Have you experienced an accident in Craven whilst in a supermarket or shop?
Although many people still use independent shops for some items, most people now do the majority of their food shopping in large supermarkets. In addition to being more convenient these larger stores can offer cheaper prices which entice many shoppers.
Due to the variety of products on offer, many supermarkets now occupy vast premises and feature cafes, restaurants and even offer services such as eye testing or medical advice. Although most supermarkets have numerous staff on duty at any one time, it can be difficult for staff to keep track of what’s happening in every part of the store.
Need help with claiming compensation?
If for example, something is spilled, it may take staff a few minutes, at least, to be notified and to rectify the problem. However, if someone is hurt or slips during this time, or if staff take no action and someone suffers an accident in Craven as a result, the supermarket could be held responsible for their injuries.
Similarly, if the fixtures and fittings within the supermarket aren’t secure and they were to fall or injure someone, an accident may result. Again, this could be considered the fault of the supermarket or the staff and the person injured could make a compensation claim against them.
Although no-one wants to experience an accident or suffer an injury, it can be reassuring to know that there is action you can take should this occur. If you’ve been hurt or suffered a serious accident in Craven, you may not want to make your claim straightaway.
