Nine times out of ten our trip to the supermarket, restaurant or corner shop is made without a problem. But sometimes accidents can happen and through no fault of our own.

If you suffer a personal injury in a shop or restaurant and you feel you are not to blame, contact the expert personal injury solicitors at Forbes today. We specialise in bringing about successful compensation claims for individuals who have suffered a personal injury in public places such as shops and restaurants.

Common Accidents in Shops and Restaurants

Some of the most common injuries we deal with stem from the following issues:

  • Wet floors and spillages
  • Poor lighting
  • Insufficiently maintained walkways and walking surfaces
  • Obstructions on walking surfaces
  • Poorly fitted floor coverings and carpets

All occupiers of publicly used premises such as restaurants and shops have a duty of care to make sure their premises are safe for the public. This means they are required to clean up spills, keep areas clean and make sure all walking surfaces are safe for people to use.

If they fail in this duty of care and you are injured as a result, you may be entitled to compensation.

Free Consultation from Forbes Solicitors

A phone call or email with one of our expert solicitors is all it takes to start a compensation claim, where they will discuss the extent of your injuries with you and gather details of how you were injured. If we find that the accident was caused by someone else, we will be able to start a compensation claim on your behalf, all on a no win, no fee basis.

We fight to ensure you receive the maximum amount of compensation every time. This is to make sure any costs incurred are recovered and any necessary on going treatments or rehabilitation programmes are paid for.

Your best interests are always at the heart of everything we do.

Contact Forbes for your Shop/Restaurant Accident Claim

If you have been injured in a public place such as a restaurant or shop please call freephone 0800 689 0973 or contact us by email today to get your compensation claim underway.

Alternatively if you would like a face to face consultation, we have expert Solicitors at each of our offices based in Accrington, Blackburn Chorley and Preston ready to help you.
