Read on if you’re considering making a claim with a solicitor in Holywell and you’d like to know more
Years ago, many of the major retailers held sales once or twice a year. However, nowadays, many stores and shopping malls seem to have constant sales or offers available. Although it’s possible to grab a bargain at any time of the year, shops in the United Kingdom are well-known for having sales every January.
Although the UK is following the US an holding sales before Christmas, often called ‘Black Friday’, the majority of shoppers are keen to hold out for a post-Christmas bargain. While the UK high streets and shopping malls are normally busy throughout the year, they can get over-crowded during peak sale times.
People have been known to queue for hours or even camp overnight in order to guarantee that they are one of the first in the shop when a sale is being held. Whilst most people enjoy the busy shopping season, the sheer number of shoppers frequenting the shops can mean that it’s hard to navigate your way around the shop, or even to find the exit.
Need help claiming compensation?
Whilst many shops do employ additional staff and extra security personnel during this time, often this isn’t enough to prevent accidents or injuries from occurring. With many people trying to jostle their way to the front of the queue, people can get knocked or even pushed over.
As many of the sales displays or product racks can become displaced, often items are simply left on the floor or hanging off of rails. With products being strewn across the store, it can often be difficult to avoid slipping or tripping.
If you do find that you suffer an injury whilst you’re out shopping, a solicitor in Holywell could help you to make a claim for compensation, providing it wasn’t your fault.
