OuIf you are an ex-employee or a customer who has been injured in a Co-Op store, you might be entitled to claim compensation.

If your injuries were due to health and safety failings at a Co-op branch, then you could be eligible to claim large amounts of compensation due to their negligent behaviour.

Types of Co-op Accident Claims

All supermarkets have a responsibility to ensure that their staff and customers are safe while they are in their stores or warehouses. Therefore, health and safety standards must be met, and the Co-op must provide an adequate work environment. If it fails to do so, this could lead to an accident which would make the Co-op liable to pay compensation for any injuries received.

We have expert solicitors on hand to help you claim compensation if you have been injured at a Co-op store or warehouse. At First Personal Injury, our team are highly regarded and are always happy to help. We have already worked with many clients, providing them with great legal advice and compensation.

If the Co-Op do not follow health and safety standards, its stores and warehouses could potentially become dangerous. Therefore it is important that the Co-op upholds its responsibility to ensure your safety while you are inside its stores and warehouses. Below are some possible accidents and injuries that could arise if health and safety standards are not met.

Common causes of accidents include:

  • Storage and racking problems
  • Falls from ladders
  • Slips, Trips and Falls due to liquid spills
  • Injury in a carpark
  • Contact with harmful substances – such as those used for cleaning or other reasons
  • Objects falling – if boxes are not properly stored they could fall and cause an injury
  • Issues with working temperatures
  • Food health and hygiene safety
  • Manual handling problems

Types of injuries sustained in Co-op

Some possible injuries sustained in a Co-op shop or warehouse include:

  • Back Injuries – likely to be caused by manual handling or a slip, trip or fall accident
  • Heat burns – possibly due to oil or equipment
  • Chemical burns – due to a lack of proper Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and training about how to handle substances
  • Food poisoning – due to a lack of health and hygiene standards or the use of out of date food
  • Crush injuries – due to falling objects or falling shelves/racks

If an accident occurs due to negligence on the part of the Co-op, you may be eligible to claim large amount of compensation.

Claims against the Co-op

If you believe you have suffered an injury in a Co-op store or warehouse due to an accident that wasn’t your fault, you may be eligible for compensation. It is possible to claim compensation for any injuries that you have received but you might also be entitled to claim for a loss of earnings if you have been unable to return to work due to the accident. After learning the details of your case, our expert solicitors will be able to assess any potential compensation.
