However, you will need to be ready to start your claim within the personal injury claims time limit, which is generally three years. The guide begins by illustrating what an accident it a betting shop could potentially be, what makes an accident eligible for compensation and how the betting shop may be liable for any injuries. We also cover the concept of Duty of Care and how it should be applied.

The middle part of this guide consists of a number of sections, each of which gives examples of possible accidents that may result due to error or negligence. The cause of the accidents and why the betting shop may be liable under UK law.

In the latter part of this guide, we cover the financial aspects of the claim. We have included a table that lists amounts used by the Judicial College for specific injuries. We have also given a list of some of the common types of damages a settlement could be made up of. You will also find an overview of our national claims service in this part of the guide. This is a simple to use, yet effective service, that offers you a way to have your claim processed at a reduced financial risk.

Finally, we give a list of useful external resources, and also some information on where people who have a problem with betting can go for help.

What Is An Accident In A Betting Shop?

In this guide, we take a look at how to sue a gambling company for gambling shop injury compensation. An accident which happens at a betting shop will not automatically require compensation.

In order to establish if an accident causing an injury qualifies for compensation we must first look at responsibility, was the betting shop or a member of staff responsible for the accident which happened? Could the accident have been prevented? If the accident happened due to a lapse in the duty of care then the basis for a claim may exist. If the injury that was caused was due to negligence then you may be eligible to pursue betting shop personal injury claims for yourself.

Examples Of Accidents That Could Happen In A Betting Shop

Here we have included potential accidents that could happen in a betting shop if the correct legislation and health and safety laws are not applied. A betting shop has a duty of care not only to its customers but also its staff to provide a safe and healthy environment.

  • Slips, trips and falls could happen if there is a spillage that has not been cleaned up, no warning signs have been present after the floor has been freshly cleaned, floors are uneven, damaged floor coverings that have not been repaired or replaced.
  • An accident at work, if the correct training is not given such as manual handling and employees are expected to carry out lifting and carrying tasks which could result in a manual handling injury.
  • Accidents in a storage area, it is vital that items are stored correctly on racking and storage shelves that are maintained and repaired when needed to stop items from falling on to staff.
  • Injuries caused by a criminal act such as assault, if the premises are vulnerable to violent attacks the necessary steps should be put in place i.e. the use of a security guard to protect staff from being harmed.

If you are unsure as to whether your betting shop accident was due to the negligence of the betting shop operator call Legal Expert today and take advantage of our free legal consultation. Why not see if you could make betting shop personal injury claims today?

Storage Area Accidents

Storage accidents that could happen in a place of work are usually due to the following;

  • Manual handling accidents, if an employee is not trained correctly when it comes to moving objects in the workplace they could suffer manual handling accidents.
  • Stock falling from shelving, all employees should be trained comprehensively on how items should be stacked correctly as so to avoid items falling from shelves and racking causing injuries.
  • Equipment such as a trolley causing an injury, defected trolleys and other mechanisms used to help stock items need to be repaired or replaced in order to reduce employee injuries.

If you have suffered a storage area injury due to little or no training you may have the basis for a workplace accident claim.

I Slipped In A Betting Shop, Could I Claim Compensation?

Slips, trips and falls are a common way that a customer could be injured in store and are a common focus of betting shop personal injury claims. This simple, yet sometimes very serious shopping accident could potentially be caused by hazards such as:

  • Wet or dirty floors that should have been either cleaned, or signposted as a hazard.
  • Damaged floor coverings such as cracked tiles or torn carpets.
  • Items left on the floor causing a tripping hazard.

If you slipped due to an accident that could have been prevented had the right health and safety procedures been put in place, in which resulted in an avoidable injury then call Legal Expert today.

I Had An Accident At Work In A Betting Shop, Could I Claim Compensation?

Every employer in the UK has a legal obligation to ensure that employees are provided with a safe and healthy working environment, at all times. Health & Safety legislation must be complied with, and failure in compliance protocols which causes an employee to become injured may result in the company being liable for any harm suffered.

If you are injured at work, then reporting an accident in a shop is a vital step you must take. Be sure to fill in the company accident book. If you feel that your employer was responsible for the accident which caused your injury due to negligence you may be eligible to pursue betting shop personal injury claims for work-related reasons.

Retailers Liability For Accidents And Injuries Suffered

To answer the question is a store liable for a customer injury?, you need to understand how you are protected under UK law. First of all, the Health & Safety regulations that protect employees, also protect members of the public. Additionally, there are other laws, such as those laid out in the Occupier’s Liability Act 1957, which are aimed at keeping you safe while visiting the premises of a third party. If you are injured on private property, due to the fact that these regulations have not been followed in their entirety, you could have a valid claim.

Please read on for more information about betting shop personal injury claims and the like.

Criminal Injuries To Staff Or Customers

As we have mentioned previously, every company must provide a safe environment for its staff and customers. This includes ensuring that sufficient safety protocols are in place, to protect customers and staff from criminal injuries caused by assault.

If a premises is constantly under attack by customers being violent with staff or each other then safety measures may need to be in place to prevent any harm from being caused and to reduce any attacks. If a company fails to do this and employees are frequently attacked then they may be ale to pursue a claim for injuries suffered.

An employee who is attacked or a customer who is attacked may be able to claim using the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA), for the physical harm that has been suffered.
