Homebase is a DIY and home improvement store and a garden centre that offers a huge range of products for household renovations and repairs. Like all other DIY retailers, Homebase has a duty of care towards its staff and customers and must ensure that its premises are as safe as reasonably possible. If Homebase fails to meet these requirements, it can find itself liable in Homebase accident claims. It must implement risk assessments and management systems to ensure members of the public do not suffer injuries in Homebase, and if it is negligent in this regard, it could find itself paying DIY store compensation.
Homebase injury compensation claims take a wide range of different forms and are caused by a vast array of different accidents. Some of the most common include:
– Slips, trips and falls
Slips and trips in Homebase can occur due to wet or untidy floors, poor lighting, poor maintenance systems or a lack of housekeeping.
– Manual handling injuries
Although you may be partially responsible for a manual handling injury at Homebase, the company might be determined to have reasonably foreseen the injury and prevented it from occurring.
– Injuries caused by falling stock
As a lot of the stock in garden centres and DIY stores is very heavy, it can cause serious personal injuries when it lands on customers.
– Collisions with vehicles
Vehicle injuries can occur in-store, such as those involving pallet trucks and forklift trucks, or can arise outdoors in Homebase’s car park. The company may be liable for the injuries occurred in these accidents at Homebase.
