Furniture and DIY accident claims
Accidents in furniture and DIY stores are not uncommon, with a huge range of different accidents and injuries seen by personal injury solicitors. While DIY and furniture stores may sell heavy and dangerous goods, they have the same responsibilities as other retailers and must take all reasonably practicable steps to ensure their premises are safe and do not pose a danger to the public.When they fail in this regard, people can claim DIY store accident compensation or make a furniture store injury claim.
Some of the most common types of accidents compensation claim lawyers see include:
– Slips, trips and falls
Slips and trips are one of the most significant dangers in all retail premises. Mess on the floors, obstructions in walkways and aisles, poor flooring choices, uneven flooring or poor cleaning systems can lead to slip and trip hazards and result in serious personal injuries.
– Items falling from shelves
DIY and furniture stores can have high shelves with heavy objects on them, and should have safe systems for removing these items from shelves. Shelves should be stacked in a safe manner to ensure items do not fall and land on people. When heavy objects land on shoppers, they can cause serious injuries, including brain damage.
– Product liability claims
Any items manufactured by a furniture or DIY store should be safe for customers to use and fit for purpose. DIY and furniture stores are also responsible for any injuries that are caused by the proper use of their products.
