Kitchenware retailer Lakeland is legally obliged to take all reasonably practicable steps to prevent accidents from happening on its premises. Like all other companies, it has a duty of care towards its staff and customers, and when Lakeland or its employees are negligent towards this duty of care and this negligence leads to someone suffering an injury, it can be liable in Lakeland injury compensation claims.
Lakeland injury claims can take a wide range of forms; some of the most common include:
Slips and trips in Lakeland can occur due to poor cleaning systems, spilled food and drink, obstructions and cables in walkways, uneven flooring, poor lighting and a number of other factors. Lakeland must ensure that its staff and employees are not injured in slips and trips in its stores.
– Falling items
Items can fall from height and land on customers or staff members, leading to serious personal injuries. Loose furnishings, uneven displays and poorly-stacked items are all significant risks at retail premises, and Lakeland must take steps to deal with these hazards before they lead to accidents.
– Manual handling injuries
While staff at Lakeland can suffer manual handling injuries while moving stock around or completing other work-related tasks, customers can also sustain these injuries when stretching to reach goods in hard-to-reach places.
Making a compensation claim against Lakeland can be a difficult and frustrating process, but the experts at Clearwater Solicitors can make it as simple and hassle-free as possible. There are a number of things you can do to improve your likelihood of success and increase the overall size of your compensation claim – these include:
– Take photographs of the area the accident happened in and anything that caused the accident
– Collect the names and telephone numbers of witnesses
– Report the accident to Lakeland and ensure they record it
– Ask for a copy of this accident report
– Go to a doctor and have your injuries assessed and put down in your medical records
– Keep a record of any financial losses you incur that relate to the injury
It is understandable if you are unable to collect evidence immediately after the accident, and Clearwater Solicitors can still help you claim compensation against Lakeland if this is the case.
