Aldi has a duty of care towards its customers and must take all reasonably practicable steps to prevent anyone suffering an injury in a slip or trip. When it fails in this duty, it can find itself liable in personal injury claims.Although Aldi is famous for its low prices, its value-for-money and its no-frills shopping service, it still has the same health and safety obligations as any other supermarket, and should ensure its premises are as safe as possible.
Slips are the most common cause of personal injuries in Aldi, as there are a huge number of slipping hazards in retailers. In fact, slips and trips accounted for around one-quarter of all injuries to employees in the retail sector, as well as around 50% of all reported accidents involving members of the public. This means Aldi must take the dangers posed by slipping accidents seriously and effectively implement strategies to reduce this risk.
Some of the reasons people slip in Aldi include:
– Spillages, including spilled drinks and food
– Leaking refrigerators
– Poor cleaning systems leading to wet floors
– Ice in Aldi car parks or at the entrance
An Aldi customer was leaving the premises when he slipped on a slippery patch caused by a blocked drain at the front of the store. Staff at the retailer had been aware of the slippery patch and the blocked drain since the beginning of the working day, but had failed to take any remedial action. The company was therefore found to have been negligent in its duty of care towards the public. The victim of the slip at Aldi received over £3,000 compensation for their personal injuries.
The value of a slip and trip compensation claim will depend on the extent of your personal injuries, and any financial losses you have sustained as a result of the accident. It’s not only members of the public who can claim for slips and trips at Aldi – employees of the company who have an accident at work may also be able to make a claim. We have the skills and experienced required to help people succeed in their compensation claim and get all the money they deserve for their personal injuries.
