The fun of shopping
For many people, shopping is an enjoyable hobby. The thrill of grabbing a bargain and checking out all the deals and promotions can be a great day out for many. After a hard week at work, many of us like to meet up with some friends at the local shopping centre and wonder about the shops and maybe stop for some lunch or a coffee. Using the weekend to shop with friends can be a great way to unwind after a difficult week and catch up with friendly faces.
One of the best things about a shopping spree with friends is that they are there to help you pick outfits and you know that they will always be honest with you. Honesty is an important quality, and that is why, here at Accident Advice Helpline, if you were to experience an injury through an accident that you were not negligent for at a shopping centre, we will provide you with honest and helpful advice on how to make a no win no fee* Monument claim.
What accident might take place at a shopping centre?
Most shopping centres are home to escalators. This is to make it easier to allow shoppers to get from one floor to another. However, these heavy pieces of machinery can be very dangerous if they malfunction or break while in use. It may be the case that while you are using one, it breaks down and causes you to fall as it jerks. This can cause serious injury to various parts of your body and of course, in no way was it your fault.
Alternatively, you may experience a slip or trip on stairs within the shopping centre if they are damaged, or haven’t been cleaned properly, so you are left to slip on something that shouldn’t be there.
Take details of the accident, get the contact details of any witnesses and report the accident to the shopping centre straight away. As well as this, ensure you are seen by a doctor so you can use your medical report in your case.
