When shopping means injury
For many of us going shopping is an experience to be enjoyed rather than endured. Browsing through racks of clothes, finding that perfect item and then sashaying down the High Street with all your purchases lovingly packaged is most girls’ dream of a fantastic way to spend Saturday. Or any day for that matter.
Unfortunately though such activities can bring with them their own risks, and we’re not just talking about overdrafts and letters from mean bank managers here. We’re talking about actual risks and personal injuries.
Over the years our Llandudno accident claim solicitors have helped countless people, male and female, claim compensation after they have been injured in shopping based activities. If you think you may be able to make a claim for compensation then please contact our team today at Accident Advice Helpline to find out more.
For many people seeking compensation via our Llandudno accident claim solicitors their injury occurs before the real shopping can begin i.e. on the way to the shops in the first place. In such instances people are injured in road traffic accidents on their way to the shopping centre.
If you have been involved in such a road traffic accident then you will be able to make a claim for compensation providing that the accident in question was not your fault. You could be entitled to claim if you were the driver of a vehicle or a passenger. Our Llandudno accident claim solicitors can also help if you were a passenger on a bus, train or tram or if you were a pedestrian at the time of the accident. No matter what the situation if you have been injured as a result of the actions of someone else then our Llandudno accident claim solicitors will do all they can to make sure that you get the compensation that you are entitled to.
The High Street
High Streets themselves can be dangerous places with uneven pavement posing a particular risk. Raised paving slabs or uneven ground can cause trips, which in turn can create serious injuries.
Our Llandudno accident claim solicitors will be able to identify whether the ground in question is technically dangerous, and who was responsible for its maintenance. In such a way they will be able to determine if you have the right to make a claim, and can handle such a claim on your behalf.
Shops can also pose another form of risk in terms of tripping or slipping. Stock or other items left lying around can pose a danger to customers and other visitors to stores. Equally poor general housekeeping can mean that in the case of spillages that are not cleaned up appropriately or in a timely manner can cause risk of slipping.
