Injured in Supermarket

Supermarkets are places that are always full of activity and a lot of hustle and bustle. People are wheeling trolleys and items are constantly being moved around. When so much activity is going on, getting injured in supermarket is very common.

The shop accidents can happen in any shop irrespective of the size of business it runs. These are basically those mishaps which the shoppers are faced with when any negligence or mistake on the part of the employer or the staff of a specific shop occurs. When these shop accidents occur the victims are rightly liable to file suit against this concerned shop or its employer. This is necessary for getting compensated for those losses that the victim undergoes because of this accident.

Usually, one can get injured in supermarket in the following ways:

  • Tripping over the items suspended freely outside the shops, unattended
  • Slipping over wet shop floors
  • Slipping over spilt food items/  liquids
  • Falling over staircases/ escalators
  • Falling in parking lots
  • Getting hurt by items being moved from one position to another

If you have undergone any of the shop accidents in the past three years or recently then you can very aptly file a compensation claim for yourself. If the claim is not made within 3 years of injury it stands invalid by law and hence early action is always recommended. Also, timely claims face lesser problems of gathering the witnesses or evidences to prove the fault of the accused and so they should never be delayed. When making a claim, this is to be ensured that you are at no fault in the occurrence of the accident. The compensation is crucial to be sought as it pays for the medical bills, hospital trips and other injury related expenses that you might have to undertake in the treatment.

Making the accused shop employer or supermarket employee realise their faults is a tough job and thus it is advisable that guidance and assistance of a personal injury solicitor is sought in the matter. These solicitors are well experienced and are aware of all the tricks of the trade that must be employed in order to make you win a handsome amount of money as compensation.

Pedestrian run over by car
Mrs K was knocked over by a car that mounted the pavement, fracturing her tibia. Following extensive medical investigations organised by Cooks, it transpired that the accident brought forward the need for a knee replacement operation in the next 5-10 years. Cooks settled Mrs K’s claim for £28,750.00 she said:
"I am very pleased with the service I have received and would recommend Cookss to my friends. My claim was handled in a very professional manner and I was kept informed of it’s progress. Everyone I met or spoke to was helpful and considerate and I felt confident in their abilities. This was important to me at the time of my accident and later."
