At Aequitas Legal, our personal injury experts have helped to secure compensation for many people who have suffered all kinds of injuries in a store, from minor cuts and bruises to serious head and back damage. We will do all we can to ensure that the claims process is not a burden on your recovery, as we know how important it is that you get better.
There are a number of ways you can be injured in a shop, whether you’re an employee or a customer, but the most frequent cause is management and staff failure to follow procedures to keep you from harm. Common accidents caused by negligence include:
No matter how you have been injured, if the accident was caused by somebody else’s negligence, you could be entitled to compensation.
Shop owners and management teams have a duty to keep all employees and customers safe while on their premises. This is carried out by completing regular risk assessments to identify and reduce any hazards. In addition, training must be given to all staff to ensure they are able to complete their work safely with an understanding of the importance of following health and safety rules, for example, tidying up work areas.
Should you, unfortunately, suffer an injury in a shop, there are a number of things you can do to help the success of your claim. However, please remember that these tips are solely to be used as guidance and are not to be considered legal advice.
All personal injury claims must be made within three years of the accident occurring. If your injury was not apparent right away, the three-year time limit begins from the date you were aware your injury was caused by an accident in a shop, also known as the date of knowledge.
Our solicitors will take you through the entire claims process, ensuring you receive the maximum amount of compensation possible. Compensation can help to cover expenses incurred as a result of your injury, including:

I’d just like to give a very positive feedback to Ansa Rashid took on my case & finally got things moving. Before that I had Susan Mason who never answered my calls or emails & the case was ongoing still 3 years on. Ansa took over, got things moving & even through her busy day rang me mostly every week, sometimes on the phone an hour or so. I can not fault this woman she is amazing at her job. Very professional, caring, trustworthy & motivational. Plenty of times I wanted to to throw the towel in but she just wouldn’t let me give up. The case took 4 years in the end & even though we didn’t win I’d still recommend her to everyone. Thank you Ansa you are a star In the making

I was involved in an accident which was not my fault, and was recommended to use Aequitas Legal. From the start, the whole journey with the team was both efficient, professional and sophisticated, with everyone essentially making the process so easy. Their ‘in-Case’ App made simple things like documents and letters so accessible, and meant I could access any import documents at anytime in seconds. I first spoke to Sucheet, who was the gentleman in charge of the company, who explained how everything would work, and pointed me in the direction of Connor, who would be my main liaison during the case. Together, they both ensured I was given the best advice, and seamlessly helped me through the case, which was concluded with a positive outcome! I could not recommend this company more, and will always be my go-to firm.
I was amazed on how determined the team were in seeing my case through. If you are looking for a reliable, easy and transparent team to handle your case, here they are. I would like to thank Somia who I believe either led or coordinated my case for doing a fantastic job in both seeing the case through and communication.
The team at Aequitas Legal were excellent. They were very responsive to questions with appropriate answers as well as being very supportive. They reassured my husband & I throughout our case & helped to acquire an amazing settlement of our case without having to attend court. I would greatly recommend their services to anybody unreservedly.
Highly recommend Aequitas who have recently dealt with my successful case. Special thanks to James Sloane who made the process much easier ; very professional, friendly and happy to explain everything simply. Also very encouraging and supportive with regular updates as well as spot on with getting paperwork and documents organised.
For someone like myself who has never been involved in a legal process I'm delighted with how my case was handled with this company.
Fantastic service from Ansa. Shes worked hard on my case and kept me up to date and well informed on everything that was happening. Pleasure to deal with. She deserves the 5stars!
