Department store accident compensation claims

A range of accidents can occur in department stores and lead to department store injury compensation claims; some of the most common include:

–          Slips and trips in department stores

Wet floors, litter, spilled food and drink, uneven flooring, poor cleaning systems and a huge number of other issues can lead to trips and slips in department stores, and the consequences of these accidents can be severe. Department stores should take steps to prevent slips and trips from occurring on their premises.

–          Falling stock accidents

Falling items in department stores can lead to serious injuries, including eye injuries and brain damage. Items must be stacked on shelves in a safe way to ensure they do not fall and hit staff or customers.

–          Moving vehicle accidents

Trolleys, pallet trucks and motorised vehicles can collide with employees or customers. Department stores must take steps to ensure this does not happen, such as by making sure vehicles are well maintained and by separating pedestrian traffic and vehicle traffic.
