Although workplace accidents are common, not all of them affect employees – supermarkets are open to the public, so consumers are often injured in slips and falls. Similarly, not all supermarket accidents are the same, many are similar, but some are more unusual than others.
Most supermarket accidents involve someone knocking a display over or slipping on something, but a search through old media would throw up all sorts of strange supermarket accidents. There are tales of victims being run over by mobility scooters, cars running into shop windows, people being trapped and hurt by trolleys running into them, and a whole host of other accidents that you probably would never think of.
Strange or not, supermarket injuries are serious and potentially very dangerous. As such, they need to be taken seriously and victims may be entitled to compensation to deal with their injuries as long as they fit the criteria for making a claim:
- You must have been in an accident that was the fault of someone else
- You must have suffered injuries in the accident
- Your injuries must have needed medical attention
- The accident should have happened within the last three years
