Like all other businesses, Marks and Spencer has a duty to protect the health and safety of its employees and the general public, and must take all reasonably practicable steps to prevent accidents happening in its stores. When it fails to deal with hazards effectively and people suffer injuries as a result of this negligence, then the victim can make a Marks and Spencer injury compensation claim against the company.
Some of the key dangers seen in Marks and Spencer and other supermarkets include:
Spilled food and drinks, leaking refrigerators, obstructions in aisles, wet floors and poor housekeeping can lead to slips and trips in Marks and Spencer.
– Falling items
Cans and other stock can fall from shelves or furnishings and displays can fall, and when these items hit customers or employees, they can cause serious injuries, including head injuries and severe lacerations.
– Food poisoning
If Marks and Spencer serves spoiled food, then customers can develop serious illnesses. Proving food poisoning claims can be difficult, and if you want to make one, you may want to speak to the Environmental Health Department as well as Clearwater Solicitors.
In October 2005, a woman was shopping at Marks and Spencer in Bath when she slipped on a two grapes that had fallen into the aisle, breaking her shoulder in the fall.
