One of the key sights in Alsager, a town in Cheshire, is its town centre. Around 12,000 people live in this area and many of them will rely on the town centre for supplies of all kinds. You can also visit some of the local parks, but if shopping is your thing, you will find many local shops to explore. You may also seek out injury solicitors in Alsager in the unlikely event you should ever suffer an injury while out shopping.
Shopping-related injuries are very rare – and for good reason, too. Shopkeepers of all kinds of businesses have a duty to make sure their premises are safe, both for themselves and the people who work there, and for those who visit them to do some shopping.
Health and safety
This is a topic we’re all familiar with to some extent. However, there is the chance a few shopkeepers may not always take their duties seriously. We can see this on the rare occasions news of a compensation claim reaches the headlines. This is a rarity indeed in Alsager, but in reality it could happen anywhere in the country.
You might be injured while visiting a shop if the floor inside is slippery, perhaps because of bad weather. If it becomes wet and the floor is not dried and there are no signs warning people of the potential danger, this could be said to be negligent on the part of the shopkeeper. Additionally, other potential hazards could come from poor fixtures and fittings, and overloaded shelves. You might have call to visit injury solicitors in Alsager if you were injured in these circumstances.
