Supermarket Accident Claims

At Lupton Fawcett, we understand that an injury can have an impact on your life as you may have to take time off work to recover, which can set you back financially. Our solicitors will work hard to get you the compensation you deserve. Call us today on 0333 323 5292, or submit the enquiry form on this page and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

Common accidents

The most common incidents leading to injuries include:

  • items falling from shelves;
  • food or liquid spills;
  • floors not cleaned properly;
  • leaking fridge or freezers;
  • damaged flooring;
  • boxes, pallets, etc. left in the customer’s way.

It is the supermarket’s responsibility to ensure that aisles are kept free of obstructions, any spillages are cleaned up as quickly as possible and safety signs are put up to warn shoppers. If you have suffered an injury and the accident wasn’t your fault, you should contact a lawyer today to find out if you can make a claim.

What can I make a claim for?

Owners must do everything in their power to ensure that all visitors are kept from harm. However, this is not always the case and owners fail to adhere to safety regulations, such as maintaining a good cleaning regime. This lack of attention to health and safety can easily lead to injury. All supermarkets will be covered by public liability insurance to cover the cost of accidents.

Compensation will depend on the severity of your injuries and the effect it has on your life. If it’s difficult to say when you will recover, we will work to make sure your compensation reflects this, likewise if you require early payments so you can pay bills or receive medical treatment.
