Asda injury claims
From time to time, accidents in Asda cannot be prevented and no one is to blame. However, there are occasions when someone becomes injured because of the actions or negligence of Asda or another customer. In these instances, claims for compensation may be brought against Asda.
Causes of accidents in Asda
Some of the most common causes of accidents include:
Spillages or wet floors
Accidents in the store car park
Items falling off shelves
Trips or falls caused by stray items or trolleys
Slipped in Asda?
One of the most common types of accidents that occur in Asda are slips caused by spilt food or drink. An item may have been dropped or fallen off a shelf and not cleaned up within a reasonable timeframe, creating a hazard for customers and staff. Asda should provide their staff with training to deal with spillages like this. They should clean them up as soon as possible and erect a wet floor sign to alert customers.
If you have slipped in Asda and there were no wet floor signs to warn you about the spillage that caused your injury, you may have a claim.
Asda accidents at work
If you are an Asda employee, the company has a duty of care to look after you. Whether you work in-store, in a warehouse or at head office, your manager should ensure that you are properly trained. They should also make sure that they provide you with the correct personal protective equipment (PPE) if appropriate.
If they have failed to do either of these things and you become injured, you may have a valid accident at work claim against Asda.
What to do if you are injured in Asda
If you are injured while shopping in or while working for Asda, you should contact a personal injury solicitor with experience in dealing with supermarket accident claims.
You have just three years from the date of your accident in which to make a claim. Because of this, if you would like to make a claim, you must start the legal process as soon as possible. If you would like to claim on behalf of a child, this three-year timeframe begins on the date of their eighteenth birthday.
