Supermarket Accident Claims
Compensation for Supermarket Accidents
An accident in a supermarket is not only embarrassing but is also traumatic if a personal injury has incurred. Just like any other business, supermarkets have a duty of care to prevent accidents on their premise, whether this is in store or even in their car park.
Many people who do have an accident in a supermarket tend not to claim for compensation because either they feel they may not win a case against a large supermarket chain for they do not know the right procedures.
But that’s where DPP Law can help. We have a wealth of knowledge and experience in bringing claims against supermarkets, which means we are more likely to secure maximum compensation for your supermarket injury.
If you slip on a wet floor or fall over an obstacle in the aisle, whether it’s at Tesco, Asda, Sainsbury’s or even a small local supermarket then you may be eligible to make a supermarket accident compensation claim.
Supermarket Accidents include:
- Slip accidents due to spillages, waste or wet floors
- Trip accidents when hazardous obstacles are left unattended
- Fall accidents where there are steps or stairs to navigate
- Falling goods accidents in the supermarket due to incorrectly stacked shelves
- Accidents caused by unsafe trolleys
What should I do if I’m involved in a supermarket accident?
To help aid your potential supermarket accident compensation claim, it is important to complete the following steps:
- Report the supermarket accident to a store manager
- Ensure you complete an accident report form or make sure the accident is recorded in the accident book
- Obtain any witness contact details
- If possible you should try to take photographs of what has caused your accident in the supermarket
