Compensation for injuries sustained in a supermarket

If you have sustained an injury while in a supermarket then you may wish to consider making a claim for compensation. Common injuries in these kinds of establishments include trips and falls due to obstructions, head injuries caused by falling items to a much lesser extent, with more severe injuries including collisions with mechanical objects which could result in broken bones. If you believe that you have been the victim of negligence while in a supermarket and you have sustained injuries as a result, then you shouldn’t have to suffer in silence. It is their responsibility to ensure that it is safe for customers to shop and if they have failed to do this then you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation.

Where could an injury occur in this situation?

If you believe you have sustained injuries while in a supermarket as a result of negligence then making a claim could be the best option for you. Some common examples of where an injury might occur include:

·         Claims if you trip on a wet surface

·         Claims if there is no appropriate warnings in place

·         Claims if you are injured by falling goods

·         Claims if you are injured as a result of a another customer

·         Claims if you are injured from a pallet truck or other machinery.

Who might you look to make a claim against?

In general, making a claim as a result of being injured in a supermarket would usually be taken against either the store manager or the company itself, although you could take action against the individual who injured you too. If you believe that their actions have caused you to spend a lengthy time in hospital then you shouldn’t have to suffer in silence, which is why making a claim could be in your best interests. Before you make a final decision on whether or not you should claim however, it is important that you prove an individual’s involvement if you want it to be a success in court.
