B&Q accident claims

Accidents in B&Q can be very serious, and the size of some B&Q injury compensation claims reflects this fact. While the majority of people injured in B&Q accidents make a full recovery, some people suffer serious long-term health consequences or lifelong injuries.
Some of the forms B&Q accident compensation claims take include:

–          Slips and trips in B&Q

–          Injuries caused by falling stock

–          Manual handling injuries

–          Moving vehicle accidents, including collisions with pallet trucks and warehouse machinery

B&Q injury claim case studies

A piece of wood fell from some racking in a Trowbridge B&Q store. This resulted in a shopper sustaining a laceration to the leg, which required hospital treatment and took four months to completely heal. Investigations indicated that B&Q had failed to ensure that the timber would not fall from the racking or that the racking was suitable for the items stored on it. The victim of this B&Q accident received an undisclosed compensation payment, which fully recompensed them for their pain, suffering, losses and legal expenses.

Make a B&Q compensation claim

If B&Q or its employees were wholly responsible for your injuries, then you should be able to recover every penny you lost as a result of the B&Q accident and be compensated for your pain and suffering. You can give yourself the best possible chance of succeeding in your B&Q compensation claim with the following tips:

–          If possible, take a photograph of the area your accident occurred in and any factors that led to it

–          Collect any other evidence that relates to your B&Q injury claim

–          Take down the name and contact number of anyone who witnessed the accident

–          Report the accident to B&Q staff and make sure they record it in the store’s accident book

–          Visit a doctor and have your injuries assessed and recorded in your medical records

–          Keep a record of any financial losses you incur due to the B&Q accident injury, including wages you did not receive, medical bills you had to pay and any other expenses you had to deal with as a direct result of the accident
