How Much are Waitrose Compensation Claims in the UK Worth?
The amount of compensation that you are entitled to will depend on the severity of your injuries. If you are forced to suffer a long-term health condition, you will be entitled to a larger amount than if you made a speedy recovery. The compensation you receive will also be based on the level of negligence that Waitrose has displayed towards you.
If you’re looking to make a successful no-win, no-fee claim against Waitrose, or any other supermarket chain, contact Tylers Solicitors today. The final amount of compensation that you receive will take a range of different factors into consideration, such as:
- General Damages, such as Pain and Suffering.
- Long-Term Health Conditions.
- Medical and Travel Expenses.
- Recovery Period.
- Transport Costs.
- Loss of Wages During Hospitalisation.
- Psychological Damages.
Below, we’ve listed come of the supermarket injury compensation amounts that you might expect to receive. Be aware that these are simply guideline amounts, and your final compensation amount will take all the above factors into consideration as well. This could leave you with a higher or lower amount depending on your circumstances.

What are the Most Common Causes of Supermarket Injury?
All retail outlets can be potentially dangerous areas if not maintained correctly. Some of the most common hazards can include:
- Spillages and Wet Floors.
- Improperly Stacked Shelves.
- Unmarked Hazards.
These can all lead to a range of minor to serious physical injuries.
What Causes Spillages and Wet Floors?
Waitrose floors and surfaces can become unsafe if a customer has spilled something on the floor. Failing to clearly mark or dry a wet floor can lead to slips, trips and falls. Freezers and fridges can also leak, leading to unsafe surfaces.
Can I Claim for Food Poisoning from Waitrose?
If you’ve suffered food poisoning due to out-of-date food or mis-prepared food from Waitrose, you may be able to claim for compensation. You need to have purchased the food once it was already past its use-by date.
What’s the Difference Between Use-By, Best Before and Sell By?
Retail outlets often use three different dates to represent a food’s quality and longevity. These are:
- Best Before – The product’s quality may deteriorate after this date but can still be sold.
- Use By – It is a criminal offence to sell any item after its Use By date has passed.
- Sell By – The Sell By date is often only used for stock control. It does not usually relate to the other dates.
