Slip, trip and fall accident claims against supermarkets
The supermarket management in stores such as Asda, Tesco, Morrisons and most other shops want to avoid a slip and fall accident claim and therefore tell their staff to take care when putting out stock and not to leave trip hazards lying around. Various trip hazards are sometimes left in a dangerous position and customers or staff do suffer a trip or slip and fall injury. At times empty cardboard boxes from the stock are left on the floor which can cause customers a slipping or tripping accident. Other times it may be from a cable lying across the shop floor from a cleaning machine causing a hazard.
When a spillage has occurred or the floor has been cleaned and mopped, there should be warning signs in place if the floor remains wet. This will warn the staff and customers of the dangerous area and help prevent any slip and fall accidents from happening.
Potholes resulting in slip, trip and fall accident claims
Potholes are a major reason for compensation claims through causing a slip and fall accident. There are various factors as to whether or not a claim can be made on such defects. As a guide, if the defect measures an inch or more in depth, and is on a pavement or road it should be possible to make a slip and fall injury claim. If you have suffered an slip and fall injury due to a pothole, it is advisable to take photographs of the area with measurements using a tape measure if possible. Also any witnesses to the incident or defect, particularly if the witness is able to state how long the defect has been there for, would be useful.
Raised, broken or unstable paving slabs
Raised, broken or unstable paving slabs, are common place and therefore the cause of many slip and fall injury claims. As with potholes, as a guide, the slabs should be raised or dipped by at least one inch, and photographs should be taken of the area as soon as possible following the slip and fall accident.
Uneven pavements slip, trip and fall accident claims
Pavements should be even and level, as with broken slabs or potholes if the pavement dips an inch or more and you sustain an injury you may be able to claim slip and fall compensation.

While some consider a slip and fall accident to be trivial, or a classic example of Britain’s ‘compensation culture’, the reality is that a slip and fall injury can be very serious, with adverse consequences for life.
Public and private organisations have a duty of care to keep visitors safe. Local authorities must keep pavements and public highways in a safe condition for public use.
Some causes of slip, trip and fall accident claims:
