If you’re not a big fan of shopping, being dragged along to one of those furniture megastores that force you to walk through a maze of products before you can purchase the one item you went in for will not be your idea of fun. If you’re buying a bulky item, you’ll then have to go and pick it off the shelves yourself before dragging it out to your car. It’s enough to make you wish you stayed at home and ordered what you wanted online.
These places make you pick your own stuff out of their warehouses to save money. That way they don’t need to pay staff to do what you’re doing. This results in you getting your furniture that little bit cheaper, but it could put you at risk of being involved in an accident that was not your fault. If this were to happen, you might well be able to take some form of Newport claims action against the company concerned with the help of a top-class no -win, no-fee personal injury solicitor.
Furniture stores and Newport claims solicitors
You arrive at your local furniture superstore with a specific item in mind that you want to buy. You’ve seen it on the company’s website, but unfortunately the item is not available for home delivery. After entering the store, you have to snake your way around the whole place to get to the piece you want. This is frustrating, but thoughts of Newport claims action are far from your mind.
You find what you’re looking for, and note down the product code on one of those little slips of paper shops like these provide. Once you’ve done so, you make your way to the store’s warehouse, where you will need to find and pick the one you’re after.
You grab a large trolley and set about searching for the item you want to buy. It doesn’t take you long, but unfortunately, the furniture you’re after is on a high shelf. You grab a stepladder and go to pull it down. As you do so, another item becomes dislodged and falls on your head, knocking you unconscious. It seems that a worker had stacked stock in a dangerous fashion.
Under these rather unfortunate circumstances there will be a chance that you might well be able to take some form of Newport claims action against the furniture store that was responsible for your misfortune.
