Accidents in Shops

Solicitors For Accidents In Shops And Other Private Premises

Supermarkets and other shops can be hazardous places.  If you have been injured while shopping on with any other private premises, such as bar or restaurant you should remember that you are owed the same duty of care to be able to visit safely.  Supermarkets and other shops and premises have a duty to make sure that they comply with all the relevant legal rules, including strict health and safety legislation. They also has a legal obligation to have accident insurance in place so that any compensation claim will be dealt with by those insurers.

Claiming Compensation Following Accidents and Injuries In Shops

Unfortunately, many companies (even the big multi-national supermarkets) do not strictly follow regulations, corners are cut and poor maintenance and cleaning regimes can lead to faulty equipment, hazards and injuries.

Bakers Solicitors believes that all accident victims should have access to justice. We are committed to securing the compensation injured visitors to shops and other private premises deserve. In particular we are interested in handling those rejected cases that other solicitors view as weak or in some way too risky to pursue.
