Can I make a claim for a Supermarket Accident?

All retail outlets and their owners, regardless of their size have a duty to provide a safe environment to visiting members of the public under the Occupiers Liability Act 1957. This act provides protection for customers on the premises of the occupier whether it's inside the shop, in the car park or in the surrounding area.

If you have been injured in a shopping accident and it wasn't your fault, contact us as you may be entitled to make an injury compensation claim.

Types of Supermarket Injury Claims

Large superstores such as Tesco, Morrisons, Asda, Sainsbury's, Waitrose etc. take Health and Safety very seriously. However due to the amount of people who visit each day, unfortunately accidents still occur and below are some of the more common types:

  • Tripping hazards - Product or packaging left in the aisles
  • Falling objects - Over stacked or uneven shelves, poorly built displays
  • Slipping Injuries - Product spillages, wet floors, unsafe surfaces
  • Faulty equipment - Shopping trolleys, escalators
  • Unsafe facilities - Poorly maintained toilets, changing rooms or baby changing facilities

What to do if you're involved in a Shopping Accident

  • Report the accident to a member of staff
  • Seek medical attention for any injuries sustained
  • Make sure that the accident is recorded in the accident book
  • Record details of anyone who witnessed the accident
  • Try to take photos of the accident location and the cause
