Pundshop injury claims
Pundshop has become a popular shopping destination in recent years, with the squeeze on incomes encouraging people to go to cut-price retailers. Although Pundshop offers a cheap and cheerful shopping experience– it has a duty of care towards its customers and its employees, and is legally required to ensure that accidents do not occur on its premises.
When it fails to meet this duty, it can be liable in Pundshop accident claims. These compensation claims take a variety of forms, including:
– Slips and trips in Pundshop
When litter or other items fall on the floor, or when a floor becomes sticky and contaminated, Pundshop must clean up this mess in a safe way to ensure that people do not slip or trip. Other factors commonly seen in slip and trip compensation claims include poor lighting, uneven flooring and poor standards of training for cleaners.
– Falling items
When shelves are poorly stacked, items can fall from height and land on customers, leading to serious injuries. Falling furnishings and collapsing shelves or displays can also occur in retailers and lead to devastating injuries.
– Manual handling
Employees at Pundshop can suffer from manual handling injuries when moving goods around and stacking shelves, while customers can suffer the same injuries when reaching for items in hard-to-reach places.
