Solicitors in Weymouth


In a day and age where shopping is more of a hobby than a necessity more and more people visit stores on a daily basis. With increased footfall and more people wanting to shop for bargains some businesses are becoming more greedy and hence are liable to causing more accidents.

Accidents in public places do happen and your solicitors in Weymouth will be able to build a case on your behalf. But what hazards are there which retailers should know better about?

Hazards in greedy retailers

The whole concept of business is to make money. This in itself causes accidents because greed takes over. The idea of piling stock onto the shop floor is a business tactic. If it is in the stock room it can’t sell so by pushing out stock there are potentially higher sales available for the company.

However pushing out stock can be dangerous. Piling it high can open the opportunity for 2 different accidents. The first being that those products could fall off and become a trip hazard and the second that the weight of the product could be too much for the display unit. Which in turn means that either the product or the fixture could fall and injure a customer. Either of these circumstances could be a compensation claim with solicitors in Weymouth.

Solicitors in Weymouth and retail accidents

In addition to piling out stock on to the shop floor retailers have other qualities which create further accidents. Staying in the same scenario of making money some businesses also cut back on repairs on maintenance in order to lower expenditure.

Not repairing other hazards such as faulty fixtures, raised carpets and sharp edges leads to a catalogue of other accidents which could be prevented. If any accident happens in which the customer is not at fault the retailer could be in very hot water, and not just with solicitors in Weymouth.

If you have an accident in a retail store you may be entitled to some compensation money. Having an accident may be a little on the humiliating side but if it wasn’t your fault you shouldn’t have to pay the subsequent costs that go with it.
