Have you been hurt at a garden centre?
Being injured while out shopping can come as a huge shock. Garden centres carry heavy items and if you’ve been hurt in a public place in Vale of Glamorgan, you may be able to claim compensation.
Although most garden centres do sell products, they are slightly different from most high street stores or supermarkets. With most of their products located outside, garden centres can take up a significant area, with some even stretching to an acre or more.
Depending on the type of products you’re looking for, you may need to visit a specialist garden centre. Whilst most towns and cities feature a number of regular garden centres, if you’re looking for specialist plants or trees, you may need to visit a larger centre based further afield.
Although most garden centres do have staff on hand to help customers, there may not always be someone available when you need assistance. Despite trolleys being available for customers to use, these can be very heavy to push once you’ve loaded your purchases on to it. In fact, some people have even been hurt whilst trying to use them. If you attempted to use a trolley whilst shopping in a garden centre and something was wrong with it which caused you an injury, it’s possible that you could claim for being hurt in a public place in Vale of Glamorgan.
