While many people used to head out to their local shops to get their weekly food, many of us now go to supermarkets. It’s often easier to get everything we need under one roof, as it frees up plenty of time to go out and do other things as well.
Thankfully, most of us use supermarkets on a regular basis without incident. However, there can potentially be times when people could be hurt in a supermarket accident. For example, someone might spill something on the floor and fail to clean it up. This could lead you to slip over in it and hurt yourself, if there was no warning sign to indicate it was there. Another example might be overloaded shelves that collapse when you go near them, sending heavy produce down on top of you.
How badly could you be injured in a supermarket accident?
Obviously, it will depend on exactly what happens to you. If you slip over in a spillage and twist your ankle, you could sprain it or even break a bone. If you fall somehow and put your hands out to catch yourself, you might end up breaking something that way as well.
Any injury may be frustrating to cope with, painful to suffer from and it could affect your daily routine as well. All these things should be borne in mind when it comes to considering who was at fault and whether you might be in a position to claim compensation.
