Trips, slips and falls are common in supermarkets with workers and customers equally vulnerable. Studies show that the majority of supermarket injuries occur in the entrances and the first few aisles. Accidents commonly occur due to slippery and wet flooring, food spillages and loose products on the floor. If you’ve sustained any injuries as a result of a slip or fall in a supermarket, you may be able to rightfully claim compensation.
I was a passenger in a car involved in a road traffic accident and suffered serious injuries to my right shoulder, my elbow and scarring to my forehead. I was unable to work for a long time. First Personal Injury dealt with my case from the outset. I never expected that I would receive £21,191.00 of compensation for my injuries and other losses I had as a result of the accident. I am delighted with the outcome of my claim and would definitely recommend First Personal Injury to anyone who wants to make an accident claim.

Supermarkets are often busy environments which can naturally lead to a lot of trips, slips and falls. Case studies from the health & safety executive (HSE) identify poorly managed supermarket floors as a serious cause of injury to customers and workers:
‘A female shopper left compelled to use a wheelchair after slipping on a mushroom in a supermarket, was awarded £550,000 in compensation.’
‘Supermarket worker awarded £200,000 following a heavy fall on an uncleaned floor.’
Wet or slippery tiled store entrances can be extremely dangerous for unsuspecting shoppers. Furthermore, loose products & liquid spillages in the aisles can be easily left unattended, resulting in unnecessary accidents.
Supermarkets have a responsibility to adhere to basic health & safety regulations which should prevent you, where possible, from receiving injury. If you’ve sustained a supermarket related injury that wasn’t your fault, you may be able to rightly seek compensation.
