Claiming for a Supermarket Accident

All the supermarkets across the UK hold special responsibility for duty of care towards the buyers. Supermarket owners are liable for making sure that the supermarket area is accident proof and the buyers are absolutely safe while shopping in the supermarket. You are entitled to proper compensation if you meet a personal injury while shopping in a supermarket due to the supermarket owner’s negligence. Supermarket owners can be held negligent if they fail in putting warning signs before accident prone areas such as wet floors and also neglect any repair work. A supermarket owner must make sure that unnecessary materials are not stuffed in the walkways as it can obstruct and can possibly hurt the buyers while they are browsing in the supermarket. Most of the big supermarkets can successfully escape the personal injury compensation claims made by buyers as they keep written record of regular cleaning and check up of stores. In that case, you must do the following things while claiming for a supermarket accident in a big supermarket-

  • Victims must consult a personal injury solicitor working on a no win basis while claiming for a supermarket accident. These solicitors can guide the victim on how to get maximum compensation in the personal injury claim. Victims can also save lot of money by opting to these solicitors who takes no fee for fighting a claim case. It is paramount to scrutinise the credibility, experience and track record of the solicitor before handling over the personal injury compensation claim case.
  • Recording the supermarket accident in the supermarket’s accident book is paramount for getting compensation. All the supermarkets maintain an accident book in which they record names of those who have met an accident in their supermarket.
  • Having name and contact details of eye witnesses can also make the compensation claim stronger. Eye witnesses are contacted so as to verify your innocence in the supermarket accident.
  • Take the photograph of the offended area such as drooping advertising board in your mobile phone as it can validate your supermarket accident compensation case.
  • Victims must go for a complete medical check up so as to know if they have incurred any hidden injuries in the supermarket accident. Victim or the family of the victim must keep the medical report intact because the amount of compensation rewarded depends highly on the severity of injury incurred in the supermarket accident.
