Supermarkets have a duty of care towards their staff and the general public and must take all reasonably practicable steps to ensure their premises are as safe as possible. This will involve developing effective management systems, completing regular risk assessments and carefully adhering to health and safety regulations.

Supermarket accident compensation claims

People regularly suffer from personal injuries in supermarkets. Retail compensation claims generally involve one of the following factors:

–          Slips and trips

The overwhelming majority of supermarket accidents are slips and trips. These could be caused by spilled food and drink, obstructions in aisles, poor cleaning regimes or uneven flooring. Preventable slips and trips in supermarkets are all-too-common, making up the bulk of personal injury claims against supermarkets.

–          Manual handling

While manual handling injuries are normally experienced in accidents at work, customers can also sustain these injuries in supermarkets, such as when heavy items for sale are stored in a negligent fashion.

–          Being struck by falling objects

Improper shelf stacking can cause items to fall on shoppers. While this will not lead to a serious personal injury in most cases, in some instances it leads to eye injuries, head injuries and even brain injuries.

–          Being struck by moving vehicles

Some of the moving vehicles seen in retailers include fork-lift trucks, low-rise pallet trucks and customers’ vehicles. Retailers should ensure that vehicle and pedestrian traffic are separated and that any employees that use vehicles are properly trained and always use the vehicle in a safe manner.

Make a supermarket injury compensation claim

If a supermarket has been negligent in its duty of care towards the public, and this caused you to suffer a personal injury, you can claim compensation against the supermarket. You will be compensated for your pain, suffering, and any financial losses you faced.

To increase your likelihood of success in your supermarket accident compensation claim, you should collect evidence that supports your case. This could be photographs of the area the accident occurred in, medical records detailing the extent of your injury, and the contact information of anyone who saw your accident. You should also report the incident to the supermarket and ensure it is recorded in their accident book.

Supermarkets must have public liability insurance to protect them in the event of an accident on their premises. This means that your personal injury compensation claim will be handled by an insurance company, instead of by the retailer itself.

You will need to use the services of skilled and experienced personal injury solicitors if you are to receive all the money you deserve. We at Clearwater Solicitors are ready to help you out. Call us on 08000 430 430 or fill in our online enquiry form to request a call back.
