Woking is a town towards the north of Surrey. It’s quite a large town, with a population of around 63,000 in the town itself, rising to around 100,000 if you are referring to Woking as the borough, as it also has this status. Woking personal injury claims do sometimes arise, but they are mercifully uncommon in this part of Surrey. Indeed, the odds of anyone having to make a claim for any reason are quite long.
The shopping centre in Woking offers undercover shopping at dozens of shops and outlets. There are three floors in total, and other facilities are also provided here. As such, it has a lot in common with all kinds of other shopping centres up and down the country.
How might someone be injured while at a shopping centre?
These centres are designed and built to be very safe and enjoyable to visit. Obviously, the owners of each business and store have a duty to make sure all their employees and shoppers can use the store safely. A good health and safety approach will ensure this is the case.
The communal areas of all shopping centres must also be checked and maintained regularly to make sure there is little to no chance of anyone suffering an injury due to lack of attention. Maintenance and cleaning are both important elements of such an approach. This is why the number of personal injury claims resulting from people shopping at these centres is kept to a low level at all times.
Would an injury lead to compensation being paid out?
Isolated Woking personal injury claims may potentially be related to injuries suffered in a shopping centre or other similar venue. This is exactly the case with other claims made as a result of injuries incurred in other shopping centres around the country.
