How the weekly shop could result in a personal injury claim

When you visit the supermarket, your expectations are going to be that you can pick up a couple of bits and pieces, or your weekly shop, and you will no doubt hope to do so with a minimum of stress. But unfortunately, supermarkets can be a hazardous experience.

We have dealt with many instances where shoppers have slipped on wet floors, suffered an injury, and then gone on to seek compensation for that injury. For example, jars or bottles can fall from shelves and spill out sticky liquids that are not cleared up properly, if at all. Individuals shopping in the fruit and vegetable section can sometimes find that they fall victim to a rogue grape or piece of fruit that has fallen onto the floor and caused an injury. Supermarket roofs can leak and leave a small wet patch on the floor, or excessive rain and a lack of correct health and safety proceedures can lead to wet patches near entrances, both of which can cause slipping accidents.

It is the responsibility of the shop owner/manager to clean any mess up, and to have a proper system of inspection, so that customers to the shop are prevented form sustaining personal injuries. It is also their responsibility to use hazard signs to make customers aware of any spillages or leaks that are in the process of being cleaned up.

There is a risk of head injuries caused by objects falling from overloaded or carelessly stacked shelves. Heavy, blunt objects, such as tins of baked beans, could cause a closed head injury and lead to concussion and serious headaches.

The supermarket is also liable for making sure that shelves are stacked safely. It is possible that any injury that customers sustain in supermarkets can be claimed for. We deal with compensation claims on behalf of clients who have been injured in a supermarket on a regular basis, and have a great deal of experience when it comes to this sort of claim.
