If you have fallen heavily while shopping because a spillage had not been cleaned up and there were no warning signs around it, you may need to know more about how the services of a Carlisle law firm could help you. The reason for this is that proprietors of shops and managers of shopping centres have a duty of care towards their customers. This includes floors being kept clean and safe or, at the least, dangerous areas cordoned off and signposted until the floor has been appropriately cleaned.
Subsequently, if an area of flooring is left in a slippery condition without warnings signs and you injure yourself, you may be able to claim compensation for your injuries. It is worth noting, however, if you fall because you are roller skating through the store, you probably would not be able to claim compensation for your fall.
To claim compensation, it has to be proven that your accident was due to a third party acting negligently. There are certain steps that you can take to help provide the evidence that this is the case. You can try to take a photograph of the area where the accident took place.
Hopefully, you will be able to demonstrate that there were no warning signs in place and also that the floor was wet or greasy. If anyone witnesses your accident, you should try to get them to provide an eye witness statement. The nearer to the time of the accident date that you get this, the better.
