Sainsbury’s is one of the UK’s largest retailers, and as such, it is seen in many slip and trip compensation claims. The majority of accidents that occur in retailers are slips and trips, and in many of these cases, a supermarket’s negligence is to blame.
When Sainsbury’s fails to protect the health and safety of its customers, and this leads to someone sustaining a personal injury, then the injured party can make a claim for compensation and be recompensed for their pain, suffering and losses.
What leads to slips and trips in Sainsbury’s? The following hazards frequently arise in supermarkets and should be dealt with by the company before they pose a risk to the public:
Food and drink, when spilled on the floor, can lead to slips and trips. Good cleaning systems should deal with this hazard when it arises.
Cleaning staff should be trained how to complete their job without posing risks to the public. People can slip over when damp, soapy floors are not properly marked.
Poor lighting can be a problem in Sainsbury’s car parks, and people can trip over kerbs and land on the hard concrete when they cannot see properly.
Uneven flooring or loose carpets can lead to slips and trips. Sainsbury’s should properly maintain its stores to deal with any uneven flooring.
