Aldi COMPENSATION CLAIMS
Most customers or workers are not involved in an accident while shopping or on shift but it is still possible to suffer an accident in a supermarket or warehouse. If you have been injured while at a supermarket, you may be entitled to compensation for any injuries that you have suffered.
Whether you are a customer, direct employee, or agency worker you deserve to feel safe when at your place of work or while shopping. There are certain health and safety regulations that supermarkets must meet to ensure that you are safe during your weekly shop or while working. If these standards are not met and this results in an accident, the supermarket may owe you compensation for any injuries that have occurred.
Aldi Injuries and accidents
While most customers return from their weekly shop without suffering any type of injury and most employees are still safe at the end of their shift, there is always the possibility that accidents could happen.
Possible scenarios where customers and staff might suffer an injury include:
- Manual handling injuries
- Food health and safety illnesses
- Hygiene illnesses
- Car park accidents
- Incidents caused by falling objects such as boxes
- Falls from ladders
- Escalator injuries
- Storage or racking injuries
- Slips, trips and falls
- Oil or hot equipment injuries – usually sustained in a kitchen
- Temperature injuries
- Harmful substances – such as chemicals used for cleaning purposes
- Injury caused by machinery in the warehouse
Some of the common injuries include:
- Chemical burns – due to employers not providing the correct Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) or training about how to interact with chemicals safely
- Heat burns – usually due to oil or kitchen equipment
- Crush injuries – due to machinery or falling objects
- Food poisoning – due to a lack of health standards while storing, preparing or cooking or the use of out of date food

AMOUNT OF COMPENSATION in claims against Aldi
All personal injury cases are unique and so the amount of compensation that is awarded in each case is also unique. The amount of compensation that is awarded is determined by looking at two specific factors – general damages and special damages.
The pain and suffering that your injuries have caused is the main factor that is used to determine how much compensation you are owed.
However, compensation also takes into account any financial losses that you might have suffered as a result of your injuries, such as a loss of earnings due to being unable to return to work.
Except for children, there is a three-year time limit on making a personal injury claim. This time limit begins from the date that the accident occurred. You should contact a personal injury solicitor as soon as possible to assess your case.
