How Much Could Your Tesco Compensation Claims be Worth in the UK?

The amount of compensation you will receive depends on the severity of your injuries. If you’ve suffered a long-term health condition, you could be entitled to enough money to support you while you’re recovering. The compensation that you receive will depend on a range of different factors, such as:

  • Pain, Suffering and General Damages.
  • Long-Term Health Conditions.
  • Any Travel or Medical Expenses Incurred.
  • The Length of the Recovery Period.
  • Loss of Wages During Hospitalisation.
  • Any Psychological Damages You’ve Suffered.

Below, we’ve listed some of the amounts you could be entitled to with Tesco compensation claims. The amount of compensation you receive will depend on all the factors above, in addition to other personal circumstances. Your final compensation amount will normally be within these guidelines. However, there will be occasions when your compensation amount is higher or lower than the guideline number.

Tesco Compensation Claims Injury Amounts

Type of Tesco Supermarket Injury Description of Supermarket Injury Amount of Compensation
Minor to Serious Food Poisoning (Severe Toxicosis) If you’ve suffered any kind of food poisoning, from minor to severe toxicosis, that wasn’t your fault, you could claim for compensation. These conditions can resolve themselves in a few days or take many months to recover from. It is also possible for the more serious conditions to take years to fully resolve themselves. It is possible for extremely serious toxicosis to cause permanent stomach issues, including IBS and diarrhoea. £730 to £46,040
Minor to Serious Ankle Injuries If you’ve fallen as a result of a wet floor, spillage or uneven surface that wasn’t clearly marked, you’ll be able to claim compensation. In most cases, these injuries will be resolved within a few weeks. However, some of the more serious injuries can take longer to heal. There is also the risk that these serious ankle injuries can lead to long-term mobility issues. £1,475 to £53,000.
Minor to Serious Head Injuries If you’ve fallen and suffered a head injury in a supermarket, you’ll be able to make a claim for compensation. There is also the risk that incorrectly stacked shelving can cause stock to fall onto employees and customers. Whether you’ve suffered due to incorrect shelf stocking or a lack of signage around potential hazards, get in touch today. While most of these conditions can be recovered from in a short period of time, there is the risk that a head injury can have long-term health conditions. For serious impacts, there is even the risk of long-term brain damage. As such, it is extremely important that you make Tesco compensation claims following a head injury. £11,650 to £307,000.

What are the Most Common Causes of a Tesco Supermarket Injury?

All retail outlets can be potentially dangerous. Supermarkets in particular need to be maintained correctly, and any hazards identified quickly. The most common causes of a Tesco supermarket injury include:

  • Spillages and Wet Floors.
  • Incorrectly Stacked Shelves.
  • Uneven Surfaces.
  • Unmarked Hazards.

What are the Common Causes of Spillages and Wet Floors?

The floors of Tesco’s supermarkets can become unsafe due to spillages and other issues, such as neglecting to dry after cleaning the floor. It is also possible for fridges and freezers to leak, creating slippery and unsafe surfaces.

What are Incorrectly Stacked Shelves?

If shelving units are stocked too high or above their weight limit, they can become unsafe. It is possible for these shelves to break, or simply spill stock. This stock can then land on customers or employees working in the affected aisle.

What Counts as an Unmarked Hazard?

There are many hazards which can create an unsafe space in a Tesco supermarket. These all need to be clearly marked with warning signs or cordoned off to prevent access. These can include:

  • Uneven Surfaces.
  • Wet Areas.
  • Potholes and Trip Hazards.

Can I Claim for Food Poisoning from Tesco?

If Tesco has sold you out of date food, or if you’ve consumed mis-prepared/contaminated food from Tesco’s café/deli, you can make a claim. This food needs to have been sold to you in an unsafe condition or passed its Sell By date.

What’re the Differences Between Use By, Best Before and Sell By Dates?

Supermarkets and retailers use three different dates to represent a food’s conditions. These are:

  • Best Before – Can still be sold after the date but may have deteriorated in quality.
  • Use By – No product can be sold after its Use By date.
  • Sell By – No legal attachments but is used for stock control in retail outlets.
