Cash and Carry accident compensation claims

Wholesaler Cash and Carry stores have a duty of care towards their workforce and customers and must take all reasonably practicable steps to ensure people are not injured on their premises. This will involve conducting regular risk assessments, maintaining a clean and tidy workplace, putting effective management systems in place and adhering to all health and safety regulations. When a Cash and Carry is negligent towards this duty of care, victims can make a Cash and Carry injury claim.
Cash and Carry injury compensation claims frequently involve the following accidents:

–          Slips and trips, such as on rubbish or wet flooring

–          Falling items, such as food and drink, furnishings, doors, windows and displays

–          Vehicle accidents, such as forklift truck accidents

Cash and Carry injury claim case study

In 2000, a customer at Cash and Carry noticed a fire door was unsecured and had been left leaning against shelving. The door fell over as she passed, hitting her in the left shoulder and pushing her on to her trolley. She sustained soft tissue damage to the neck and shoulder, which exacerbated a previous health condition. The retailer had failed to properly secure or store the fire door, which led to a completely preventable accident. The Cash and Carry’s insurers admitted liability, and a year after the accident, the victim received £5,000 compensation.
