Supermarket Injury Compensation Claims
You shouldn’t expect that something as common as shopping would lead to an accident. But slips, trips and falls in supermarkets and shopping centres are a frequent occurrence. The owner, centre manager, and shops in the complex all have a duty of care to ensure supermarkets and shopping centres are safe. Both for the customers who shop and the staff who work there. Legislation like the Occupiers’ Liability Act 1957 clearly sets out their responsibilities
If you have been injured while you have been shopping, talk to The Compensation Experts. This initial enquiry is free, and there is no obligation to proceed with a claim after you have spoken to us. However our advisors can give you the legal information and advice so you can decide what to do next.
We offer clients a No Win No Fee agreement (*Conditions may apply. Please see details at the bottom of the page.) to remove the financial risk associated with claiming compensation. So you do not have to pay legal costs if your claim is unsuccessful.
What is a Claim for a Supermarket or Shopping Centre Accident?
Examples of claims for accidents in supermarkets or shopping centres include:
- Slipping on wet surfaces
- Tripping over uneven floors or obstacles left in walkways
- Being struck by a falling object, such as an item falling from a shelf
- Accidents in car parks due to poor layouts or bad lighting
- Malfunctioning lifts and automatic doors
All of these are reasonably easy to avoid. However, inadequate procedures, insufficient training, or being short-staffed can quickly turn what should be a safe and pleasant environment into a perilous one.
Claiming Compensation for an Accident in a Supermarket or Shopping Centre
Starting a compensation claim against a shopping centre, supermarket, or any large organisation, can feel like an insurmountable task. Especially if you are still recovering physically. You do not need to worry. The Compensation Experts are here to help you. This will be from your initial consultation to the resolution of your claim.
We work with a select group of personal injury solicitors around the country. We will then match you with one with the right experience to ensure you obtain maximum compensation. They will act on your behalf to build the case that proves your injury. It will also show it could have been avoided if the owners or operators of the supermarket or shopping centre had acted correctly. This can be either through negligence or human error.
Your compensation payment will cover the physical damage you have sustained. But it should also allow for any additional expenses you have had as the result of your injury. The Compensation Experts have helped clients who have lost income through being unable to work, or who have had private medical care. This is so they do not have to wait for medical attention or rehabilitative treatment on the NHS. Claiming compensation is not about being greedy, it is about receiving a fair and appropriate payment for your injury and inconvenience. As well as the personal satisfaction of having the responsible party acknowledge their role.
You can either call The Compensation Experts directly or, if you prefer, complete our online form for us to reply at a time that suits you.
