    Compensation for slipping on supermarket produce

    When you’re shopping for fresh fruit and vegetables at your local supermarket, the last thing you expect is to be involved in an accident. That clean-up on aisle 9 might not have happened as quickly as it should have – and if you have been injured after slipping on supermarket produce, the supermarket owner could be held liable for your injuries.

    Here at Accident Advice Helpline, we have been helping our customers to claim personal injury compensation on a 100% no win, no fee* basis for 15 years, and our expert personal injury advisors are on hand to offer confidential, no-obligation advice.

    Finding fault – who’s to blame?

    When you shop at the supermarket, it’s the supermarket operator’s responsibility to ensure the premises are safe. Smashed bottles and jars of produce can cause spillages which could easily lead to a slip or trip – even squashed fresh produce such as fruit and vegetables can make the floor slippery and could cause an accident which could have been avoided. Spillages should be cleared up promptly to reduce the risk of an accident occurring – if you slip on a wet floor, you could suffer serious injuries such as:

    • A sprained ankle
    • Fractured leg, ankle or foot
    • Head injuries
    • Sprained or fractured wrist
    • Cuts and bruises
    • Back, neck and shoulder injuries

    These injuries may be minor but if you have been seriously injured you could take months or even years to make a full recovery – for example, back pain can be ongoing and could affect your ability to work.

    If you’ve been left struggling financially after your accident, it might be worth considering claiming personal injury compensation, so take the 30-second test on our website to see how much you could claim.

    Will I have to go to court?

    The good news is that most personal injury claims are settled out of court, so it’s unlikely you’ll need to attend a court hearing. Whether you have slipped on a spillage in the freezer aisle or have suffered back injuries after slipping and falling on fresh produce, Accident Advice Helpline can help you claim personal injury compensation, provided it’s been three years or less since your accident.
