Slipping accidents on squashed tomatoes in Aldi
Aldi has a duty to protect the health and safety of its customers and to take all reasonably practicable steps to prevent slips on its premises. This includes developing effective cleaning systems, so that spilled and fallen produce is cleaned up before customers can slip on it.
If Aldi fails to meet this responsibility, and you slip on a squashed tomato and suffer an injury, you may be able to claim compensation. The condition of the tomato could reveal whether or not Aldi has acted negligently – if the tomato is fresh and clean, it might be assumed that it has recently fallen to the floor, so the company could not reasonably be expected to have dealt with the hazard before it caused an injury. However, if the tomato is dirty, squashed and trodden in, it will be obvious that it fell on the floor quite a while ago and should have been cleaned up. This will help you to demonstrate negligence and support your slip at Aldi compensation claim.
Proving negligence and losses after slipping on squashed tomatoes at Aldi
If you have slipped on a squashed tomato at Aldi, you may be able to support your personal injury compensation claim by following these steps:
– Gather evidence to support your compensation claim
Evidence that can demonstrate that Aldi behaved in a negligent manner include photographs of the tomato you slipped on, the contact details of anyone who witnessed your accident, and details of the Aldi store it occurred in. You should also report the accident to Aldi and ensure they keep a record of it.
