Argos offers a catalogue form of sales, which helps to limit the risk of employees suffering personal injuries. It has a huge range of goods on sale, including toys, home appliances, items for the garden, gadgets and heavy furnishing. Because of this unique shopping environment, slips and trips at Argos represent the majority of personal injury compensation claims against the firm. Retailers have a duty to ensure the health and safety of everyone on their premises and Argos is no exception. It must implement effective risk assessments and management systems to effectively control risk, and take all reasonably practicable steps to ensure people do not suffer a personal injury on its premises.
If you’ve been in an accident at Argos, you have the right to claim compensation for your personal injuries and recover any financial losses you incurred. Just contact Clearwater Solicitors for more information.

A man was shopping in an Argos branch in Dublin and was queuing for a lawnmower when he slipped on a baby wipe. He suffered a shoulder injury in the Argos accident. His Argos compensation claim alleged that the company had failed to effectively clean the store to prevent slipping hazards. Argos argued that it could not have reasonably be expected to have cleaned up the baby wipe before the accident happened, but a judge determined that the baby wipe probably fell on the floor ten minutes before the claimant’s injuries.
Furthermore, the additional footfall in the queuing area should have meant this space required additional vigilance when ensuring the safety of customers. The claimant received €17,500 (£15,070) plus costs in the Argos injury claim, which helped them to recover their losses and get their life back on track.
