Supermarket Claims

When out shopping for your groceries or perhaps a new item of clothing, you do not expect to have an accident and injure yourself. All shops, whether big or small, have a duty of care to shoppers to ensure their safety whilst in store.

Sadly though, all too often, we are contacted by members of the public who have fallen in a supermarket or high street store due to store negligence. Very often we hear of trips and slips caused by food or debris on the shop floor or uneven flooring/raised matting or carpet. Another common example would be wet floors, with no warning signs present, causing a slip hazard. Trollies and baskets can also be a hazard if not property maintained and we have also heard of store employees colliding with shoppers whilst wheeling around stock to be put out.
