Doing the weekly food shopping can become a very mundane task. Doing the same trip with the same shopping list means this is one task that will never change. However one day the weekly food shop may become a different experience.
Solicitors in Cardigan point out that there are many hazards around a supermarket which are all around you. Some more severe than others but when you open your eyes a shopping trip to the supermarket will never be the same.
Hazards In A Supermarket
Stocking up shelves is a simple enough task which is done in every business. However when businesses get greedy they over fill shelves in order to make more money. This is a hazard. Despite the size of the products in question if an item should fall onto someone or become a trip hazard they could be an accident.
Solicitors in Cardigan also add that many fixtures cannot support the weight of the products being placed there and this itself can be very dangerous. If this fitting should fall on top of someone this would be a case for a compensation claim.
Other hazards include electronic devices. If they are not tested properly or checked for frayed wires there could be an electric shock waiting.
Solicitors In Cardigan And Supermarket Claims
Making a claim for an accident in a supermarket can be easier than making claims elsewhere. An advantage being that supermarkets generally have CCTV and lots of shoppers. This means that case already has CCTV footage of the accident and eye witnesses.
Having evidence to support your claim means you stand a good chance at winning the claim. Depending on what supermarket the accident happens in the defending party may be different. However in most circumstances the responsible party in the compensation claim will be the head office of the supermarket chain.
If you have recently been in an accident in a supermarket that was not your fault you could be entitled to make a claim with solicitors in Cardigan. Negligence to health and safety is looked at very dimly by any governing body as the accident could have been prevented.
