Bed store Dreams has a duty to protect the health and safety of its customers and prevent avoidable accidents from occurring. It must ensure its floors are kept clean, dry and free of litter, and that all the products it manufacturers are safe for the public to use. When it fails in this regard, it can find itself liable in Dreams compensation claims.
Some of the different forms accidents at Dreams can take include:
Litter, improper cleaning systems and obstructions in walkways can lead to slip and trip injuries in Dreams. The entranceway to stores can also become dangerous in rain or snow, with customers’ shoes leaving water and mud behind. Slips and trips at Dreams can also occur due to uneven flooring, poor lighting and unmarked stairs or slopes. While the majority of these result in minor injuries, they can also lead to serious health problems.
– Product liability claims
If you have bought a bed from Dreams and it has fallen apart and caused you to sustain an injury, you will be able to make a product liability claim against Dreams. The company must ensure its products are safe for the public to use and meet the high standards customers expect.
If you have been injured in an accident at Dreams, you will be able to increase your likelihood of succeeding in your compensation claim with the following tips:
– Take photographs as evidence
Some of the photographic evidence that could support your Dreams compensation claim include pictures of the area your slip or trip occurred at, images of the damage sustained to your bed, and photographs of your personal injuries.
– Record witness information
Take a note of the names and phone numbers of any witnesses to your accident.
– Report the accident to Dreams
Dreams must record your report in its accident book. This will support your claim for compensation. The company may offer you a financial settlement – do not accept this until you have spoken to solicitors.
– See a doctor
You will need to have your injuries recorded in your medical records if you are to make a personal injury claim against Dreams.
– Record financial losses caused by the Dreams accident
These could include medical bills, the cost of specialist equipment, and lost wages. You will be able to recover these losses as part of your Dreams accident compensation claim.
