Accident in a Supermarket
Have you suffered an accident in a supermarket? Supermarkets are some of the busiest retailers in England with continuous large volumes of customers walking through the door. Therefore it’s hardly surprising that these are common places for accidents to occur.
Most accidents in a supermarket occur as a result of poor cleaning and maintenance of the store, so these accidents are preventable. If you feel that you have suffered a Personal Injury after an accident in a supermarket, and feel that this was caused by the stores negligence, you should be eligible to claim for compensation.
One of the most common causes of an accident in a supermarket is slips and trips, often a result of spillages on the floor or obstacles blocking walkways. Floors and walkways should be regularly checked and maintained to a safe standard, free from anything that could present a hazard. Another common cause of accidents in a supermarket is falling objects. This can include promotional advertising, signs, shelving and displays. A falling object, especially a heavy object from a height, has the potential to cause serious injuries but is always preventable if the store is correctly maintained and relevant checks are adhered to.
It is the responsibility of the occupier, in this case the store owner, to provide to you a duty of care and ensure you are safe during your visit. Unfortunately, this duty of care is not always met and can lead to accidents causing minor to very severe injuries.
