Supermarkets and other shops should have an accident/incident book to record any issues that occur in store. When it comes to making your claim it’s helpful if this is noted in the incident book. If it isn’t and the incident wasn’t captured on CCTV, it may be difficult to establish that the injury occurred in the store.
Make them aware so it is recorded in the incident book, but make sure you make no guarantees in terms of whether or not you’ll be making a personal injury claim.
Having injured yourself, gauging an understanding of your surroundings isn’t necessarily the first thing you’re going to think to do, but it may form a key part of your claim. If for example, you’ve injured yourself in a supermarket by slipping on a wet floor, the supermarket will likely be held liable if there was no sign indicating the floor is wet. If there was a sign, it would be assumed a reasonable person would not walk on the floor or would at least take more care. Make a note of this as soon as the accident has occurred.
