These days, fewer and fewer people are physically doing a large weekly shop at one of the big four supermarkets. More people are doing their shopping online, while others are going to discount stores in an effort to save money. Nevertheless, many supermarket groups continue to expand, not only with new large stores, but also with convenience store-like outlets in large towns and cities. One of the large supermarkets was recently even rumoured to be mulling a move into the take-away food market.
Despite all of this, their main businesses, the big stores you typically find just on the outskirts of towns, appear to be just as busy as ever, which is why it’s important that they spend money on the upkeep of these sites. If supermarkets allowed their large stores to deteriorate, there would be a chance that customers could be injured in accidents that were not their fault while they were visiting them.
If this were to happen to you, you might well be able to use the services of a top-notch 100% no win no fee personal injury accident claims in Broadland solicitor to claim a personal injury compensation pay-out.
Supermarkets and accident claims in Broadland
Imagine that you had gone to your local supermarket to do your weekly shop. It’s a Saturday morning, so the place is pretty business. As such you have trouble parking, and have to make do with a space some way away from the store. “No matter,” you think to yourself, with thoughts of having to take accident claims in Broadland action after suffering an injury as the result of an incident that was not your fault very far from your mind.
You get everything you need, go through the checkout (a staffed one as you have too much shopping to use self-service), and then make your way out to your car, having made sure to use any vouchers you had on you and getting your loyalty card scanned. You have a packed trolley, and have trouble negotiating the route back to your car with such a heavy load. Just before you reach your vehicle, your trolley hits a pot hole. It falls to the side, and as you try to control it, your foot gets caught underneath it when it lands on the floor. Your foot is broken.
As the supermarket in question would have had a responsibility to make sure that its car park was free from potential accident risks, you might be able to use the services of a decent 100% no win, no fee solicitor for your accident claims in Broadland to seek a compensation pay-out in this circumstances.
