The big supermarkets are increasingly coming under pressure from European discounters that are stealing a larger and larger share of the UK grocery market. This is forcing the larger players on to the back foot. Many are cutting their prices and looking for ways to differentiate the services they provide.
One of the more upmarket food retailers now runs a loyalty scheme that gives shoppers money off their food. It also provides a free newspaper and a free hot beverage when customers who are members of the loyalty scheme spend over a certain amount.
The said customers can then sit and read their paper and drink their tea in a café-style area in the store. However, there have been a number of cases where people have been injured in accidents that were not their fault when members of staff at this supermarket failed to put up a sign warning that the machine that dispensed the free drinks was being cleaned. This resulted in customers pouring themselves what they thought to be tea or coffee, only to find out that it was in fact cleaning fluid.
If this were to happened to you, there will be a chance that you might well find yourself in a position where taking personal injury action with a view to making a claim for a public accident in Vale of White Horse might well be an option open to you.
