Common accidents in shops and shopping centres
All shop owners must ensure their premisses are safe places for the public to access. However, sometimes employees, and even shop owners themselves, can fail to provide a completely safe environment and shoppers are injured as a result.
The most common accidents to occur in shops due to negligence are:Open Claim Calculator
Slips – You have probably been in a supermarket when someone has accidentally dropped a jar of sauce or a bottle of wine onto the floor. You may also have noticed that when a member of staff is alerted, they will remain next to the spillage until a sign is placed next to it before the floor is then mopped and any breakages removed.
This is the correct course of action and ensures that staff members have done all they can to clear any items which could cause harm, such as broken glass or spilled liquids, and to warn customers of a slippery surface.
However, if a spillage has not been cleared or there is no sign to alert customers,
a person could easily slip and suffer severe injuries.
Trips – A shop floor should be clear of obstructions including boxes and fallen mannequins. Carpeted and tiled floors should be even without any potential tripping hazards such as snagged carpets or raised, or slippery, tiling. Any damages should be highlighted with signs or hazard tape until they can be repaired.
If the above precautions are not taken, shoppers could trip, causing a reactionary injury such as pulled muscles.
Falling objects – If shelves are over-stacked or improperly stacked, objects can fall from a height, hitting an unsuspecting customer. Employees should be properly trained to avoid these types of accidents and should check shelves regularly to ensure there are no potential hazards.
Falling object accidents can cause all manner of injuries, including head injuries which can be extremely dangerous and even life-threatening.
