    Compensation for slipping at the supermarket


    Supermarkets can be very busy places. Depending on when you visit there can be hundreds of other people in the same store, all shopping at the same time. It is vitally important that the staff and managers of each store take every care to ensure the supermarket is safe and pleasant to use.

    This includes making sure there are no hazards that have not been dealt with. A risk assessment should be undertaken in every supermarket, as is the case in every shop of every size, to ensure accidents can be kept to an absolute minimum.

    Slipping at the supermarket is possible if there is a spillage of any kind on the floor that has not been cleaned up. Sometimes it is not possible to see spillages and even if they are fairly obvious they should still be cleaned up as quickly as possible. Warning signs should also be included to minimise the chances of anyone slipping at the supermarket. A slip can result in a variety of injuries, including bumps, bruises, fractures and even concussion, if you hit your head on something as you fall. As you can see, those in charge in a supermarket have an important job to do in minimising these situations.

    Suffering injuries in the supermarket

    The last thing you would expect to go through when visiting the supermarket is to suffer an accident. However, there is the potential for accidents to happen in these busy places, especially if due care, attention and health and safety rules are not adhered to. Typical injuries can include bruises and cuts from falls incurred when someone slips on a wet floor. Other examples can include shelving that is unstable and could collapse and oil and other more slippery spillages other than water. As you can see, if the proper rules and regulations are not followed there is indeed the potential for slipping at the supermarket.
