Accidents In Shops And Supermarkets

Shopping trips are likely to be part of your day to day life or weekly routine. And whilst strolling down the aisles with your basket or trolley, you should always expect to feel safe.

In most cases, a visit to the local supermarket or corner shop doesn’t require a second thought. But if something does go wrong and an accident occurs through no fault of your own, you could make a claim for compensation.

Typical accidents in shops or supermarkets are usually caused by:

  • slipping on a substance which should have been cleaned up by a member of staff
  • tripping over packaging or debris left on the shop floor by a member of staff
  • items falling on you as a result of them being unsafely stacked on shelves
  • staff members pushing trolleys or cages into you
  • the shop failing to repair holes or defects in the floor which cause you to trip or fall
  • advertising material falling on you
