Types Of Shop Accidents

Shops owe a duty of care to their customers.  It is their duty to ensure that shoppers are safe whilst they are within their premises.  They must take the steps necessary to prevent or reduce the risk of accidents.

If you have suffered injuries in a shop accident and if it was caused due to someone else’s negligence, you may be able to make shop accident claims.

Shop accidents can take place due to many reasons.  Here’s a look at some of the common types of accidents happening in shops.

Slips – slips in shops can be caused by spillages, leaks from freezers, refrigerators and toilet facilities and due to inadequate cleaning procedures.

Trips – trip accidents in shops are also not uncommon.  They can occur in car parking areas, due to packing material left lying on the floor, damaged flooring, torn carpets and other defects.

Falling objects – objects falling from high shelves can also cause injuries to shoppers.  Displays and unsecured signs can also fall and cause injuries.

Sharp objects – broken stands, equipments in the shops and broken shelving can be dangerous to shoppers as they can leave sharp protrusions which can result in injuries.

Faulty products – defective products which are purchased in shops and used at home can cause injuries.

Negligence of staff – if the staff in the shop is negligent, accidents and injuries can result.  For example, a shopper may be hurt due to the negligent act of a staff pushing a stock cage.

Accidents in car parks – if the shop parking area is not kept clean and tidy and free from hazards, it can cause accidents and injuries to people.  Ice and snow accumulating in parking areas can also result in injuries.
