into your own hands by asking the people that were around and saw your accident if they would be happy to speak for you in court and for your claim. All you need is a name and contact number so that your lawyer can refer back to them later on.
