    How to claim supermarket staff injury compensation


    People who work in supermarkets can do a variety of different tasks during the average work day (or night). Shelves will need to be replenished, areas need to be tidied, tills need to be manned and customers may also need assistance throughout the day.

    While most shop workers in supermarkets won’t run into any problems or experience any injuries during their working days, a small number may not be so lucky.

    If the proper procedures are followed, so there is no danger of injury occurring, the staff should be just fine. However there are incidents that may occur that could lead to injuries being sustained in one way or another.

    Examples of why supermarket staff injury compensation might be paid

    Shelves need to be stacked and displays need to be attended to on a regular basis. Goods should always be stacked carefully with attention to how safe they are.

    If a display falls or collapses, perhaps because a shelf has been overloaded or because the items were not stacked safely, you could be hurt if you are hit by them.

    Similarly the floor of the supermarket should be safe and clean at all times. Even if the supermarket is closed for restocking, nothing should be left on the floor and all spillages should be cleaned up swiftly.

    If someone is hurt because they tripped over packaging another worker left on the floor, or because someone spilled something while unpacking it and they didn’t take steps to clean it up, this might lead to an injury for you.

    Consider a claim for supermarket staff injury compensation now

    Any injury suffered at work in this job might lead to a claim. You might be hurt while lifting boxes that are too heavy for you, simply because your employer did not provide adequate lifting equipment. You might be injured when something falls on your feet because you didn’t have steel toe-capped boots on.

    Whatever the case might be, calling Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500 could be a good move. If you have a chance to make a claim for compensation because someone else caused the accident that led to your injury, make that claim today with our help.

    Our lawyers are standing by to see if they can help you through this experience. All it takes is one phone call to get things started.
