How Much Could Your Sainsbury’s Compensation Claims Be Worth in the UK?
The amount of compensation that you receive will depend on several different factors. The most important factor is the severity of your condition. For example, you will receive a great deal more compensation for a long-term, life-altering injury than a short-term condition.
Some of the other factors which will always be taken into consideration during any supermarket injury claim will include:
- The Level of Negligence Displayed by the Supermarket.
- General Damages, including Your Pain and Suffering.
- Any Long-Term Health Conditions, including Psychological Damage.
- Travel or Medical Expenses Incurred.
- Loss of Wages Due to Injury or Hospitalisation.
In the table below, we’ve listed some of the compensation amounts that you could be entitled to. The amount of compensation you receive will depend on the range of factors above. Your final compensation amount will normally be within these guidelines. However, there are occasions when the overall compensation amount will be higher or lower than the guideline amounts.

What are the Most Common Causes of a Sainsbury's Supermarket Injury?
Any retail outlet can be a potentially harmful place if not managed correctly. Supermarkets need to be maintained and any hazards identified quickly. The most common causes of Sainsbury’s injuries can include:
- Wet Floors and Spillages.
- Incorrectly Stacked Shelves.
- Uneven Surfaces.
- Unmarked Hazards.
What are the Common Causes of Spillages and Wet Floors?
The floors of Sainsbury’s, and any supermarket, can become unsafe when wet. These floors become wet after cleaning, fridges or freezers leaking or customer spillages which create unsafe surfaces. The surfaces can become extremely unsafe if not dried and cleaned up promptly.
What are Incorrectly Stacked Shelves?
If shelving units are stocked too high, or with too great a weight, they can become unsafe. It is possible for these shelves to break, or simply spill stock onto the floor below. Falling stock can be a serious risk for customers and employees.
What Counts as an Unmarked Hazard?
There are dozens of potential hazards which can cause issues in supermarkets like Sainsbury’s. These all need to be clearly marked or blocked off to prevent access. These unmarked hazards can include:
- Uneven Surfaces.
- Wet Areas.
- Potholes and Other Potential Trip Hazards.
Can I Claim for Food Poisoning from Sainsbury's Cafes and Delis?
If you’ve suffered food poisoning as a result of Sainsbury’s mis-preparing or serving contaminated foods, you could be able to claim for compensation. This food needs to have been sold to you in an unsafe condition or passed its Use By date.
What’re the Differences Between Use By, Best Before and Sell By Dates?
Supermarkets use dates to indicate a food’s condition. These include:
- Best Before – Can still be sold after the date but may have deteriorated.
- Use By – No products can be sold after their Use By date.
- Sell By – No legal relevance but is used for stock control.
