Our team of no win, no fee solicitors at claimssolicitors.co.uk have a wide range of experience in dealing with the large variety of claims that can arise out of supermarket accidents.
Supermarkets and superstores, owned by large companies, are usually fully aware of their responsibility to ensure the safety of shoppers at all times. So if you are the victim of an accident in a supermarket that was not your fault it may be that you can make a claim for compensation against them. Injuries in supermarket accidents typically involve:
- Slipping on spillages of liquids or food
- Slipping on wet and slippery surfaces such as after cleaning
- Tripping over items such as boxes and packaging or stock trolleys
- Falls in car parks
- Falls on entrance steps or escalators
By far the most common supermarket accident is the first one i.e. spilt items causing people to slip onto the floor or even fall onto shelving or chiller cabinets. It is the supermarket's legal duty to train staff to clear up such spillages as soon as possible after they happen.
As with other accidents, try to get details of witnesses to the supermarket accident if you can, as once the offending items are cleared up there will be no physical evidence.
