Slips are a common factor in personal injury claims at supermarkets, and Aldi should take reasonable steps to deal with this risk and prevent people from injuring themselves due to the retailer’s negligence. It should implement effective cleaning systems, so that spilt yoghurt is cleaned up quickly before it leads to a personal injury.
You may be able to demonstrate that Aldi has failed in this regard if you can take a photograph of the yoghurt you slipped on. If it is fresh and clean, it could be argued that the spillage happened recently, and that staff at Aldi would not have had the opportunity to have cleaned it up before the slipping accident occurred. However, if it is dirty, this will demonstrate that it had been on the floor for a long time and that the retailer was therefore negligent in its duty of care towards its customers.
As well as photographs of the spillage that led to your accident, a range of other forms of evidence can support your compensation claim. If you have done the following, you should have maximised your chances of succeeding in your personal injury claim.
– Inform the retailer about your injury
Inform staff in the Aldi store that you have suffered a personal injury after slipping on yoghurt and ensure they record the incident in their accident book.
– Record the contact information of any witnesses
Record the names and phone numbers of anyone who witnessed your slip on yoghurt in Aldi, and provide this information to your personal injury solicitors.
