Claiming after being injured in a public place in North Ayrshire?
Although many markets take place throughout the year, there are an increased number of markets and fairs held in the run up to the festive period. Many shopping malls and town centres also host markets on a weekly or monthly basis which can offer customers new and original places to shop.
Risk of injury
As many markets are held outside, stall holders often use frames and tarpaulins to help protect goods from bad weather. When setting up their stall, they must be sure to do so carefully, so that it is secure and safe. If they fail to do so, there is a chance that the frame could fall or that the whole stall could collapse.
As these frames are generally made out of metal, if they were to fall on someone or to collapse, they could cause very serious injuries indeed. If you were to be hurt whilst shopping at a market, you should be able to make a compensation claim, even though you weren’t injured in an in-store environment.
We want to help
In some cases, injured shoppers may need to make a cclaim against the individual stall holder but, in others, the claim may need to be directed at the company responsible for organising the market. If you have been injured but you aren’t sure who is legally responsible for your injuries, why not contact us? In most cases, we are able to help claimants find out exactly what they need to make their claims.
