The weekly food shop is an activity which doesn’t get any more exciting each time you do it. It is a necessity to perform and does cost you money. Although you may pick up some bargains it still takes time out of your day.
However one day it could take longer than expected. Accidents are not uncommon in supermarkets as there are many hazards around which you may not initially notice. Personal injury solicitors can represent your case for a compensation claim but what hazards should you be looking for?
Hazards in a supermarket environment
With a high amount of footfall every day supermarkets need to have efficient management and staff in place in order to keep all hazards at bay and under control. One main hazard to be on the lookout for is wet patches. All supermarkets have smooth floors and most of the time that involves tiles. On the already shiny surfaces it can be difficult to see a slippery patch if it is not marked which makes it easy to have an accident.
Trip hazards are also a common feature as stock falls off overstocked shelves or is knocked over by another customer. Tripping and falling on to a hard tiled floor can result in painful injuries which could require the attention of solicitors.
Accident claims in supermarkets
Proceeding with an accident claim in a supermarket can be easier than processing other claims. With multiple customers who can act as eye witnesses to the accident and CCTV covering the shop floor it will be nearly effortless to gather all the necessary evidence.
Using the evidence collected your solicitors in Chipping can present your claim to the head office of the supermarket chain and could already stand a good chance of success with both photographs and footage of the accident. With the evidence and eye witness accounts it will difficult for the defence to argue the facts.
If you have had an accident in a supermarket environment you could be entitled to some compensation money. Tiled floors can give out some painful injuries due to how hard and robust they are so by making a claim you may be compensated for those injuries.
