How Direct Solicitors can help you claim for your shopping accident
Often happening very suddenly, shopping accidents can result in painful, long-lasting injuries such as cuts, whiplash and fractures. We understand how shocking it can be to be injured in a shop, shopping centre or supermarket as we don’t expect to be injured whilst carry out normal day-to-day task/activities.
Under The Occupiers’ Liability Act 1957, all business owners have to comply with rules and regulations to ensure you and other members of the public are kept as safe as possible at all times. Failure to follow these rules and regulations will mean the business owner has put you at risk.
We feel no one deserves to suffer as a result of someone else’s negligence and we know your injury is likely to have had an effect on your daily life and your finances. This is why we are here to help. Our legal advice team can guide you through the compensation process answering any questions you may have.
We know compensation cannot undo what has been done but it can help get back on the right track, contact our team on 08000 250 250 to find out how. Or if you’d prefer we can call you, just fill in our online form and arrange a callback time.
How do shopping accidents happen?
It is easy to feel safe in shopping centres, shops and supermarkets but if the proper health and safety rules and regulations have not been correctly abided by then accidents can happen and the result can be severe.
Examples of risks include:
- Falling objects if a shelf hasn’t been stacked properly
- Signs which have not been correctly hung/secured falling down or off the wall
- Sharp edges on shelving or other fittings
- Broken objects which have not been properly disposed of
- Slips, trips or falls – this is a common type of shopping accident and can be caused by:
- Wet floors
- Poorly maintained walkways/paths/pavements/car parks/stairs
- Obstacles such as boxes and packaging left on the floor
The above are more common examples, however, if your experience doesn’t fit in with any of the above then it doesn’t mean we cannot help you. As long as your accident has happened in the last 3 years and wasn’t your fault then you could claim for your injury.

How can compensation help me?
Understandably, making a compensation claim might be the last thing on your mind due to the difficult time caused by the pain and inconvenience you have suffered. However, making a personal compensation claim can give you access to the help and support you need.
Your solicitor when building your compensation claim will ensure that the other party fully understands the entirety of the effects your injury have had on, not only yours but your loved one live as well. This will ensure you recover the maximum amount of compensation that you need and are entitled to.
Shopping accident can cause pain and financial worries due to potentially needing to take a substantial amount of time off work, with no or reduced pay. We understand that this can leave you with difficulties when it comes to paying your bills and funding any additional expenses you may have due to your injuries.
Also, when claiming your compensation, your solicitor will consider the effects your injury has had on your family, covering additional things like travel, accommodation and if they have provided care to you due to your injury.

What is “No Win No Fee”?
No Win No Fee means you will not have to worry about paying upfront for your legal fees. It also means if our solicitors take your case on under a No Win No Fee agreement (also known as a Conditional Fee Agreement (CFA)) and you don’t win any compensation you will not owe them any fee, there are no hidden terms and/or conditions, just simply, if you do not win your case you do not pay any legal fee.
