Wilko has more than 300 stores in Britain, selling a huge range of household essentials, and these stores see thousands of customers every day. Wilkinson has a duty of care towards all of these customers and all of its employees, and must take all reasonably practicable steps to ensure preventable accidents do not occur on its premises.
When Wilkinson fails in this duty, then people who suffer injuries as a result of these failings can make Wilko accident compensation claims. There are a range of different accidents that can cause injuries in Wilkinson – these include:
Paint, food, drink, litter and obstructions in walkways can lead to slips and trips in Wilkinson, which can cause serious injuries. Wilkinson must take all reasonably practicable steps to prevent slips or trips from happening on its premises.
– Falling items
Items that are poorly stacked on shelves can fall over and hit people, poorly-maintained displays and fittings can collapse or fall from the wall and land on customers, and furnishings can come loose, fall down and injure staff or customers.
– Manual handling injuries
When people lift up heavy objects or reach for items in difficult-to-reach places, they can sprain bones or develop serious musculoskeletal disorders. Wilkinson employees have a higher risk of developing these injuries than customers, but they can afflict anyone.
