Millions of people visit the major supermarkets such as Asda, Tesco, Morrisons and Sainsbury’s every year where hundreds, if not thousands, of people are injured as a result of a slip or a fall at their supermarket. A slip at a supermarket can lead to injured wrists, knees, cuts and bruising, and sometimes even more severe injuries such as fractured ankles, hips and broken legs.
All businesses are expected to take a reasonable amount of care to ensure that their customers are safe. For instance, a busy supermarket is required to mark wet floors with adequate signs, and substances and fluids that have leaked on the floor from food, drink or other liquids are meant to be cleaned up as soon as possible to prevent customers from slipping. However, sometimes these things get overlooked and if a member of the public is injured as a result of a trip or slip, then they could be entitled to compensation.
If you was injured at a supermarket then you will need to prove that the supermarkets actions were negligent, and that it was the supermarkets negligence that was to blame for your slip or fall.
If you did get injured at a supermarket then the staff should have ensured that your details were recorded in an accident book, and also provided you with an accident form so that you could complete a record of the injury that you have sustained.
To pursue a claim, other evidence such as a photograph of the spot where you were injured will help support your claim, or if CCTV recorded the incident, then this would be useful too. If you were with another person at the time and they witnessed the accident, or if another shopper witnessed the slip, then their testimony would also make useful evidence.
Immediately following a slip that led to an injury it is essential to seek medical treatment. This is to assess the seriousness of your injury as even a minor fall can leave someone with a long term injury if it isn’t identified. The record from your medical treatment can also be used as evidence.
Once the evidence has been collected, an experienced injury claims solicitor will determine if there is a case. If there is, the evidence will be presented to the supermarket, and they will have three weeks to respond to the claim.
