More information on supermarket accident claims
You should not be deterred from making a supermarket accident claims just because of the size of the company. If the supermarket was at fault for an accident, we can claim the compensation you are entitled to for your injuries.
If having suffered an accident in a supermarket, regardless of whether it is owned by Tesco, Asda, Sainsburys, Morrisons, Somerfield, Aldi, Lidl or any other supermarket, a claim for injury compensation can be made if the accident was due to supermarket negligence.
Supermarkets attract millions of customers every week and employ thousands of staff. Everybody should be safe at all times when shopping or working in the store as they have a duty of care to all on their premises.
Supermarket accident claims for slipping in the store
Often the cause of a slip accident in a supermarket is due to a wet floor. Supermarket staff should ensure any spillage is cleared up quickly to help avoid customer accidents.
A leaking freezer or chiller cabinet can cause a hazard and are the cause of many slip accidents. When cleaners in the store mop the floor or use a cleaning machine they should ensure they are not putting staff or customers at risk of slipping. Any area which presents a slip hazard should be highlighted with clear warning signs. If there were no wet floor signs in place close to the wet floor and a slip accident caused injuries, then a claim for compensation is possible.
Supermarket accident claims for tripping in the store
As supermarket staff are putting out stock, they should ensure the items are not placed in dangerous positions on the floor which staff or customers may trip on. The empty cardboard boxes and packaging can cause a trip accident hazard if not put away properly by the supermarket employees. Packaging tape should be broken and removed from the shop floor as it is easy for employees and customers to catch a foot in the loop and fall, causing an injury.
Supermarket accident claims for being injured by falling stock
Some Supermarket accident claims arise from shoppers being injured by stock falling from a shelf. This could be from where the shelf has been overloaded with stock or the shelf has been incorrectly set up and collapses. Any hanging signs in the supermarket should be secured sufficiently so they do not fall and injure shoppers or workers.
Supermarket accident claims for a damaged or faulty trolley accident
Supermarket trolleys should be fully maintained on a regular basis. Some trolleys have a broken wheel and are often referred to as the ‘trolley having a mind of its own’. If an accident due to a faulty trolley happens, then a claim may be possible.
Any accident in a supermarket should be reported to the store staff and recorded in the supermarket accident book. As many details surrounding the accident should be logged. If there was a witness to the accident, it is useful to include their details in the accident report. You should ensure you are entirely happy with the accident report that has been written by the store staff before signing anything.
Any injury caused by a supermarket accident would need to be recorded on medical records in order to claim supermarket injury compensation. If the injury is insufficient to require medical attention, then a claim would not be possible with us.
Once we have accepted your supermarket injury claim for compensation, and liability has been admitted by the shop, a medical examination will be arranged by the injury solicitor. The report which is written will be used to help determine the level of compensation to be applied for the injuries suffered.
All supermarkets, whether Tesco, Asda, Sainsbury’s, Morrisons, Somerfield, Aldi, Spar, Iceland or Co-Op to name a few, have insurance which will pay compensation to injured employees and customers who have suffered an accident in a supermarket due to negligence of the store.
Accident claims for supermarket workers can be made whether the accident was caused by work colleague negligence, or if there has been a lack of training or health and safety instruction given.
The supermarket employer is required to ensure all workers are supplied with the correct safety equipment and that any equipment used is in a safe condition.
There is a three year time scale in which to claim for being injured in a supermarket accident. We usually find that the vast majority of supermarket claims are made within the first few months of the accident happening.
