Phones 4u has a duty of care towards its staff and employees. This means that it must take all reasonably practicable steps to ensure that people do not suffer an accident on its premises. It can face a Phones4u injury compensation claim if it is negligent towards this duty. Phones4u compensation claims take a variety of forms, including slips and trips at Phones 4u, or stock falling from height and landing on people. The company must ensure these accidents do not happen.
Some of the ways it can do so is by implementing effective management systems, by maintaining good standards of staff training and by completing risk assessments regularly. The company is not just responsible for its own actions – it is also liable for the negligence of its employees and can face Phones 4u accident compensation claims when its workforce’s negligence leads to people suffering personal injuries.
An Eastbourne woman, who worked at Phones 4u, suffered severe damage to her foot in an accident at work. She sought £300,000 in compensation from the company as a result of the Phones 4u accident, which saw a stack of computers fall over and land on her foot. This left her with serious foot injuries, including complex regional pain syndrome, as well as psychological problems including depression.
She claimed the accident at Phones 4u has made her unable to continue in her previous line of work, while her psychological difficulties have affected her future prospects. Phones 4u’s insurers admitted liability for the accident, but the final compensation settlement has not yet been reported, as the size of her losses is still under dispute.
