Claiming after an injury in retail
Providing employment to a significant number of people in the UK, the retail industry continues to thrive. With shops situated in villages, towns and cities, the retail sector provides employment and amenities in most areas of the country.
As with any industry, there are specific laws governing the health and safety of retail workers. Employers are required to provide training, for example, as this can help to reduce the chance of injuries occurring.
With so many retail venues in the UK, it’s not surprising that accidents can happen from time to time. If you’ve been hurt whilst working in a retail environment, you may want to consider making an injury claim in Olveston.
Of course, it isn’t just employees who can sustain injuries as a result of an accident in a shop or store. If you were a customer and were hurt, you could also be eligible to obtain compensation for the harm you’ve suffered.
Making an injury claim in Olveston
Whether you’re an employee or a customer, you’ll need to prove that you weren’t responsible for the incident before you’ll be able to make an injury claim in Olveston. If you’re an employee, you may need to prove that your employer has failed to provide a safe working environment before you’ll be able to obtain compensation.
Alternatively, if you were a customer, you’ll simply need to show that the store managers or another customer was responsible for the accident. If you’re able to do this, there’s a good chance you’ll be able to proceed with an injury claim in Olveston.
Were you badly hurt?
Even a relatively straightforward accident can cause serious injuries but, if something fell on you or stock wasn’t secured, you could have been very seriously hurt. Before you’ll be able to make your claim, you will need to access medical help for your injuries.
Although you can make a claim for relatively minor harm, you’ll need to have received some form of medical treatment before you’ll be able to do so.
