Do you need to contact West Dunbartonshire accident claim solicitors after being hurt outside a shop?
Whilst many shops and supermarkets have indoor promotional materials on show, some also have stands or signs outside the store. These often advertise particular offers or sales that are taking place and are designed to entice shoppers into the store. In some cases, they are located in car parks or on public streets so it’s important that they are secured properly and that they aren’t likely to cause someone an injury.
If, for example, a promotional stand or sign was left outside but not affixed to anything, it could easily blow over in the wind or rain. If located in a car park, it could cause extensive damage to vehicles but it could also cause injuries if it was to hit a person.
Although many stores also have signage above the entrance to the store, this isn’t always very well maintained. There are reports of signage falling and hitting customers on their way in and out of the store. Due to the weight of the signage, these incidents have resulted in very serious injuries, and even fatalities, occurring.
If you’ve been hurt due to falling signage or promotional materials, the store owners could be held responsible and you could obtain compensation from them when you make a compensation claim with West Dunbartonshire accident claim solicitors. As long as your West Dunbartonshire accident claim solicitors can show that you didn’t contribute to the incident and that it wasn’t your fault, it’s likely that you will be awarded compensation for the harm and pain that you’ve suffered.
Of course, before you commit to making your compensation claim with West Dunbartonshire accident claim solicitors, you may want to know just how much your claim is worth. In some cases, potentially claimants want to ensure that making a claim is worthwhile and that they will receive a reasonable amount of compensation if their claim is successful.
