Speak to Clearwater Solicitors today if you have been injured in an accident at B&M Stores!

Just call us on 08000 430 430 or fill in our online enquiry form to get started.
B&M Retail must ensure its stores are as safe as possible for customers to use and its employees to work in, with this applying to all the stores in its franchise, including B&M Homestore and B&M Bargains. If it is negligent towards this duty and someone suffers a personal injury as a result, the victim may be able to claim compensation against B&M. B&M may offer you gift vouchers or a small cash gift after your accident, but you should not accept this money until you speak to Clearwater Solicitors. The overall value of this settlement could be considerably less than the potential size of your compensation claim against B&M and may not cover your financial losses or adequately compensate you for your pain and suffering.
While B&M store accidents take a variety of forms, slips and trips in B&M are some of the most common. Wet floors, litter, spilled food and drink, poor cleaning systems, uneven flooring, poor lighting and obstructions in walkways can all cause customers and employees to slip and trip, and can lead to serious personal injuries. The company must conduct regular risk assessments, train its staff properly and set up good management systems to ensure these accidents do not happen. It is not only liable in B&M injury claims when it is negligent towards this duty – it is also vicariously liable for injuries caused by the negligence of its staff.
There are a number of things you can do to support your B&M injury compensation claim and ensure you receive all the money you deserve. These include:
– Take photographs of the area the accident occurred in
– Take photographs of anything that led to the accident
– Take down the names and telephone numbers of any witnesses
– Report the accident to staff and ensure they record your report
– Ask for a copy of this report
– Visit your doctor or the hospital and have your injuries assessed and recorded
– Keep records of your financial losses, such as lost wages, medical bills, travel costs and other expenses
– Speak with Clearwater Solicitors
If you are unable to complete all of the above steps, Clearwater Solicitors will still be able to help you out and collect evidence, so don’t hesitate to get in touch.
