Occupier’s liability law states that the owner has a duty of care to ensure that their premises are safe for members of the public. If they are shown to be negligent by not cleaning up a spillage for example, then they may be liable to pay you compensation if you suffer an injury as a result of the shop accident.
We have listed some of the most common causes of shop accidents below.
If you have been involved in a shop accident then you should report this to the store manager so that it can be recorded in their accident book.
If possible try to collect evidence from the scene of the shop accident as this will support your compensation claim. If there are any witnesses present then it is advisable to ask for their details and take photographs of the shop accident scene if you are fit to do so.
