Asda has a duty to ensure the safety of its customers, such as by maintaining high standards of cleanliness and remedying any hazards as soon as they arise. When the company fails to do so and people suffer a personal injury as a result, they can make a claim for slipping and tripping in Asda. Slips and trips can cause serious injuries, including back and head injuries, and people deserve to be recompensed for their pain, suffering and other losses if the injury was caused by Asda’s negligence.
Some of the factors that can lead to a slip or trip in Asda include:
– Wet flooring without adequate warning signs
– Spilled flood and drinks that have not been cleaned up
– Obstacles in aisles, such as tins, cardboard boxes or packing tape
– Poor lighting
– Uneven flooring or loose rugs
– Kerbs and other hazards in car parks
– Leaking freezers
The supermarket should have management systems and cleaning processes in place to deal with these hazards before they pose a danger to the public.
You will be able to increase your likelihood of succeeding in your personal injury compensation claim if you do the following:
– Receive medical treatment for your personal injury
– Collect evidence that supports your claims, such as photographs of the item you slipped over
– Gather the contact information of anyone who witnessed the accident
