Slips are quite a common way to fall or experience an accident. Any slippery surface could easily lead one or both feet to slide out from underneath you. This pitches you off-balance and could soon put you on the floor.
In the past supermarket slip compensation has been paid to individuals who have incurred an injury while slipping over in a supermarket. The people who run the supermarket must ensure they follow all the health and safety rules in operation at any one time.
This means they need to keep the floor clean and free from potential hazards and problems. If this is done, and if appropriate warning signs are put out whenever a spillage occurs or if the floor is wet from cleaning, the odds of slipping can be very much reduced.
What about supermarket slip compensation for accidents that happen outside?
During the colder months of the year there is a possibility the ground could become icy or slippery from frost. Those in charge of the supermarket should ensure all pedestrian walkways outside the supermarket that form part of their premises – including car park areas – are suitably gritted. This will get rid of ice and frost and make the area safer for those visiting the supermarket.
If you fall on ice that has not been gritted, you could be entitled to claim supermarket slip compensation. It is very easy to break a wrist or ankle in these circumstances, or incur another injury to your ligaments or tendons. In any event it could lead to an injury that will prevent you from doing normal things for a while.
