Have you been injured in a shopping mall?
With numerous shopping malls in towns and cities around the UK, there are plenty of places for people to shop and purchase goods. Indeed, many shopping centres are now entertainment venues as well, with cinemas and restaurants housed under one roof.
It’s no surprise then, that thousands of people visit malls and shopping centres each week. Although most malls have dedicated security staff, accidents can sometimes happen and people may get hurt whilst shopping.
If you’ve been injured whilst in a shop or a mall, you may feel that someone else was at fault and you may want to take action against them. Providing you can show that the incident wasn’t your own fault, you may be able to make a claim for compensation.
Could a personal injury law firm in Smethwick assist you?
As most shopping malls have CCTV cameras both indoors and outdoors, there’s a good chance that your accident will have been caught on tape. This could make it relatively easy to prove who was at fault and it may make it easy for you to obtain compensation with help from an injury law firm in Smethwick.
Of course, your first priority after an accident should always be to seek medical help. Getting the treatment you need could prevent your injury from worsening and, if you’ve been badly hurt, it could even save your life.
In addition to taking care of your own health, obtaining medical treatment will also enable you to make a compensation claim after the incident.
How long have you got to make a claim?
Of course, you don’t want to have to rush into making a claim straight after sustaining an injury but you should be aware that time limits are normally imposed on claimants. In general, you will need to make your claim within three years of getting hurt so it’s important to take action within this time.
