HAVE you been shopping at your local supermarket and had an accident that could have been avoided?

HAVE you been shopping at your local supermarket and had an accident that could have been avoided?

Perhaps you slipped on a wet floor or a badly constructed display fell on you.

Whatever the cause, you can make a supermarket accident claim. It sounds like an alien proposition, but all supermarkets have a duty of care to their customers as soon as they enter the shop.

If you have an accident while you are in their premises, the supermarket may be liable and open to a compensation claim, depending on the individual circumstances.

Slipping accidents

If you slipped and injured yourself in a supermarket whether it was due to a puddle of water, spilt liquid or food, such as loose grapes that had fallen on the floor, it is the supermarket's responsibility to ensure warning signs are put up and that the mess is cleared up to prevent accidents occurring. Signs and clearing spillages are part of the supermarket's responsibility to your safety and, if signs are missing, or spillages are left, this negligence could be cause for an accident compensation claim.

Trips or falls

Tripped over while doing your weekly shopping at a supermarket?

If you've tripped over boxes, pallets or other obstacles left on the shop floor and suffered an injury, you should give National Accident HelplineT a call to talk about making a compensation claim.

Falling displays

Have you been hit by unstable supermarket displays or hanging signs that have fallen down? As with slips and trips, the supermarket or retailer may be responsible for your accident, and therefore may have to pay you compensation if you suffered an injury. Calling National Accident HelplineT could help determine if you have a compensation claim, depending on the circumstances of the accident. - Tips from the Internet
