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 an Aldi store or warehouse. If you have been injured while at Aldi, 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 Aldi 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, Aldi may owe you compensation for any injuries that have occurred.
Our personal injury solicitors are always happy to assess your case and help you claim compensation if possible. We have helped many clients claim for shop injuries and warehouse sustained injuries. Furthermore, we operate on a no win no fee basis. Therefore, if we do not win your claim against Aldi then you do not have to pay us any solicitor’s fees.
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- Food poisoning – due to a lack of health standards while storing, preparing or cooking or the use of out of date food
- Back injuries – due to slipping, tripping, falling or manual handling issues
No matter the scenario in which you sustained your injury or the severity of your injury, you might be owed compensation. Call our experts on 0800 342 3206 or enquire online for no-obligation advice about a potential injury claim against Aldi.
WHAT TO DO AFTER AN ACCIDENT AT ALDI?
- Report the incident to Aldi so they can make an official record of it in their accident book.
- Take photos of what has happened-injuries and the scene of the accident.
- Get the details of any witnesses to the accident.
- Evidence of a loss of earnings if your injury has resulted in you needing time off work. Documents related to other financial expenditures connected to your injuries may also be required. This could include travel receipts to and from medical appointments.
- Seek medical attention
HOW DOES THE CLAIMS PROCESS WORK?
At Jefferies Solicitors, once we have carried out an initial consultation, we will take care of the paperwork required to get your case underway.
A letter will be sent to you following an initial consultation with your solicitor. This will be a summary of the discussion you had and will confirm that they are happy to take on your case. It will highlight who will be your contact and estimate how long the process will take. The letter will also detail how you will be funding the case and an estimate of costs. If you need to provide any further information this will also be included.
A letter will then be sent to the defendant, providing details of the accident. The defendant has a fixed period in which they can reply and in their reply, they must state whether or not they are denying or accepting liability for your injuries. If they do accept liability, your solicitor will endeavour to settle the case out of court.
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. This will usually be determined by undergoing a medical examination, from which a report is created that outlines the length of time the injuries will take to heal as well as their severity.
Our compensation calculator gives an indication of how much you might be entitled to based upon your injuries. Jefferies Solicitors will take these different details relating to your injury into account when calculating how much compensation you should be awarded, which will then be put forward to the opposing side and the judge.
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. If you have had to pay for treatment or travel to treatment, compensation may also be able to cover this as well. Therefore, you should keep any receipts or other documents that help to outline the extent of your financial losses, as caused by your accident/injuries.
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.
