The Body Shop and all other health and beauty stores are obliged to prevent accidents from occurring on their property. It is also vicariously responsible for the actions of its employees, and if their failings cause you to suffer a personal injury, you can make a compensation claim for an accident in The Body Shop. Although The Body Shop prides itself on its ethical and environmental considerations, it has the same health and safety obligations as every other retailer and can be liable in The Body Shop accident claims when it fails to meet these requirements.
While a huge range of accidents can happen in The Body Shop, some accidents are more common than others. These include:
When health and beauty products fall from shelves and land on the floor, they can create dangerous, slippery patches. Staff at The Body Shop must clean these up and prevent shoppers from slipping on them. Cleaning procedures can also create slip and trip hazards, such as when floors are wet after cleaning or when vacuum cleaner cables and mops create tripping hazards in aisles. The Body shop is responsible for all its property, so if it owns a car park or any other land, it must ensure this is also safe for the public to walk on.
– Items falling from shelves
When items fall from shelves, they can land on customers or employees and cause serious personal injuries. Staff must be trained in how to stack shelves safely to ensure products do not fall and land on people. The Body Shop could still be liable if it has trained staff in how to stack shelves but a staff member has ignored this training.
If you’ve been injured in an accident at The Body Shop, then you can support your health and beauty accident compensation claim with the following tips:
– Take photographs of the scene of the accident
– Report your accident to The Body Shop and have it put down in their accident book
– See a doctor and have your injuries recorded in your medical records
– Keep a record of any financial losses you incur, such as medical bills, travel costs and lost wages
– Speak to Clearwater Solicitors as soon as possible
